Construction Complete at New FedEx Ground Distribution Hub in Ocala, Florida
Dewberry helped design the recently completed FedEx Ground facility in the northwest corner of Ocala, Florida. The firm performed due diligence, site/civil engineering, surveying and mapping, environmental services, permitting, construction administration, and landscape architecture design.
The 430,000-square-foot facility—expandable ultimately to 630,000 square feet—supports FedEx’s existing Orlando operations and is designed to accommodate a nearly 200,000-square-foot build-out for additional ancillary buildings. In addition to the main building, the 150-acre site includes a mechanical maintenance facility with a gas island, gateway entry building, and secure gate houses. Located within a sinkhole-prone area, Dewberry coordinated with geotechnical engineers to design a pile-supported site and enhance facility stabilization.
Dewberry’s relationship with FedEx spans nearly two decades and includes facility assessments, surveying, site/civil engineering, emergency repairs, transportation, water, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural design projects for facility renovations, expansions, and new construction.
