R+L Carriers Distribution & Maintenance Facility Expansion
Location: Sauget, IL | Owner: R+L Carriers | Architect: ArcWest Architects
Located on Sauget Industrial Parkway, R+L Carriers needed to increase its in-house vehicle maintenance operations capacity to service its growing logistics fleet that delivers goods nationwide.
Poettker served as the general contractor for the 16,000 SF expansion and 17,000 SF renovation project, including an extension to the existing inground maintenance pit. A new canopy was added over the wash area. Site improvements entailed concrete and asphalt patching.
To mimic the facility’s existing aesthetic, Poettker utilized tilt-up construction and R+L’s signature paint scheme for the expansion. Over 20 panels were placed, totaling 8,200 SF of tilt-up wall panel construction.
Poettker collaborated with R+L’s project team to limit the impact to the freight distribution docks that remained open during construction.
