Choate Construction, McQueen Distribution Bring New Facility to Summerville

CHARLESTON, SC  – In conjunction with McQueen Distribution, represented by OMNI Partners, Choate Construction Company begins construction of a 110,000-SF speculative warehouse just outside of Charleston, South Carolina. Situated in the McQueen Industrial Park, the facility will capitalize on the quick access to land, air, and sea to meet the growing demand for fast shipping and product delivery in the competitive industrial space.

“The team is excited to work on McQueen Distribution’s newest facility,” says Tim Heichelbech, Vice President and Charleston Division Manager. “With more than 60 industrial projects in and around Charleston contributing to 84 million square feet delivered across the southeast, we have seen market demand continue to grow in the Lowcountry, and we look forward to serving an integral role as McQueen’s partners in this advancing market.”

Once complete, the concrete tilt-wall structure will offer 18 dock positions, two truck ramps with drive-in doors, a 48-space parking lot with an expandable option, and a flexible design to suit the needs of future tenants. The property will also feature a unique dedicated food truck space equipped with utilities to provide convenient lunch options for tenant personnel.

“We continue to work closely with our industry and trade partners and project teams to craft a delicate schedule, stay on top of material shortages and lead times, and ensure our clients are taken care of every step of the way when navigating this booming market.”

This distribution project is expected to deliver in Spring 2023.
