Morgan Distributing

Working within a design-build team, Mackenzie provided comprehensive A/E services for this build-to-suit facility for Morgan Distributing, a provider of beverage products to northern and central Oregon. The 100,100 SF building shell houses a range of uses, including corporate offices, conditioned storage, retail sales, visitor hospitality space and a beverage tasting. A 14,000 SF mezzanine provides additional storage. Specialized features include a secure perimeter, driver check-in/check-out functions, and a 4,800 SF standalone truck fueling/wash/repair facility.

The design successfully addressed constraints posed by the adjacent environmental zone that reduced allowable stormwater outflows, unstable soils that required strategically-timed preloading, and a nearby protected drinking water well-head that limited fueling operations. The completed project both improves operational efficiencies and provides a showcase facility that enhances employee and customer recruitment and retention.
