Target Distribution Centre
Address: 1501 Industrial Park Drive, Cornwall
Completion date: 2013
Building area: 1,350,000 sq.ft.
In 2011, Target embarked on a process of market penetration into Canada with its purchase of 189 Zellers stores across the country. However, Target opted not to purchase the distribution centres and therefore needed to have these built according to particular specifications in order to accommodate the supply of various goods to their stores.
Broccolini built the new 1.35M sq.ft. distribution centre for Target, a retail giant. Located on a 169 acre site in the Cornwall Business Park, the Eastern Target Canadian Distribution Centre is one of three major facilities the retailer commissioned for construction in Canada. The Cornwall building served all the Target stores in Eastern Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic Provinces.
The distribution center included a fully automated material handling system which included more than 7,915 linear ft. of conveyors.
Between 2012 and 2013, Broccolini also built Target stores in Ontario and Quebec.
"We are thrilled to have been selected by Target," says Broccolini CEO, John Broccolini. "We have strong experience in the construction of distribution centres as well as big box stores for major retailers."Print
