The Ideal Choice for Distribution Centers
Colorado Springs, Colorado is a recent location for an Amazon distribution center. Considered the largest building in Colorado and the largest of its kind in the country, the distribution center boasts a total of 4M Square Feet. Asphalt was chosen as the pavement type to meet the demands of the high-volume parking lot project. Amazon chose asphalt as the pavement of choice due to speed of construction, sustainability, and cost. The project team was given lofty expectations to meet the fast-paced construction goals. The quick speed of construction offered by asphalt allowed 2,000 tons of asphalt to be placed each day, and 1,804 parking spaces constructed for Amazon associates. In total, 130,000 tons of asphalt were placed at Amazon’s Colorado Springs campus.
