DeCrescente Distributing Company
C.T. Male provided Site Planning, Engineering, and Architectural services for a major distribution company on multiple projects. DeCrescente Distributing Company (DDC) is a top Capital District company with a long history in Mechanicville.
Point of Sale Warehouse and Training Center
DeCrescente Distributing Company desired to stay in Mechanicville, but its existing facility was not large enough to keep up with its growth. C.T. Male initially provided land planning, and approval process service, and ultimately was contracted to provide architectural services for new property development across from its primary facility.
The new development includes a single story high bay “Point of Sale” warehouse which holds primarily marketing products. Once this prime use was achieved, C.T. Male’s site plan allowed for the additional development of a Training/Conference Center. This two story building was designed to also include a Health Center for the company’s employees.
This project required the full extent of C.T. Male’s services: beginning with Boundary and Topographic Survey Services, Site Planning, Site Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Architecture, and Building Systems Engineering.
Main Facility Warehouse Expansion
The new development allowed for a warehouse expansion at the primary DeCrescente Distributing Company facility. C.T. Male conducted all site planning and engineering for the expansion. Town approval process, construction phasing and implementation truck turning analysis, were all specific design elements to limit operational disruptions.
Best Road Parking Development
A truck delivery staging lot was developed to provide better truck staging on-site. The developed site included environment conditions limiting the depth of utilities. C.T. Male was able to achieve the project goals without impacting the underlying contaminated soils.
