Dollar General Distribution Center, Jackson, GA

Élan was engaged to provide site design and engineering services for this 150-acre site for the development of a new distribution center for Dollar General in Jackson, GA. Site design included a 1 million sf distribution center, as well as outbuildings including, guardhouses, truck maintenance facility, fire pump house and reservoir, and dispatch facility. Design included site layout for truck circulation, trailer parking, employee parking, and tractor-truck parking. Stormwater management included four large retention ponds to reduce downstream impacts. The site was configured to fit within the natural streams to avoid impact to any streams or existing wetlands that reside on the site. Site design required close coordination with the local sewer and water authority to extend utilities to the site.
