Dot Foods – Bullhead City

Dot Foods is the largest food re-distributor in the country. They offer more than 112,000 products and deliver them in LTL (less-than-truckload) quantities to distributors in all 50 states. When it came time to expand their offerings in the Southwest, Dot selected Primus to provide turn-key design and construction services on their new, 190,000 SF cold and dry storage distribution facility. Features include:

  • 39,000 SF Freezer (-10°)
  • 17,000 SF Cooler (35°)
  • Flexible wall to create a fourth temperature space (55°)
  • 81,000 SF Dry storage
  • 18,000 SF Cold dock (35°)
  • 69,000 SF Opportunity Charging Area
  • 46,000 SF Engine Room
  • 12,700 SF Office
  • 20 dock doors

The climate in Bullhead City was extremely challenging. Crews worked from 2:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. because the steel was too hot to touch during the afternoon. Primus provided misting stations to ensure workers could maintain a comfortable body temperature.

The new facility will employ 170 people by 2020.

This project was named Best Industrial Process Project and Project of the Year by the Design-Build Institute of America’s Southeast Chapter.
