Dot Foods


Project Details

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. These challenges didn’t deter Primus’s safety mission. This project earned our 200 Safe Days designation.

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.
