Gold Coast Eagle Distribution Warehouse Sarasota, Florida
TRC Worldwide Engineering, Inc. provided structural engineering design, construction administration and inspection services for this $19.5 million, 170,000 square foot distribution, storage and office warehouse facility. The building includes 120,000 square feet of temperature-controlled warehouse and 50,000 additional square feet of corporate offices and hospitality space for the nation's 46th largest Anheuser Busch distributorship. The architect applied towers, columns and stonework in a Southern European-influenced design that reminds one, not of a plain metal warehouse, but of a northern California winery. 46 million pounds of concrete was used in construction; and the building is so solidly built that the owner offered it as staging space for emergency personnel should a natural disaster occur. Nonprofit organizations are invited to use its community meeting space, tasting room and garden for free.
