49.8 acres | 285,000 sf buillding
The automated Kroger fulfillment center is a 285,000 sf facility located in Aurora, Colorado, that provides grocery delivery for customers across the region. The facility expands the Kroger brand into one of the fastest-growing areas and provides an increased workforce. In addition to employing 400 associates, the facility is highly automated with robotics and artificial intelligence powered by Ocado Group.
Galloway provided civil engineering, landscape architecture, and survey services for the 49.8-acre site. The site work involved the distribution facility and the associated fuel station, van wash, and repair shop. Significant coordination was required with the developer throughout multiple phases of the project to ensure the infrastructure they provided was designed to tie appropriately into the site.
Construction staking was conducted, and the civil engineering design included three water detention facilities, water mains, and sewer mains throughout the site. Due to the proximity to Denver International Airport, the plant species and pond drain times were extensively considered, and coordination with a geotechnical engineer for soil testing helped establish a balanced site.
Construction on this facility was completed in March 2023.
