Will Hodges, President of Cadence McShane Construction Company, is pleased to announce that construction of the new 266,400-square-foot Dallas Polymers Terminal, the industrial distribution/warehouse facility, is now complete.
Located in Hutchins, Texas, Dallas Polymers Terminal is prominently positioned on a 23-acre parcel at 1600 W Wintergreen Road just west of Interstate 45 and south of Interstate 20. The site offers easy access to both major transportation corridors and direct rail access through the Union Pacific network.
The Katoen Natie group, operates port terminals, logistics terminals, and on-site terminals. The company also provides semi-industrial services; designs, builds and manages logistics platforms; and completes supply chains to different industries. Katoen Natie specifically uses the Dallas Polymers Terminal facility to supply and store pellets, or polymers, in the warehouse facility to then distribute to other companies worldwide.
Cadence McShane constructed the two-story facility utilizing pre-engineered metal frames and concrete tilt-wall panels. The firm also completed the 259,200-square-foot interior made of galvanized framing for the open warehouse. The 7,200-square-foot office space features conference rooms, IT space, break rooms, and training spaces for Katoen Natie employees.
Wade Wimbish, Senior Project Manager on this warehouse says, “The project team and myself appreciate the opportunity to contribute our industrial warehouse expertise to succeed on this project for Katoen Natie.”
The industrial distribution/warehouse facility in Hutchins, Texas represents Cadence McShane’s second project for Katoen Natie, with a previous facility completed in 2014 in La Porte, Texas located east of Houston.
Clint McCullah, Director of Corporate Services for Cadence McShane, worked directly with Katoen Natie to help facilitate the development of the Dallas Polymers Terminal. “The successful completion of Katoen Natie’s second polymers terminal is a testament to our dedicated team of construction professionals committed to providing relentless service to our valued client,” stated McCullah.
The ribbon cutting ceremony was held on October 23rd and included a walkthrough of the new industrial warehouse and the Dallas Intermodal terminal where containers are loaded and unloaded onto the rail for connection to the West Coast.
