Jim Cooper Construction of Birmingham, Alabama recently completed a 72,023 sq.ft. facility in Eastaboga, Alabama. The facility handles inbound and outbound packages for sort and transit for both FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery. The facility has future expansion potential of a full 87,575 square feet of space once expanded.
The building utilizes a Nucor Building System with a CFR, Standing Seam roof to maintain a weathertight structure. Bar joists were also used from Vulcraft to reach spans of 60’ for the secondary members supporting the standing seam roof. This helped to minimize the need for additional building primary framing and columns as well as maximize usable interior floor space.
Jim Cooper Construction offers Design/ Build services and they are long time Nu- cor builder. They currently have several projects underway across the U.S. and are considered a premier contractor for their clients as well as for Nucor Building Sys- tems. We would like to thank everyone at Jim Cooper Construction for their many years of continued partnership with Nucor Building Systems.
