Amazon Fulfillment Center in Missouri Features Large Concrete Parking Lot

The Amazon Fulfillment Center in St. Charles, MO, seen here is a testament to concrete construction with 2.3 million square feet of concrete floor space stacked within four stories of tilt-up wall panels and 1,570,000 square feet of concrete parking lot and paving, reports NRMCA Senior Vice President, Local Paving, Jon Hansen. NRMCA Producer member Breckenridge Material Company supplied contractor Fenix Construction Company a continuous supply of ready mixed concrete.

“The developer was insistent on a structure that would stand the test of time due to sustainability and decided on concrete over any other available building material. Unlike asphalt, concrete yields an extensive life cycle so a concrete parking lot was chosen. Not only were the loading dock areas concrete, all parking lots as well as driveways incorporated concrete. Amazon is a true testament to the beauty and efficiency of such a versatile product,” wrote the general contractor.
