Pella Warehouse and Distribution Center

Omaha, Nebraska

Pella was outgrowing its current warehouse capacity and office space. Additionally, its location had some major traffic flow issues with only a single entry point for receiving, delivery, clients and contractors. Pella took advantage of the opportunity at its new site to include an entrance and parking lot for clients that was independent from the warehouse traffic, including trucks, contractors and employees. With a larger warehouse footprint, our team was able to add the necessary loading docks and improve the product flow in and out of the warehouse.

The new facility design includes:

  • 8,450 SF on both floors of the two-story office space;
  • Level 1 includes a 2,500-SF showroom and reception space for product display, as well as small event gatherings;
  • Separate office entrance for contractor and service inquiries;
  • Open office layout with 1,800 SF for future growth, currently shell space, on Level 2;
  • 46,000-SF warehouse;
  • Eleven dock doors, including eight outbound and three inbound;
  • Five drive-up doors for smaller contractor pick-ups, such as cargo vans or pickup trucks;
  • Two on-site paint booths for custom finishing; and
  • Contractor breakroom/vending.
