Projects / Industrial / CKS Packaging
CKS Packaging is a family-owned nationwide manufacturer and supplier of plastic containers based in Atlanta, Georgia. They have been operating for over 50 years, manufacturing plastic bottles for food, beverage, consumer goods, chemical products, automotive, and other industries. They have additional manufacturing facilities in Georgia, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.
CKS partnered with Jonkman Construction to expand a storage facility at one of their existing Kansas City locations. The new addition consists of 140,000 sq. ft. of pre-engineered metal building and a 3,200 sq. ft. compressor building, essentially doubling the size of their existing facilities. In addition, the project required the relocation of a railroad spur to accommodate the new structure, allowing up to 6 rail cars to park alongside the building, where plastic resins used in the manufacturing process can be offloaded directly into the building through a series of hoses that connect to the rail cars. The building construction was comprised of a CECO Pre-Engineered Metal Building structure, ESFR Fire Sprinkler System, slab on grade exceeding FF-55, warehouse office space, and high bay warehouse LED lighting.
Sitework consisted of milling and overlaying both existing and new asphalt parking lots, concrete dock aprons, concrete retaining walls, and stormwater detention basins. From creation through construction, the project was completed in eight months.
