Partnering with PepsiCo
Building a facility that builds opportunities for the client and the surrounding workforce.
The Commerce Crossroads facility will distribute PepsiCo beverage products, increasing the capacity to deliver additional PepsiCo beverages to cities surrounding Commerce, Georgia. The early partnership between PepsiCo, the Developer, and the Project Team allowed Carroll Daniel to better accommodate PepsiCo’s building and operational needs. The new Commerce Crossroads manufacturing and distribution facility will create 50 jobs for the area, from production specialists to CDL-A drivers.
A Challenging Site
Building solutions despite sitework delays.
Sitework at Commerce Crossroads included 40’ deep excavations, which revealed seven underground streams in various places across the site. The streams created schedule delays for sitework, as the project team was continually working to control the water in order to dry large areas of the site. To mitigate this, stream heads were individually located, and the water was piped into the storm drainage system – an effective and efficient solution that still allowed us to deliver the project on-time.
This new facility is an integral next step in our recent expansion in the state of Georgia. Our Commerce facility will increase our capacity and productivity in the state, enabling PepsiCo to better service the needs of our customers across key counties in northern Georgia and give them the great beverages they love while creating job opportunities on the ground.
