Ascena Retail Group selected Gray to provide design-build services on the 457,995 s.f. expansion of its existing distribution facility in Pataskala, Ohio. The 303,000 s.f. distribution center distributes clothing for Justice, Maurice’s, Lane Bryant, Dress Barn and Catherine’s stores. A portion of the existing warehouse was demolished for the erection of a truly unique office structure featuring a three-story load-bearing curtain wall and organic design with multiple radiuses and an interior storefront. The facility also includes a 145,633 s.f. office area that was specifically designed for employee wellness including a yoga room, fitness gym, lactation room, first-aid room, coffee area with a daily supply of fruit and a kitchen area designed around healthy options. A 9,362 s.f. data center is also part of the campus and has redundant mechanical, electrical and fire protection systems throughout as well as a hardened outer structure that provides wind protection up to 160 mph.
