This expansion allows the global retailer to significantly increase daily output to support its growing online business. The project, completed in just eight months, stayed on track despite a wintery beginning and the challenges of the rainy season. The building clear height in 40′, which will accommodate the new AS/RS and sorting equipment allowing Gap to double throughput capacity for the facility.


The two mezzanines are included in the facility – a 6,000 s.f. office area over the breakroom and a 75,000 s.f. mezzanine for material handling equipment. The east wall of the expansion is a Maximum Foreseeable Loss Double wall (MFL wall) that has six back-to-back conveyor openings located 27′ above.


With brands including Banana Republic, Old Navy, and Athleta, Gap is in more than 90 countries and staffs 130,000 employees internationally.
