TDS Automotive Logistics Centre

Location: Windsor, ON
Size: 147,000 Sq. Ft.


This integrated logistics and container management centre was specifically designed to meet the goals of DaimlerChrysler and will handle parts for approximately 318,000 vehicles per year. The custom-designed facility consisting of more than 147,000 square feet features a truck-loading dock, snow-melting systems and 96 hydraulic loading docks to ensure “just-in-time” delivery. The plant is constructed with structural steel framing providing 60-foot bays throughout. The roof structure is open web steel joists with metal deck. The exterior envelope of the plant is enclosed with pre-finished insulated metal siding and a single-ply EPDM roofing membrane that is ballasted. The front singlestorey office was designed with expansion in mind and has a second-storey mezzanine that can be easily converted into office space. The facility’s front façade consists of painted architectural concrete masonry with accent bands, pre-finished metal siding parapet, and punched clear anodized aluminum framed windows.
