Projects | Industrial Buildings

We build warehouses, distribution centers, cold storage facilities, transportation/logistics facilities, heavy industry factories and foundries for a variety of industrial clients, ranging from manufacturers of consumer products through to metals recyclers. The volume of industrial construction we do – amounting to some two hundred buildings over the past decade and generating over two million square feet of new industrial space every year – places Reliance among the top contractors in North America in this market.

Recently, given the scarcity of new land in developing metropolises and the constant increasing volume of imports from the far east, the redevelopment and modernization of existing industrial facilities and brown sites to today’s marketable standards, has become a niche market in which we have excelled.
