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.

Simons Under construction  |  580,000 sf
Contract delivery :
Fixed Price
The construction of Simons new 40' high distribution facility in Quebec City started in May 2018. It will include 470,000 s.f. of warehouse, 47 shipping and receiving doors along with an attached 110,000 s.f. office facility.
Kraft Foods 2005  |  530,000 sf
Contract delivery :
Construction Management
This is a new distribution and product mixing center for Kraft Canada. All products manufactured within 100 km of Montreal are shipped directly to this facility for eventual distribution across North America. Total building size is 530,000 square feet, 30'-0" clear, including 50'-0" bays, with refrigerated and air conditioned warehouse areas. The project was designed and built in a period of less than 8 months. As a result of the weak clay soils available, piled foundations and a drained construction platform with overbuilt access roads were required. Site logistics and the construction schedule were further complicated by the fact that the foundation work occurred in the early spring season. The slab design allows for heavy floor loading and includes features such as non-corrosive metallic hardener, special floor sealers and fully filled sawcuts. The shipping and receiving docks consist of continuous depressed trenches with vertical lift levelers, with all dock equipment, overhead doors, and dock lifts fully automated and integrally connected.

The project consists of 2 buildings, sitting on approximately 1,000,000 sf of land, with exterior envelopes consisting of precast concrete, curtain wall and prefabricated insulated metal panels. The careful selection of materials for the exterior wall was primarily based on the period during the year in which the work was to be executed. The sitework included large parking areas, loading docks and roads circulating on the air side to transport cargo to and from aircraft. Over 60,000 sf of administrative areas were fit up for tenants to manage the cargo, including special provisions for conveyors, scales, specialized equipment and cold rooms.
