As consumers have grown more comfortable with online shopping and their expectations relating to delivery times and convenience have climbed, warehouse and distribution centers have been steadily growing in importance across the country. However, when stay at home orders went into place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for online shopping skyrocketed, causing retailers and grocers alike to expand their warehouse capabilities. As we witness this paradigm shift in consumer behavior, these once unsophisticated “boxes” are becoming dynamic spaces that require the infrastructure to support smart systems and the flexibility to meet the needs of tomorrow’s customers. In this webinar, experts across disciplines will discuss how building systems, including mechanical, plumbing, electrical and technology infrastructure, refrigeration, and fire protection, are impacting today’s warehouses and what conversations and considerations are critical for successful warehouse design.
