Peerless Clothing Distribution Center, St. Albans, VT

Peerless Clothing manufactures men’s suits in Montreal, Quebec and overseas. They have their US distribution facility in the St. Albans Town Industrial Park. CCE has been involved with their facility since 1998. Four major buildings have been constructed along with associated parking lots, utilities and other site improvements. Peerless Clothing now has over 400 employees located at the St. Albans distribution center.

A major warehouse addition was designed by Cross Consulting Engineers in 1998 and constructed in 1999. This 40,000 SF warehouse is 48 feet in height and contains several levels of racking systems, including a mechanized sorting machine for men’s suits. In 2005, Peerless Clothing had again outgrown their facility and commissioned the design of a new 80,000 SF warehouse facility. This $11 million facility is 50 feet high, contains four levels of racking systems, 20 loading docks and a major employee parking area and truck maneuvering area. This project included an overhead walkway 200 feet in length to connect buildings. CCE, in conjunction with mechanical and electrical subconsultants, performed all of the civil engineering, architectural and structural engineering design associated with both projects.

In 2005, Peerless Clothing commissioned a third expansion consisting of a 72,000 square foot addition, fifty feet in height. In 2016, their latest expansion included a 90,000 square feet addition, sixty-five feet high. Currently, the distribution center is 282,000 square feet in size with 896,000 square feet of mezzanine space.

Peerless Clothing is currently in construction of their latest expansion, which is scheduled for completion in 2019. CCE is the project manager, architect, civil engineer, and structural engineer for this project, and aquired all permits.

Village Townhomes, St. Albans, VT

The Village at Franklin Park is a high end senior housing facility consisting of 96 units in the Town of St. Albans. This project is located on an abandoned farm adjacent to Interstate 89 and presented some unique permitting issues. Cross Consulting Engineers was retained by GSD Development to design and permit this project. The design is unique and consists of a village like layout with compact urban design, park like atmosphere in the center, small setbacks to buildings and boundaries and short driveways. Over thirty of the units have been constructed and more are being constructed each year.

Our services included civil engineering design, boundary surveys, stormwater management, street design, landscaping, erosion control and street lighting. This project included an involved Act 250 Land Use Permit process and extensive work to comply with the Vermont  Common Interest Ownership Act through the use of footprint lots.

This attractive project is highly visible from Interstate 89 but is set back significantly from the highway to provide a positive viewing experience by travelers along the Interstate. This project is arguably the most attractive residential housing project in Franklin County.
