Case Study: Everest Industries perfectly executes a warehouse project for Nahar Industrial Enterprises

One of the many large projects executed by Everest Industries is a warehouse building for Nahar Industrial Enterprises, Jaipur, Rajasthan. The building is an example of a perfectly executed warehouse building. The facility is going to be used by India’s leading e-commerce giant as a distribution center.

Nahar Industrial Enterprises is a top textile manufacturer in the country with other businesses under its group. The company planned to build a warehouse for its business arm that is in the warehouse business.

Geometry

The Warehouse has an area of over 3.5 lakh sq ft. The width of the building is more than 130-m and it required large unobstructed spaces for the movement of forklifts to transport goods. Everest designed a multi-span frame with optimum column spacing to achieve the layout requirements. Jack Portals and Jack beams were provided to reduce interior columns for unhindered space required for material movement inside the building.

Architectural features

The building has a mezzanine area along its length. The flooring was provided using concrete over the deck sheet to bear human and material loads. Shear studs were provided for non-composite joists for lighter sections.

The customer was very particular about leakage, hence Everest decided to use the latest SS470 Standing Seam roofing profile which is the latest addition to its product offerings. The leakproof roof was provided in the building for water tightness and longer roof life. Appropriate rainfall Intensity data was collected and adequate water drainage systems were designed so as to offerseamless working for the end user of the structure. 

Roof monitors and s-type louvers were provided to ensure ventilation as per theair changes required by the users.

Uniqueness

The building has future expansion at the end wall which called for careful designing of the end wall columns and secondary systems, including wall cladding since the customer wanted wall cladding and columns to be removed to pave way for expansion and create more space. The building’s length is more than 200-m, so, designing the structure to take care of thermal expansion was necessary.

The building had to be designed to house an array of pipe racks, sprinkler systems and cable trays. Adequate design precautions were taken to ensure the desired locations are provided with Brackets/ Slotted holes to allow suspending of the supports of these structures.

Challenges 

The building had two important aspects that remain the concern of all customers. Economical solutions without foregoing the requirements of designs and material specifications and time of construction. Since the project had a very short timeline, the design and release of the drawings had to take place on a very tight schedule. The material dispatch had to follow the erection sequence which required accurate planning.

Everest used two Standing Seam roll formers in tandem to ensure roof sheet laying in record timelines and with strict adherence to safe practices. Any error would cost the company its plans of commencing operations on time.

In Conclusion 

Economy and timeline were key points and the team of Everest Industries maturely handled the situation by conducting multiple meetings and monitoring day-by-day progress as desired and thus resulting in the expected positive outcome for all stakeholders of this project.
