Coca Cola needed to improve and expand their distribution facilities within Richmond British Columbia. Two of their currently facilities did not meet their needs as far as efficiencies, size and security. They want to put the two locations under one roof in a secure standalone building and be able to move in within three to four months.
Coca Cola engages CBRE who immediately embarked on a comprehensive search for suitable existing, planned, and off-market opportunities. A detailed request for proposal process was under taken of two short listed options.
Due to Coca Cola’s need for a secure facility and proximity to the manufacturing plant we focused on an existing property in South Richmond. The building had a tenant that required relocating to a smaller building in a short timeframe, and minimal improvements were required as the facility had existing security features and all other features met Coca Cola’s requirement.
