TriAxis to Construct 1 Million Square Foot Building for Amazon

We are extremely proud to announce that we were recently awarded the construction management contract by Blackwood Partners for the new 1 million square foot building to accommodate the new Amazon Fulfillment Centre in Caledon, Ontario.

The new warehouse and distribution facility to be constructed for the world’s largest on-line retailer will be located approximately 45 minutes northwest of Toronto on Coleraine Drive & George Bolton Parkway in Bolton, Ontario.

The building dimensions are approximately 623 feet by 1,623 feet with a clear interior height of 40′.  This massive building is approximately ½ km wide with 23 acres of floor area which is equivalent to the size of approximately 20 football fields. The 52-acre site includes 1,500 parking spaces and can accommodate 277 trailers and 88 loading spaces.

We started construction on the site in early August 2018 and the facility is scheduled to open by the end of 2019.  The new Amazon Fulfillment Centre will bring 800 new full-time jobs to the Caledon area where employees will pick, pack, and ship small items to customers such as toys, books and electronics.
