Dillion’s – Shawnee
Contract Amount: $3,600,000
Total Square Footage: 58,434
Store 78 in Shawnee was the first in a growing series of projects that MGCI is performing for Dillons Food Stores – a Division of The Kroger Co. Despite permit delays, the “ice storm” of 2002 and losing three of the first five months of the Construction Schedule due to inclement weather, Merit was still able to complete the project ahead of schedule and the store opened three weeks early. A unique feature of this facility was the incorporation of an integral colored concrete slab for the final Sales floor finish, which required all the overhead mechanical and electrical work be completed prior to the placement of the slabs, and prevented most of the finish work – drywall, tile, décor, refrigeration equipment, etc. – from being installed until the last 45 days of the project.
Major Building Features:
- Integral colored floor slabs, including non-stop finish in Produce
- Thick-set porcelain tile in all wet areas
- Full service Floral, Deli, Bakery, Chinese Kitchen and Pharmacy with Drive-up
