BRR is well-versed in completing complex industrial and fulfillment projects for our clients. Our industrial team recognizes that fulfillment and warehouse projects require extensive attention to detail, and they may require ASRS systems or other technologies to efficiently fill the needs of their customers.
Our resume includes projects such as new distribution/fulfillment centers to the renovation or expansion of existing facilities. We’ve worked with a variety of clients from large, national retailers to grocers and manufacturers on elevating the employee experience inside these facilities and also leveraging design to bring them up to date.

Our Approach to Industrial Projects
We work with industrial owners from around the country to improve operations and achieve long-term success through an up-to-date facility. We address every industrial facility separately, learning the needs of both the owner and the employee, and implementing designs that fully address them.

+ Is it possible to expand?
+ Is it possible to build vertically?
+ What materials can we choose to extend the building’s life?
+ Are there ways to support Net Zero mandates?

Our design team continues to push design concepts beyond the traditional ‘white box’ design of a warehouse.

With BRR’s long-standing relationship with Walmart, our team was selected as the architect of record for the company’s next-generation fulfillment center located outside of Chicago, IL.

For the remodel of this distribution center, BRR was asked to introduce new design concepts and brand initiatives into the facility. This space is also being used to test design options for the possibility to incorporate aspects into other locations.
