Johnson & Johnson, a world leader in consumer health products, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and biologics, teamed with LJC and Clayco to design and build their new Midwest distribution center. The design of this building, which was the first in the new 70 West Commerce Center park, set the standard for all future facilities in the park. The facility was honored with LEED Gold Certification due to the collaboration of the design team and the commitment Johnson & Johnson placed on sustainability and the environment.
The facility design incorporates tilt-up concrete construction, energy-efficient mechanical and electrical systems, 100% emergency backup power, and vertical lift dock levelers. The 30,000 SF main office area is detailed with energy-efficient glazing, and the entry is identified with a composite metal canopy.
