Altera Completed Distribution Facility for O’Neal Steel Corp.


Strategic partner, Altera recently completed a 215,000 sf Build to Suit Office and Distribution Facility for O’Neal Corporation, the nation’s largest privately owned metal service provider, in Grand Prairie, Texas. A unique 200,000 square foot of warehouse was designed for six 15 ton cranes to transfer steel across the building’s 770ft length. Each of the 3 bays has 2 cranes that cover 100% of the building. The building floor is elevated 5 feet above grade; with 2 truck drive lanes running through the building on grade.

This design has the truck’s trailer level with the building floor making for easy loading and unloading of steel. The 15,000-square foot office is a mix of large open floor and suites, with amenities including showers and lockers, a large dining area, and a patio. Altera’s close coordination with O’Neal Steel allowed them to be moved in, shipping orders, and producing income within 10 days of receiving occupancy of the facility.
