Ware Malcomb Announces Construction is Complete on Pell Circle in Sacramento, California

Ware Malcomb Provided Civil Engineering, Architecture and Interior Design Services

PLEASANTON, Calif. (Nov. 14, 2023) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced that construction is complete on Pell Circle, a build-to-suit industrial warehouse located at 3755 Pell Circle, Sacramento, California. Ware Malcomb provided civil engineering, architecture and interior design services for the 92,000 square footuilding, owned by Mainline Sales, Inc.

The single-story, concrete tilt-up industrial facility features a hybrid panelized roof, warehouse and distribution spaces, and can accommodate two 3,600 square-foot office spaces.

“We had great collaboration with all of the project partners to design a facility to best fit Mainline’s needs,” said Jim Terry, Principal for Ware Malcomb. “Mainline uses the entire facility for its business purposes and the southern-most offices were designed and crafted for employees. The facility is designed with flexibility in mind to accommodate future business needs.”

Ware Malcomb’s civil engineering team partnered with Mainline Sales, Inc. to determine if the facility should be built one foot above the flood plain or to flood-proof the building. They opted for flood protection, which required a complete Flood Operation Manual – a new requirement of the City of Sacramento. During the planning stage, the City of Sacramento adopted an updated FEMA flood map, which put the project directly into a 200-year flood plain. This presented an unusual challenge that required diligent collaboration and perseverance among all parties.

“In the end, we raised the entire site two-and-a-half feet,” said Michael Murphy, Director, Civil Engineering for Ware Malcomb. “It was an incredible challenge, due to the size of the site, but one we gladly accepted. Our team partnered with the city to meet FEMA guidelines and requirements. We expect that Mainline Sales will enjoy many successful years on this site.”

General contracting services for the project were provided by KPRS Construction Services. Mainline Sales, Inc. is a full-service manufacturer’s representative, serving the states of California, Nevada, Arizona, and Hawaii.
