Ground has been broken on an expansion that is expected to increase the size of Coach's distribution facility in Jacksonville, Fla., to 850,000 square feet when completed in September 2008. Coach, based in New York City, markets men's and women's accessories and gifts worldwide. Jacksonville is the site of Coach's only distribution center and customer service center.
Stellar, a Jacksonville-based design, engineering, construction and mechanical services firm, will design, build and use sustainable or "green" building practices and materials for the expansion.
Stellar constructed the original building and provided design/build services for all expansions.
"We're proud to have worked with Coach for such a long time," says Mike Netting, Stellar divisional vice president of distribution facility services. "It's a great compliment that they've asked us again to design and build these new facilities."
