GOODMAN LOGISTICS CENTER EL MONTE
Location: 4200-4300 Shirley Avenue, El Monte
Developer: Goodman
Contractor: Oltmans Construction Co.
Architect: HPA, Inc.

Goodman Logistics Center El Monte is a Class-A, LEED-certified development that has provided new, modern logistics space totaling 1,215,340 sf on 55 acres. The two-building logistics campus is located less than one mile from the I-10 and four miles west of the I-605 freeway. The new facility has been constructed with a flexible and sustainable concrete tilt-up design, catering to a range of potential uses well-suited for logistics and e-commerce customers.
The project included the demolition of an industrial building previously occupied by Vons. The challenges successfully overcome included dealing with the clean-up and abatement of the existing building. During demolition, the team recycled 5,800 tons of steel and 700 tons of wood for reuse. 115,000 tons of concrete were crushed and also incorporated for reuse on the site.
Additionally, the project scope also involved the complete demolition, grading, and paving of an existing street with active, operating businesses requiring uninterrupted water, fire water, and electrical services. The project also included the improvement of non-usable area at the adjacent elementary school.
The area, originally overtaken by weeds, was converted into an outdoor classroom.
