(Newswire.net — July 30, 2015) Casa Grande, Az –PhoenixMart advances major foundation construction today at its 585-acre site in Casa Grande, Ariz. by pouring what will eventually be 780 concrete footings across 1.5 million-square-feet. Each footing ranges in size from 7’ x 7’ to the largest 25’ x 25’, requiring an estimated 650 cement trucks to complete the footings.
Concrete pouring is currently taking place 5 days a week. Approximately 100 of the 780 footings have been completed on-site. The final foundation of the PhoenixMart global commerce center will cover an area roughly the size of 26 football fields once completed.
Layton Construction of Phoenix, Ariz. is the general contractor for the project and completion of construction is anticipated during the middle of 2016.
“PhoenixMart is the most comprehensive business venue in the Western hemisphere,” states PhoenixMart Chief Operating Officer Steve Gardner. “Over 1,700 tenant suites will be leased at our Casa Grande location by the time we open our doors in 2016, so our physical foundation has to match the size and scope of our company’s vision, which is to alleviate our tenants from the complexity and higher costs of traditional go-to-market strategies.”
