Arizona’s booming construction industry recently added another impressive building in the West Valley. Sun State Builders has completed a multi-tenant office/warehouse spec building for Caprock Development at 6950 West Buckeye Road in Phoenix. “This is the sixth of eight projects Sun State will have built for them,” says Sun State Vice President/Partner Andrea Piering.
The $6 million project took eight months to complete. The117,520 square-foot building sits on a 5.85-acre lot.
According to Piering, the most challenging aspect of the project involved the street infrastructure and the zero-lot-line construction along the west property line. “Sun State had to coordinate with SRP to remove their power poles that lined the street.”
For the Caprock Development project, Sun State used a handful of subcontractors, including Ace Asphalt, Mundall Trucking, Riggs Companies, RPC Plumbing, and Reynolds Electric.
Piering says that Riggs Companies used a track skid steer equipped with full grade controls to prep their subgrade. “As concrete ready-mix was delivered in the middle of the night, Riggs used a concrete leveling machine also equipped with a laser level, making for an easier job for finishers,” she says.
