IMPACT Strategies completes construction of new U-Haul U-Box Warehouse Facility

IMPACT Strategies, Inc. recently announced the completion of its work on the new U-Haul® U-Box® Warehouse Facility in Springfield, Ill. at 3653 Octavius Via. Despite recent inclement winter weather, IMPACT was able to complete the building for occupancy as of the end of January – the required time for move in by U-Haul.

With this completion, IMPACT has provided U-Haul with its largest U-Box warehouse facilities to date, sitting at 26,000 square feet, with the capacity to store more than 1,500 U- Box containers. These U-Box containers provide consumers with an easy, efficient, and secure way to ship and store belongings.

The structure of this facility consists of a pre-engineered metal building manufactured by Chief Industries. For the building exterior, IMPACT utilized insulated metal panels (IMP) which are known for their superior thermal properties, design flexibility and fast installation time.

Though this marks the first completed project with U-Haul, IMPACT is well underway with two additional U-Haul projects – a five-story facility in Champaign, Ill., and two-building complex in Wentzville, Mo. All three projects will total 290,306 square feet of new facilities for U-Haul, the industry leader in DIY moving since 1945.

IMPACT Strategies served as the general contractor in Springfield, Ill. with TR,i Architects as the architect-of-record for the project. With this completed warehousing facility, IMPACT continues to expand its expertise in its warehousing and distribution market experience.

“We are honored to complete our first project with U-Haul and excited to continue our valued relationship with two more locations currently in progress” said Mark Hinrichs, president at IMPACT Strategies. “We are grateful to have obtained and retain their continued role as a trusted advisor throughout the entire design and construction process.”
