Titan Motorsports New Location Update 2

May 14th, 2009 1 comment

Took a few moments to head to the shop today and spec a few more last minute details. There was quite a bit of progress overall and things are looking to be on track.

This picture was taken from the second floor where we have a double door access allowing heavy equipment and furniture to be easily moved using a forklift. This access will be locked from the outside to prevent anyone from falling from the sky (although I would love to put a BLOB in like the Fantasy Factory, but don’t think management would approve).

We recently got the warehouse side of the floors coated, I spent quite a bit of time making sure the best products where used to ensure that these floors would last. The contractor we hired came out and shot-peened the entire floor, before applying a wet epoxy coat that was later followed up by a polyurethane floor. If you look at the picture above you can see the raw concrete to the left, the raw concrete after being shot-peened, and finally the right is the finished flooring. The shop side will be coated next week after the pallet racking and warehouse shelves are setup and the floor on that side can be cleared.

Now that the floor has a fresh coating to protect the concrete, our shelving systems have begun being installed. The warehouse side will feature both shelving as pictured, and pallet racking for larger shipments, secured behind a safety fence. With more warehouse space we will now be able to expand our current product lines stocked and inventory levels to help better serve our customers.

As a result of ADA guidelines, we had to add an elevator for 2nd floor access for those with disabilities that would prevent them from using the stairs.

Our second floor is where our support staff and book keeping will be located, at this point only the floor and ceiling tiles remain for completion.

Titan Motorsports New Location Construction Update

May 5th, 2009 1 comment

Anyone who has been to our current location at Goldenrod and 50 will be the first to tell you that we outgrew this space many moons ago. The new building was purchased over a year ago, however permitting and construction delays have pushed our anticipated move back many times now. Fortunately our current progress is on track and we should be moving into this beautiful 25,000sq/ft facility in the next 1-2 months. Our entire operation will now be located under one roof with plenty of room for future expansion.

Here are some recent snapshots showing the progress of our build out at the new Boggy Creek location near Orlando International Airport. We’ve finally hit the home stretch and are now in the final finish work stages, if all goes as planned we should be moving in less than 45 days. I will post more picture updates as the date draws near and we hit new construction milestones.
