Size and Description
ReCAP planning began in February 1999. Ground was broken August 2000 for the state-of-the-art book depository style building with steel frame tilt-up concrete walls, floors of "very flat" construction, and steel roof. ReCAP's initial phase consisted of Modules 1-3 for storing items, a film vault, fork lift charging room, a processing area and office area. Also constructed in the initial phase were five receiving docks, two for van access, three for semi truck deliveries. Module 4 came online in 2005. Module 5 opened in March, 2008. Modules 8 and 9 opened the summer of 2013.
The current building footprint is 163,847 square feet. The high-density library shelving Modules 1-4 are each approximately 210 feet long, 70 feet wide and 38 feet high, with 6 aisles and 14,700 square feet each. ReCAP's Module 5 is 232 feet long, 114 feet wide with 10 aisles and 26,450 square feet. Modules 8 and 9 are 232 feet long, 120 feet wide with 12 aisles each and 27,840 square feet each. The modules have no windows. The processing area is 151 feet long by 130 feet wide or 20,736 square feet. The office area is 4,181 square feet. The ReCAP facility is modular by design, so additional shelving modules can be added as needed. The site will allow for the eventual construction amounting to 252,000 square feet of storage space for 37.5 million items.
