Industrial Development

The Keith Corporation has successfully completed over 14 million SF of industrial facilities that range from 22,000 SF up to 1,000,000 SF. TKC focuses on build-to-suit for lease, third-party build-to-suit development services for clients that want to own and single-occupant shell buildings for lease or purchase.

TKC’s experienced team brings a broad perspective and unequalled competence to the entire development process – from site selection and due diligence to design, permitting, financing, construction and integration of machinery & equipment. 

This focus on single-tenant/owner-occupant facilities has enabled our team to deliver projects specifically designed for a wide range of manufacturing and distribution uses, including:

  • Refrigerated food-grade and medical-grade distribution and manufacturing projects
  • High-bay, narrow-aisle warehousing and distribution facilities with super-flat floors
  • 100% air conditioned distribution and manufacturing uses with stringent de-stratification requirements
  • Complex manufacturing buildings integrating paint lines, bridge cranes, process piping and R&D/laboratory space
  • Rail-served facilities

The Keith Corporation strives to incorporate sustainable and energy efficient development practices. Projects for Crate & Barrel and Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) achieved LEED® Silver and LEED® Gold certification respectively making them the first industrial projects in the Carolinas to hit these standards in the New Construction category. In addition, we have been proactive in the recommendation and use of LED lighting, solar installations, water conservation, and energy efficient mechanical units in our projects.
