Southlink Logistics Center is one of the largest industrial developments in Dallas. Developed by Hines and designed by GSR Andrade Architects, Inc., the 1,040,000 square-foot industrial complex is located on Cleveland Road south of Interstate 20.

Now an Amazon fulfillment center, this impressive industrial building uses a Mifab HydroMax® siphonic roof drain system. The building stands 50’ in height and features 184 overhead doors, just over 500 parking spaces, a 1,612-square-foot office area and an overall interior clearance of 40’ – made possible using the overhead run-flat pipes from Mifab HydroMax®.

Original Gravity Scheme

The building had 62no. internal roof drains.

Pipework could not pitch at high level and keep sufficient clearance heights.

The gravity scheme therefore had 12” rainwater pipes dropping to below grade and running
individually under building floor. 13,600 ft of trenching with 12” drainage below grade was required.

18,000 ft of 12” pipework in total.

Gravity Scheme

HydroMax® Solution

Completely Flat Pipe at High level runs at high level keeping above minimum clearance required to perimeter.
32 x 4 drains systems run flat at high level
Zero trenching and civils drainage – saving 13,600 ft of trenching.
Smaller 10” diameter pipes and only 13,000ft pipework saving 5,000 ft of pipes.

Developer advised they saved $1,700,000.
