O'Neal provided a number of services to Wal-Mart for the material storage and handling retrofit of this 1.7 million-square-foot distribution facility.

This major facility upgrade involved the replacement of racks, conveyors, and a slat shoe sorter as well as the relocation of a tilt-tray sorter. O'Neal provided technical expertise for the structural and fire protection modifications necessary to support the new installations and the electrical and mechanical support required for the new material handling systems. The systems installed at the site included both new and relocated equipment.

O'Neal also acted as the owners representative for the project, providing project management services to coordinate the activities of the subcontractors and vendors. These services included facilitating weekly project coordination meetings and weekly schedule updates.

A project collaboration web-site was used to communicate with the team. The website included all schedule revisions, meeting minutes, a needs list, vendor drawings and consolidated arrangements.
