Distribution & Warehouse

DWS4

Location Everett, WA

“Amazon’s DWS4 facility was critical to our organization’s continued operational excellence and growth in the Puget Sound region. Despite a delayed start due to permitting, which pushed our start date into the rainy season, Foushée absorbed the lost time and showed the flexibility required from a general contractor to successfully deliver a building which started behind schedule without compromising our original completion date. Foushée’s personnel was easy to work with and communicative throughout the entire project. I appreciated their ability to work with the City of Everett’s inspectors to open the facility for our use prior to full certificate of occupancy as we worked to finish landscaping and other small items around such a large site. I will certainly recommend Foushée to other development partners as I look forward to working with them on future Amazon Distribution Centers.”
