    Dollar General Distribution Center in Bessemer, Alabama by LEO A DALY.

A million-foot campus on 106 acres in Bessemer, Ala., that includes six buildings: a dry storage warehouse, administrative office and employee hub, a dispatch office and truck maintenance facility, a receiving truck concourse guardhouse, a shipping truck concourse guardhouse, and a pump house and fire protection reservoir. The employee hub, designed to facilitate employee interaction, safety, and comfort, includes roomy locker rooms and restrooms, a vending area with ample food-heating capabilities, 20 commercial-grade refrigerators, and a 600-seat cafeteria/break room with a porch that accommodates gas grilling. Southern light—diffused via translucent glass windows—endows the room with a gently sunny and always comfortable ambiance.
