York Township-based Kinsley Construction Inc. has completed construction of a regional distribution center for Dollar General Corp. in Berks Park 78 off Interstate 78 in Berks County.

Kinsley, which has an office in Wyomissing, was the general contractor on the $70 million construction project. Its portion of the contract was more than $50 million.

The Bethel Township facility is nearly 1 million square feet and is designed to serve more than 1,000 Dollar General stores throughout the Northeast.

The building, which was designed by Nebraska-based architecture firm Leo A Daly, incorporates several energy-saving features such as LED lighting and a computerized energy-management system that automatically controls lighting and interior climate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

It also has a siphonic roof drain system, which siphons water off the roof at a high velocity, according to Kinsley. The design requires fewer drains and eliminates external downspouts. Because all horizontal piping is installed flat, roof slopes can be reduced, which increases the building clear-height and minimizes the excavation needed for underground piping.

Kinsley finished 2013 with $456 million in revenue, according to Business Journal records. That was up $100 million from 2012.
