The Cold Storage Hire Challenge;

Due to a rapidly growing business and major contractual obligations, this client required a quick solution to increase their chilled storage capacity. Having exhausted all other built options, the client approached us to provide an 875m2 building to be located in their car park. The additional space we created was used for the storage of soft fruits and required a holding temperature of 2 degrees at all times. As with all raw food storage areas, a high-quality safe finish was required.

The Temporary Cold Storage Solution

Our team recommended an aluminium framed building with an inflatable roof and 100mm PIR wall panels for increased efficiency. These buildings are held in stock and can be delivered and erected quickly. Although not completely flat, the car park was deemed as suitable for a high-quality resin floor without the use of our Heavy Deck flooring option, saving both time and costs.

Cooling was provided by five ACR LT50 low-temperature AHU hire units and four chillers with a combined capacity of 320kw. As with all our projects, we fitted multiple separate cooling systems into the cold stores to provide redundancy ensuring that any failures would have no negative impact on the store’s usage.
