    A Customer Success Story- A Temporary Chilled Logistics Building…

    The Challenge;

    To provide a major distribution company with a temporary chilled logistics building.

    A really good job this one, with an interesting problem to solve.

    The client required a temporary building built onto a raised platform on uneven ground. Critically, the platform would have to bear the weight of loaded fork lift trucks. In its self, this not straight forward because of the point loading at the wheels.

    The temperature control range was specified at 20 degrees.

    The Solution;

    We recommended that our Heavy Deck system was used to construct a raised floor. The rest of the structure could then be built off of this to complete the building. Furthermore, the Heavy Deck system used would support fully loaded counter balance trucks meaning there was no compromise in the use.

    The main building was of typical Aluminium framed construction with 70mm PIR insulated wall and roofing panels. Overall, a very solid building with very good thermal values.

    Heat pump AHU’s provided a full one box HVAC solution. The units maintain automatic control over the heating and cooling without the use of fossil fuels on site. Air quality is automatically controlled by C02 sensors which actuate fresh air dampers. Great units that are an effective tool against indoor virus spread.

    The completed building. The ventilation ducts can be seen entering at high level.

    Summary;

    A great project from start to finish. From the Heavy Deck up, a very solid, high quality building was delivered. In addition, the HVAC system provided very reliable and efficient temperature control ensuring that the stored products were kept in optimal condition.

    The building was in operation for 4 years- a very successful and fruitful project for all.
