To construct a temporary chilled building for a food packaging operation.
Chilled Logistic Operation
Temporary Chilled Building
600kw cooling- 10x 50kw LT AHUs
A great job this one.
We were approached to offer a rapid solution for a chilled packing area. Large in size, and to be built within an existing warehouse, the area was to be used for chilled storage and packing of box meals.
A very tight schedule of 3 weeks to completion was required to meet a contract start date. With this in mind, a rapidly built structure and cooling system was required. The proposed contract duration was 35 weeks with costed options for extension.
After initial meetings and discussions, an insulated 25x100mt structure was proposed with a 600kw glycol cooling system. A modular Aluminium framed structure was fitted.
Supplied flat packed, the building was assembled on-site. Superior insulation was achieved with 80mm PIR wall panels and inflatable membrane roof. For rapid installation, a modular cooling system was fitted with 3 external glycol chillers and 10 internal 50kw low temperature AHU’s. A rubber hosing system with Camloc connectors was used for glycol distribution.
In the photo, construction of the building can be seen. The Aluminium support beams are assembled on site and lifted/ fixed into position. Following-up behind, the wall and roof panels are then installed. Built in 5mt bays, the building can be extended to any size.
We really love jobs like this.
From initial customer contact to hand over, delivery was achieved in under 5 weeks. All the customers requirements were met and they were able to start operations on-time. It really shows what can be achieved when a motivated customer meets a “can do” contractor.
The project to date has been in operation for 3 months. Modifications have been made internally to the building, with areas partitioned to suite ongoing needs. Another key advantage to this temporary solution.

Fitted their own lifting frames, the AHU’s are designed to be portable. Significantly, for rapid install, they include a controller and glycol cooling valve.

A really nice temporary chilled storage project. This fruit storage warehouse was finished to a high specification and has been contracted initially for 2 years.
To provide a major distribution company with a temporary chilled logistics building. A really good job this one, with an interesting problem to solve.
Cold storage is especially tricky to maintain in readiness for the six or seven weeks of the year when you really need it. Renting equipment when you really need it makes business sense.
ACR were very proud to have been chosen to carry out this strategic project for Shetland Island Council. This project was a slow burner from the-off, with multiple visits to the Island, many options were discussed until the final solution was arrived at.
