See how we delivered a temporary chilled logistics building for a major food distribution company. Constructed on our Heavy Deck system for a raised level.
A Major Chilled Logistics Operation
Food and other Perishable Products
Temporary Building with Temperature Control
750kw Low temperature cooling system
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.
We recommended that our Heavy Deck system was used to construct a raised floor. When completed, the rest of the structure could then be built off this base to complete the building.
Additionally, 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.
Ventilation and temperature control was provided by Trane IH heat pumps. These units maintain automatic control over the heating and cooling without the use of fossil fuels on site. They also feature C02 sensors which automatically control air quality by activating fresh air dampers. Great units that are an effective tool against indoor virus spread.
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.
This temporary chilled logistics building was in operation for 4 years- a very successful and fruitful project for all.
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.
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.
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.
