Cold Storage Design and Construction

Our experienced project managers and owners have witnessed the evolution of cold storage construction techniques since the 1960's. Obviously, we have moved forward with continual improvement to keep our clients apprised with the latest technology and insulation materials.

Today, we specify state of the art materials for each client based on the actual need of the end user. We use criteria such as: desired temperature of the stored product, humidity requirements, in-product temperature, fire-resistant construction, concrete protection, under-floor heat, door management, and many more designs that can be tailored to each client's needs.

Insulated panel construction offers many options for the end users, whether it is cold storage or a refrigerated processing room.
