Industrial Cold Storage Facility
Under a tight winter work schedule, GDI Construction successfully built a state-of-the-art cold storage facility. This 160,000 square foot project required the design, fabrication, and erection of 5 penthouse evaporators, as well as installation of over a million pounds of racking systems, and other demanding construction requirements. The project also called for an under-floor warming system designed to recover heat from the refrigeration system and use it to prevent interior columns and floors from shifting due to the constant cold temperatures.
I would personally wish to thank you for all the time and effort you put forth for the new build-to-suit facility for Atlas Cold Storage in Pendleton, Indiana. The facility turnover on June 1, 2006 was a great success thanks to everyone’s involvement and commitment.
The successful completion of this highly specialized facility was accomplished only through the excellence and commitment of an outstanding group of professionals. This team held steady and worked together from the beginning of the project’s initial conceptual stage, through negotiations, to construction through the middle of winter, final punch list walk-through to the first products shipping out to its final destination.
First Industrial looks forward to many more productive conversations and please know that this is a relationship that will remain strong for many years to come.
