Metal Buildings for Refrigerated Warehouses

Metal Buildings for Refrigerated Warehouses

Metal buildings have many uses one of which is refrigerated warehouses. Late in 2009  we completed a metal building for refrigerated warehousing at a food processing plant in Leesburg Florida.

The insulation for the refrigeration units was provided by six inch thick insulated metal panels. There was an existing steel bar joist roof structure that was to be removed and a new steel bar joist roof system installed in place of the old. The new roof needed to be raised to accommodate the new ceiling mounted refrigeration units.

This meant that the entire supporting structure, the columns and beams upon which the old roof structure rested had to removed and the new structural elements raised to meet the new required ceiling height.

This plant was a twenty four hour a day, seven day a week and 365 days a year operation. The additional head room height was need not only for the  large refrigeration units but for the forklifts and operators as well. So our job was to get this project underway and completed on time while men and machine were operating below the work areas.This sometimes created work stop orders that slowed the progress. The slowed progress created extended work times to maintain the projected project completion time.

Next to refrigerated area of the plant was a non refrigerated area the openings through which the forklifts passed were equipped with automatic, high speed, overhead, insulated doors.

The challenged provided by this project was a two headed monster finish the job on time and without injury. Not easy under the circumstances.
