Developed by Crawford Hoying, the 171,000-square-foot cold storage facility provides a crucial link in the regional logistics infrastructure. The facility uses a state-of-the-art refrigeration system with onboard power monitoring for energy efficiency. Claypool Electric provided the design-build expertise for the electrical service entrance to pre-packed electrical and refrigeration equipment.
This project consists of approximately 135,000 square feet of freezer space at roughly -11 degrees along with a 36,000 square foot cold dock area that will be maintained to 32 degrees and contains 29 truck docks for loading/unloading of frozen goods. The Cold Environment had unique LED aisle lighting and power requirements.
Underground electrical was performed over the fall of 2021. Work is underway now on overhead rough-in activities in the 55’ areas of the ceilings. Construction of the facility was delayed over the winter due to weather. The project is scheduled to be complete in July, 2022.
