ARCOLD the refrigerated facility specialty division of ARCO Design/Build cold storage builders partnered with New England Cold Storage (NECS) to complete the construction of their brand-new cold storage facility that combines the latest technologies with a super-insulated building envelope to minimize energy usage and maximize thermal efficiency.
Located in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, this 120,662 SF cold storage facility includes two (2) large freezer rooms and an ample convertible room that can be used for refrigerated or frozen space. This flexible layout allows NECS to operate three (3) distinct temperature zones and allows for specialized value-add operations such as case or layer selection and flash freezing.
This cold storage construction project included an efficient 65′ deep loading dock with 15 dock doors and vertical levelers, allowing for efficient truck staging, loading, and unloading while minimizing product temperature variations.
By utilizing high-density mobile racking in their two (2) freezer rooms and double-deep racking in the convertible room, NECS can provide approximately 25,000 total pallet positions to their clients.
