Frio Cold Storage Overview

  • KDW is building a cold storage facility that includes 46,076 sq. ft. of -10F cold storage that will hold more than 5,600 pallet positions in high-pile racking on an insulated slab protected by a Quell Fire Sprinkler system.
  • The FM approved Quell Fire Sprinkler system that provides the same protection as other pre-action systems without the need for in-rack fire protection in cold storage warehouses.
  • 2,345 sq. ft. of the three-story office is set aside for the mechanical room to grant the full use of the cold storage footprint using a low charge ammonia/CO2 system that is more efficient and environmentally friendly versus conventional refrigerant systems.
  • 1,948 sq. ft. of the three-story office foundation is elevated to two ft. above the floodway on a structural slab to meet the Harris County and City of Houston Flood management office requirements.
  • 80,922 sq. ft. of paving allows for ample parking and refrigerated truck access to the 3.9 acre site.

We could not have picked a better partner, to help us in establishing a productive plant in SW Houston. KDW met with us several times, to develop an understanding of our needs. Once understood, they incorporated our proven program with their local knowledge of Municipality, available Materials, Sub Contractors, and other Project Management Guidance.

LKQ Corporation

In 2013 WIKA Process Solutions LP and GAYESCO INTERNATIONAL LCC started working with the KDW team to design & build our brand new manufacturing facility on a 13 acre lot in the Pasadena ship channel area. From start (concept & initial renderings) to finish (January 2015 moving in) the KDW team supported us in every step of the way.

The work and craftsmanship executed by the KDW team is truly inspiring and remarkable.They have a way of making what seems nearly impossible, possible and turning your dream into a reality. Their ability to adapt and meet strict deadlines will astonish you. They were an integral part to the true success of our construction phase and allowed us to become the Premier Water Park in Austin.

When Goya realized the need for a large facility capable of heavy production, we knew KDW would be our designs/builder and Houston would be our home. This is our second project in 6 years with KDW and the Goya team considers the KDW team part of our extended family."

Working with KDW to build our state of the art High Bay/Heavy Lift Fabrication Shop was nothing short of pleasurable and professional.  Their knowledge of construction techniques is amazing and every sub-contractor that was used did impeccable work. We could not have chosen a more competent General Contractor on our million dollar expansion project.
