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 and 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.

Their expertise and experience makes it easy to make the necessary decisions to get the job done and deliver on time the best results possible – the perfect building to grow our business!

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.

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.
