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.

KDW built our new shop addition. They helped me with the Design and planning of the build. They did a wonderful job from the beginning to the end. I would highly recommend KDW and Rolf for any construction needs. They are a top notch company and I am proud to tell people who built our building and very proud of our new shop.

People make the company.  The folks at KDW are talented, professional, friendly, and second to none.  In spite of the full book of business they keep, I never once felt like my calls were ignored, rushed, or unimportant.  Architects, project managers, superintendents.....they were all top-notch.  Our design/build experience with KDW exceeded all our expectations.
