“Energy efficient

refrigeration, productive material handling systems & cost effective

construction = profitable cold storage facilities� Food Tech specializes in the planning, engineering and construction of cold storage warehouse/distribution centers for public warehousers, food processors, retailers, wholesalers and third party logistics providers. Your refrigerated facilities play an important role in cold chain management, product quality and overall operational costs. Our emphasis is therefore on ensuring that your building’s insulation system has a positive thermal/vapor barrier seal, that your refrigeration system provides the correct temperatures and that upfront construction costs and day to day maintenance/energy expenses are as low as possible.

“Experienced professionals =

“The right approach”

Facility Planning

There are many ways you can elect to

expand or build your new cold storage facility and each approach has its own pros/cons. At Food Tech, we are flexible and happy to

work in any capacity the best serves the project. Our services can be performed independently or joined together for a turn-key, single source responsibility approach. For the lowest construction costs, highest quality levels and shortest schedule

Master Site Planning

our recommended approach is: • Planning or feasibility study by experienced engineers to realistically determine material handling systems, facility layout, refrigeration load, design requirements, cost and schedule. • Detailed architecture/engineering and bid

packages by experienced engineers. • Competitive bidding of all trades at the

supplier/subcontractor level to eliminate any

Architecture/ Engineering

middlemen or pyramiding of fees which allows us to buy out the project at the lowest prices the market will bear.
