Fisher Ties Existing to New with Unique Solutions
Third-party logistics and storage providers are constantly looking for ways to meet customer needs through added capacity and efficiencies. Regardless of being in a busy port or the heart of farm country. These needs drove Lineage Logistics to expand their warehouse in the Columbia Basin 120,000 SF. Lineage chose Fisher Construction Group as the design | builder for the project.
While a freezer addition may seem pretty straight forward, Lineage Othello benefited from the unique solutions developed by fisher’s design-build group.
Fisher’s design-build construction team paid careful attention to tying the existing building to the new building. The result was an uninterrupted vapor barrier and assuring the future durability of both freezers.
The new freezer took advantage of the Tyco Quell fire protection system and maximized storage capacity height without increasing the footprint. Fisher’s engineering team addressed the need for additional bracing in the existing freezer. So that it could withstand the snow load that may accumulate in the saddle where the buildings join.
Fisher’s thorough cost comparison studies, it is possible to economically upgrade several systems which served the entire twenty-year-old facility. A new compressor, fire pump and alarm system were installed. Making it possible to operate the entire, now 400,000+ SF plant with the upgraded components. The ammonia system for the addition is supported by six rooftop penthouse evaporators. Significantly saving valuable space within the freezer and making maintenance easier.
Fisher crews self-performed the installation of the insulated metal panel (IMP) walls and the civil and site work, completing the project ahead of schedule and budget.
