Public Refrigerated Warehouse

Public Refrigerated Warehouses Hold Heavy Responsibilities—From Achieving the Utmost Efficiency to Meeting High Food Safety Standards

The refrigeration realm isn’t what it used to be. With recent revisions to building codes and increases in base utility costs, energy efficiency has never been more top-of-mind for public refrigerated warehouse owners and operators than it is right now. Regulatory compliance is key, and Stellar's team of experts is meticulous in making sure our clients' facilities are covered—all while maintaining stringent food safety standards.

Our team ensures the layout of the facility delivers effective operations so our public refrigerated warehouse clients can keep operating costs low, while keeping efficiencies high. This includes strategic adjacencies or placements of coolers, freezers and support areas in addition to planning ahead for expandability.

Over the past 10 years, we’ve designed and built more than 10 million square feet of public refrigerated warehouse space. For decades, industry leaders such as United States Cold Storage and Burris Logistics have trusted their public refrigerated warehouses in our hands.

Thanks to Stellar’s turnkey design-build solutions that maximize efficiency and food safety, our public refrigerated warehouse clients are offered a compressed design and construction phase, allowing for a quicker startup so they can be confident in our on-budget, on-time delivery.

Stellar treats our company like we are one of their largest customers, even though we know we’re not. They are open, honest and always supportive of our needs. This approach has fostered a true partnership between our two companies over the years.

We also value the fact that Stellar offers such a wide range of expertise under one roof, from design to construction. Stellar offers expertise in the areas of thermal design and installation, refrigeration design and installation, electrical, civil and structural design, among others. They are a true one-stop shop.

Dot Foods has partnered with Stellar for more than 10 years on a variety of projects across the country. We have done several projects with Stellar. Some are better than others. At the end of the day, Stellar always steps up to the plate to make sure things are done right. They have consistently completed projects on time and under budget.

Stellar’s teams are reliable – instead of dealing with new faces on every project, we work with the same people who understand our business and how we do things. This stability, across both project management and engineering, saves us considerable time and effort, as we don’t have to educate them on our processes on each new project. It’s a great combination – a partner who is easy to work with, but also focused on quality and value.

Stellar’s professionals have the experience, knowledge and skill sets necessary to properly design and execute large projects effectively.
