This distribution facility includes an ammonia-refrigerated warehouse with a -10°F freezer, a 35°F cooler and 35°F truck loading docks. The facility also includes dry storage, a dry loading dock, a welfare area, a battery-charging station and a truck maintenance garage.
A steel racking system stores pallets up to 41 feet high. Stellar constructed the facility with insulated metal panels, a single-ply membrane roof and a structural steel frame. The project was designed for future expansion.
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.
