Coldstore and composite panel specialist ISD Solutions has completed a second coldstore for logistics provider Kuehne + Nagel.

The £635,000 contract involved the construction of a new coldstore building providing 3,860 sq m of floor space operating at a temperature of minus 25 degrees at Kuehne + Nagel's Greenford site in north west London.
ISD was responsible for the design and installation of the coldstore box and associated areas. These included loading docks together with a cage storage area and a battery re-charge space for forklift trucks. In total some 7,400 sq m of Kingspan KS1100CS panels were specified and installed to form the coldstore, together with 3,860 sq m of floor insulation. Union Industries Eiger coldstore traffic doors were also procured and installed as part of ISD’s package.

Nine bespoke coldstore specification personnel doors, viewing windows plus all associated thresholds and powder coated galvanised trims were designed and manufactured at ISD in Gloucester.

ISD was able to complete the main installation inside a five-week period, allowing the concrete floor to be poured a week before the Christmas 2016 shutdown so that it could cure over the holiday period. This enabled lead contractor JJL Design and Build to complete and hand over the new  coldstore ahead of schedule. 

Richard Bowden, Director Cold Stores and Special Projects, said: “The combination of our strong supplier relationships together with in-house design and manufacturing ensured we could deliver on time and in budget. We are delighted to be continuing our relationship with JJL and leading logistics companies like Kuehne + Nagel.”

The project at Greenford follows a similar installation for the logistics company at Reading, Berkshire.
