ISD cold storage solutions for Waitrose

Gloucester, UK:  ISD Solutions has completed 25 cold store projects for Waitrose branches and e-commerce centres during 2013 alone and will complete another 30 projects during 2014, including shops in Locks Heath in Fareham, Malmesbury, Portman Square, King’s Cross Railway Station, and John Lewis Southampton.

ISD Solutions achieved nominated contractor status in 2009 for Waitrose. The scope of work varies, and for ‘core’ Waitrose stores this normally involves the construction of freezer rooms with temperatures down to minus 28 degrees, together with meat and dairy chillers and then cold storage for fruit and vegetables.

The rooms are consJohn Lewis  Foodhall 7tructed in 100mm high-density PIR rigid thermal insulation panels, with bespoke sliding doors to reduce interference with access and walkways and other fittings, designed and manufactured by ISD Solutions in Gloucester. Where required, it also installs refrigeration equipment and suitable drainage.

The rooms are constructed using fully food safe materials and designed with flush joints, easy clean surfaces, and rounded and internal coved corners.

Each cold store is designed and constructed to provide an airtight, thermally efficient storage environment to give low energy consumption and reduced running costs.
To meet the Waitrose zero waste to landfill policy, all materials are fully recyclable at end of life and the insulation used is CFC free, with a zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and a global warming potential (GWP) of less than 5, all contributing to carbon reduction for the food retailer.

Andy Hudspith, retail divisional director for ISD Solutions, says: “Delivering high performance cold storage facilities for Waitrose within project timeframes, and at the same time achieving strict environmental targets, remains a key focus for our design, manufacturing and installation teams. With 30 projects already completed this year we are working hard to ensure Waitrose has the best facilities to keep food fresh for longer and to drive down refrigeration energy costs.”
