Building cold storage facilities is a detail-oriented process which requires attention to specifications in design and craftsmanship.

Kaiser-Martin has been building and remodeling cold storage facilities for more than two decades. Our team is equipped with the expertise to avoid common pitfalls, follow code requirements, and create efficient structures that last.

Why Quality Construction is So Important in Cold Storage Facilities and Cooled Manufacturing

A cold storage facility is a warehouse or manufacturing space designed for storing  goods which need a controlled temperature. These facilities are typically used for the storage of perishable items such as food, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals, as well as other temperature-sensitive products.

Cold storage facilities are equipped with specialized refrigeration systems that maintain a specific temperature, ranging from below freezing to room temperature depending on the need.

Cold storage facilities are critical for businesses storing perishable goods for an extended period, preventing spoil and maintaining the quality and freshness of the products. Additionally, some products, like fish and salmon, must be manufactured and processed in the same cold environment. From catch to grocery aisle, this step is critical to a quality product.

When a cold storage facility is improperly constructed or sealed (the main problem affecting cold storage facilities), it can lead to a number of problems that jeopardize the products being stored, increase energy costs, and reduce the lifespan of the facility.

Here are some of the problems that can occur in poorly or cheaply built cold storage facilities:

Temperature fluctuations

When a cold storage facility is not properly sealed, it can allow warm air to enter the building, causing temperatures to fluctuate. This can of course lead to spoilage of perishable goods and impact the quality of the products, leading to lost revenue and worse, liabilities if a consumer is impacted.

It can also lead to unexpected residual effects, like condensation and long-term damage.


Improper construction and sealing can also lead to condensation inside the facility. This can cause moisture to build up, which can damage the products being stored, create safety hazards, such as slipping on wet floors, and ultimately further damage the building through rot or mold.

Pest infestations

If a cold storage facility is not properly sealed during construction, pests such as rodents and insects can enter the facility, potentially contaminating the products being stored. In addition, this creates regulatory risks due to rigorous FDA and USDA inspection requirements for many food products.

Energy waste

Cold storage facilities do cost more than traditional buildings to construct due to extensive insulation and additional structural elements.

We’re essentially building “a box within a box.” But the true cost of cold storage is in the ongoing running of the facility, which requires extensive refrigeration and complex HVAC systems. This is where quality construction from the start really shines.

Poorly sealed cold storage facilities can lead to higher energy costs, as the refrigeration system has to work harder to maintain a consistent temperature. This can result in a shorter lifespan for the refrigeration equipment, higher energy costs just for routine use, and ultimately greater capital costs to replace prematurely aging equipment.

Overall, it’s crucial to ensure that your planned cold storage facility is built correctly from the start, properly sealed and built to prevent problems from occurring even years down the road.

Working with an experienced construction company like the Kaiser-Martin Group that specializes in cold storage facilities can help ensure that the facility is designed and built to the highest standards. 

Whether you work with the Kaiser-Martin Group or someone else, ensure that you have a skilled, experienced team on your side from the start.
