Industry, CA - 27,000 SF

Bosz Arch, Inc. was selected to design a project and develop construction documents for a new 27,000 square-foot freezer and cold dock addition to the existing Dreyer's Grand Ice Cream 57,000 square-foot distribution facility. Of paramount importance was the need to seamlessly incorporate the new cold storage space into the design and function of the existing facility. Challenges facing the design team for this facility addition included construction considerations to minimize disruption of Dreyer's daily deliveries and shipments.

The shell building addition is concrete tilt-up construction with a steel deck over steel girders and joists. We also provided plans for a -20°F freezer with 42' clear space inside that houses an automated conveyor system spanning three levels, with personnel working on each of the three levels. A 12-foot high, 1,900 square-foot roof-top penthouse houses the refrigeration equipment necessary to complete this temperature-controlled freezer addition.

Bosz Arch, Inc. worked closely with the general contractor throughout the design and construction of this project to provide Dreyer's Grand Ice Cream with an on-time and on budget project.

The thermal design includes:

  • 9" thick concrete floor slab over 6" Dow Deckmate rigid insulation over a Watts Radiant glycol underfloor warming system
  • Concrete walls lined with 6" of Metl-Span polyurethane core wall panels with Polar White USDA finishes
  • Built-up composition roofing covering 10" of Dow Deckmate rigid insulation over the steel deck
