Project Summary

728,520 SF highly complex distribution center, food production, cold storage facility and office retrofit / finish-out in Irving, Texas, by Bob Moore Construction.

Project Detail

Frye Road cold storage warehouse, food manufacturing and distribution facility project is a 728,520 SF finish-out / retrofit of an existing warehouse in Irving, Texas, in which Bob Moore Construction, acting as design-builder, transformed an empty shell building that had never been previously occupied into a highly complex distribution center, cold storage facility and office.

The design/build team of Bob Moore Construction with Pross Design Group (architectural), McHale Engineering (structural), Pacheco Koch (civil), RC&E (refrigeration) and Fox Electric (electrical engineering) combined to deliver a remarkable facility. This new warehouse / distribution center is designed to support the packaging, storage and distribution of refrigerated and non-refrigerated foods for a national grocery chain's stores across Texas and in the surrounding states.

The new cold storage warehouse and distribution facility includes six independent temperature zones, including:

  • 5,000 SF -20° ice cream room;
  • 78,000 SF 0° freezer with 21,000 SF cold dock;
  • 168,800 SF 34° refrigerated area;
  • 122,000 SF 65° conditioned storage area;
  • 264,200 SF dry storage area for non-refrigerated foods and products and future freezer space;
  • 23,247 SF Ready-To-Eat / Cheese Packaging and Processing Area - A temperature- and ventilation-controlled area with insulated metal panel walls and ceilings that houses 13 separate rooms for the preparing and packaging of cheese and ready-to-eat items.

Refrigeration is controlled at the various levels with an extensive industrial ammonia refrigeration system and insulated metal panel walls and ceilings. An underfloor glycol warming system beneath the freezer areas prevents the slab from freezing

In addition, the facility features 23,676 SF of employee offices, restrooms and break rooms.

To support the dozens of electricity-powered forklifts used in the warehouse, the facility includes three separate battery charging rooms (16,000 SF total), each with the space, racking and power sources to charge dozens of vehicular batteries.

Outside the cold storage facility, we built two additional ground-up buildings with tilt-up construction; a 3,500 SF ammonia refrigeration compressor building and 6,100 SF truck maintenance building. Surrounding the facility we added 264,558 SF of new paving.
