Conestoga Cold Storage

WalterFedy has provided architectural and engineering services to Conestoga Cold Storage (CCS) since the late 70s, when we designed an addition that doubled the capacity of the firm’s existing cold-storage warehouse in Kitchener. The high-rack building features a unique structure, with the tubular racking both serving as a storage system and acting as the facility’s frame. A connecting link incorporating receiving docks, snap chills, and an office mezzanine was also designed, joining the high rack building to existing warehousing. Storage and retrieval is carried out via a computer-controlled inventory movement system.

 

Overall, the building is 48-feet wide, 376-feet long, and 80-feet high, and has the capacity to store 9.7 million pounds of food at -10-Degrees Fahrenheit. Beginning with this strong effort, WalterFedy has built a solid and lasting relationship with CCS. Over the years, our architects and engineers have provided services for ongoing renovations on an as-needed basis, and have contributed to CCS facilities across Canada, including:

  • Calgary: 86,000 sq.ft. conventional low-rise freezer and distribution centre, complete with a 12-bay loading dock, staging areas, and administration areas.
  • Mississauga: high-rack storage facility designed in three phases.
  • Montreal: addition of a 60,000 sq.ft. loading dock and 2-storey office buildings, and low-rise freezer warehouse.
