COLD STORAGE/STRUCTURAL ENGINEERINGCOLUMBIA COLSTOR
Structural Engineer: John F. Bradford, PE, SE
SUMMARY – 260,000 sf Freezer Facility
Crow Engineering was selected to be the prime consultant to the owner of the Columbia Colstor Facility in Quincy, Washington. Our team provided the foundation engineering, structural engineering, and facility planning and engineering, while we coordinated a sub-consultant to take care of the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing.
This was a Green Field Project to build a 260,000 square foot freezer facility with truck and rail docks, offices, shop, and machinery rooms. The rail dock with large roll-up doors is an over-width chilled dock that allows chilled product storage. The facility was partially constructed with refurbished long-span structural steel trusses, columns, and beams that were modified and reused from a dismantled wood products facility.
