Lineage Logistics is one of the country’s largest providers of customized cold chain solutions. The firm specializes in public refrigerated warehousing, port-centric warehousing and dedicated distribution facilities. To meet the demands of its clients in Southeastern California, Lineage selected Primus to provide design-build services on a 420,000 SF greenfield PRW in Colton, California.This fast-track project will be completed in two phases. Phase I features a 35°F convertible cross dock. Eight mini penthouse cooling units will also be installed.Phase II centers on the freezer and cooler with temperatures ranging from -10°F to 55°F. Cranes will be used to install seven large penthouse cooling units. Rack and the IMP interior will be also be completed.The facility will have 134 dock positions; eight banana rooms (with the potential for 10); two, 2-story support offices; and three, 1-story shipping/ receiving offices. The exterior concrete will total approximately 900,000 SF. The freezers will contain LED lights, and shrink compensating floors will be featured throughout. A battery handling room with opportunity charging stations are also included.An interesting component of this project is the condition of California’s native soil. Because of the hot, dry climate, the soil is generally sandy and loose. To ensure the site will be ready for construction, Primus has included watering the site in its daily schedule. This ensures the soil is more compact and ready for construction activities.
