Project Details

Americold, one of Primus Builders’ long-standing repeat clients, selected Primus to provide design-build services on a renovation and freezer addition to their Salt Lake City cold storage building. This was a fast-track project that required the team to work closely with the City of Salt Lake Building Department to secure all permits. As a result, Primus completed the first phase of the project (approximately 160,000 SF) in 3.5 months.

Primus worked rigorously with the local power provider to negotiate incentives to pay for upgraded, energy-efficient LED lighting fixtures and an upgraded central ammonia refrigeration system.

This project also featured insulated metal panel work, which Primus self-performed, and a shrink-compensating floor. Primus’s structural engineers developed design solutions to overcome the challenge of new rooftop equipment weights, enabling efficient installation of the new process and mechanical equipment.


If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, a can-do attitude, and a passion for design-build, consider Primus.
