United States Cold Storage


Project Details

Primus provided design-build services on two phases of this cold storage distribution facility located in Quakertown, Pennsylvania.

Key features of the facility include:

  • Convertible freezers that provide temperature zones ranging from 0°-36° • 28 dock positions
  • State-of-the-art, energy efficient CO2/NH3 cascade refrigeration system
  • LED lighting with an integrated control system
  • Set up for future rail access
  • 2-story office to allow regional human resources team to be located on site
  • 2-story employee welfare area
  • Dock area that allows trucks to open their doors into the building
  • Self-polishing, shrink compensated flooring throughout

A portion of the site was located on protected wetlands. Primus worked closely with the Bucks County Conservation District and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to negotiate a solution. The existing wetlands were relocated to a designated area that supported the relevant ecosystem.



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