The ability to offer clients the in-house services of a full design firm truly differentiates Primus Builders in the cold storage and refrigerated warehouse construction industry. Primus Design Services, LLC, a separate division within Primus Builders, creates customized design packages for in-house contracts as well as stand-alone design-build contracting projects. The design team is a diverse group of architects and engineers that deliver services from master planning and programming to design-build administration and post-construction services.
Primus Design treats each project as a unique entity. The team works closely with the Owner at project kick off to determine his or her specific goals and continuously incorporates those components throughout the design process. These up-front planning and feasibility services provide the most cost-effective and efficient cold storage design strategies. Primus Design then works hand-in-hand with Primus Builders to ensure Owner goals are reflected in the construction of the project. The continuous collaboration between Primus Design and Primus Builders eliminates communication gaps and encourages a well-run project.
Building Information Modeling
Primus Design is committed to integrating up-to-the-minute technology that improves its ability to meet project goals for budget, schedule and quality. The design team is currently implementing Revit, a Building Information Modeling (BIM) software that improves collaboration and streamlines the cold storage design and cold storage construction process by detecting clashes prior to construction.

Sustainability & LEED
Primus has LEED Accredited Professionals on staff that can offer their expertise to deliver sustainable cold storage design solutions and achieve LEED Certification. They are familiar with the LEED scorecard system and will work with each Owner to determine the maximum number of points achievable within their stated budget.
Fast-track delivery is common practice in the cold storage design-build industry. Primus Design has successfully proven its ability to accelerate project delivery while accomplishing specific project goals. Open communication is the key. Because Primus Design is co-located with Primus Builders, the team is able to maintain open communication for the life of the project. The process is shorter, cleaner and easily managed.
