Total Coolrooms was selected as the preferred partner to construct the upgrade of National Storage's facility in Brunswick, Victoria.
The brief was to convert the third floor storage area into a temperature controlled room for wine storage. This is a service that National Storage are offering to their clients under their "Wine Ark" program.
The room dimensions were 29000mm x 31000mm x 2900mm high and the site had its challenges. The location was a off a busy thorough fare with a narrow entrance to the site.
A third floor window had to be removed and all the materials had to be hoisted up 3 floors through the opening. The building was over 100 years old and various obstacles had to be overcome including dealing with uneven flooring, walls & ceilings.
The project included the supply and installation of the insulated panel, refrigeration and electrical works. Titan packaged refrigeration units were utilised to provide the correct temperature for wine storage with a back up system as redundancy.
2 drop down doors and 2 sliding doors were manufactured and installed to improve efficiency and also to meet the OHS policy of National Storage. A further 6 PA doors were installed around the room to allow easy access.
All obstacles were overcome to deliver a very high standard outcome.
