Cold storage construction heats up amid COVID-19 pandemic

Cold storage construction heats up amid COVID-19 pandemic

With a growing number of items that need to be kept at a cool or even freezing temperature, the cold storage business is now booming as vaccines, fresh and frozen foods need to be maintained at the correct temperature.

In addition to large regional facilities, owners and developers are building micro fulfillment centers, said Matt Hirsch, president of Primus Builders. While these smaller structures further reduce the distance between the product and the end customer, they aren’t replacing regional ones.

There still needs to be regional distribution centers to supply the micro fulfillment centers,” he said.

Future projects could also include conversions of a portion of grocery stores into micro fulfillment facilities, according to Hirsch.

You have to be close to where people are in order to meet the demand,” he said.
