Primus Builders, Inc. was named the winner of the 2017 International Association for Cold Storage Construction (IACSC) Built by the Best Award for their project with Lineage Logistics.
The award was given on November 3, 2017 during a general session at the 37th IACSC Conference & Expo following a presentation on the project by Primus and Lineage representatives.
Lineage Logistics contracted with Primus Builders, Inc. on an 180,000 square foot greenfield cold storage distribution center in North Charleston, SC. The LEED Silver-certified facility serves as a regional import/export hub for protein products destined for domestic and international markets. It features the newest high-capacity blast freezing technology and offers road and rail access (via a Norfolk Southern rail line) as well as immediate ship access to the Port of Charleston. The project faced significant challenges including two hurricanes that dropped more than two feet of rain on the site.
Award Finalist, Tippmann Innovation, also presented at the conference, for their project with Merchandise Warehouse. Tippmann helped Merchandise meet their customers needs and expand the scope of their initial project plan with 25% more pallet positions.
Information about the 2018 award will be available soon.
