Project Cheney Brothers Inc. Cold Storage Distribution Center

Cheney Brothers Inc. (CBI), a Rivera Beach, FL-based food distributor, wanted to expand its refrigeration capabilities in North Carolina. A M King designed and built a cold storage addition in Statesville, NC that allows the company to continue its northward growth path.

The new warehouse incorporates a fueling station; guardhouse; new fire protection systems and a complex sitework package. The project also included interior dry warehouse renovations (35,000 sf) and a new interior office mezzanine (8,600 sf). Floor warming glycol lines were encased in a 4” mud slab under 5” of floor insulation and 7” shrinkage compensating concrete floor in the freezer and 32-degree cooler.
