Turnkey Construction Underway of Clinical Chillers & Freezers

Stancold’s 75-year history in the design and build of temperature-controlled environments has laid the foundations for our dedicated Clean Room Envelope Specialist Team to undertake more specialist requirements in the pharmaceutical and medical industry.

It’s this element of our service offering that saw CREST appointed as the turnkey contractor of a number of chilled and frozen storage areas, as part of a redevelopment project within clinical research in Manchester.

Working with the principal contractor for the large-scale project, our expert team are responsible for the supply and installation of 8 chillers and 4 freezers across four floors of the building. This encompasses the construction of walls, ceilings, doors, lighting and coordination of refrigeration equipment installation.

Being able to integrate into clients’ design teams from the early stages is another aspect of CREST’s way of working. This has been essential for this contract so that our team could get a thorough understanding of the specification and in return, be able to advise on project-specific build factors that could impact the design.

The clinical chillers and freezers will utilise Kingspan’s QuadCore panel system, known for its superior efficiency capabilities for temperature-controlled environments, alongside sliding chiller and hinged freezer doors. Coordination, installation and testing of refrigeration in line with the rest of the build schedule will ensure that the cold rooms maintain a temperature of +4⁰C and freezers at -20⁰C.

Stancold CREST continue to demonstrate their expertise and experience across the pharmaceutical & medical industries, for temperature control and cleanroom requirements alike.
