As an extension of a decades long relationship with the Ingles family, our firm was selected to build Ingles’ new Cold Storage Distribution Center. The project, located on a 46-acre site in Western Buncombe County, was delivered on a fast-track schedule and represented the single largest investment in the history of the Ingles Company. The facility consists of 840,000 sf of cooler and freezing space with temperatures ranging from 55° to -20°, a 20,000 sf ice facility which produces 75 tons of ice per day, and a three-story, 45,000 sf Class “A” office building. The facility also contains a refrigeration engine room that houses a cutting-edge, 2700- ton, ammonia refrigeration system. The distribution center’s climate controlled space includes over 20,000 product storage rack positions, 11 banana ripening rooms, a cheese slicing and packaging facility, and 84 dock stations with full vertical levers. Also included with the project was a 4-story, custom designed pick module system.
