DESIGNING A CHALLENGING SPACE-CRUNCHED COLD STORAGE FACILITY

PROJECT DETAILS

Located in Turbhe, the structure consisted of a cold storage building with 4 levels, totalling 10,000 sq feet of BUA, with 3 cold storage units inside it. An existing building at the site was evaluated for re-use.

WHAT AGAMI DID..

The current structure was evaluated and found inadequate for re-use. A new structure was conceptualized satisfying all the architectural constraints. The concept was a "building-within-a-building" one, commonly used in cold storages.

DESIGN CHALLENGES

There was no space for a loading bay. Finally a 4m cantilever overhang of the building created space for a loading bay. The over hang was supported by deep cantilever beams and appropriate detailing for taking care of cladding and insulations.

HOW ACR BENEFITTED WITH Valuemize®

The structural concept was based on efficient solutioning by AGAMI satisfying all the constraints loaded on the structural side.
