The need for proper detailing of thermal barriers, insulation and slabs is of paramount importance when designing a building structure that will also serve as an insulated vessel. When a 35 degree cooler is adjacent to a -10 degree freezer, it is important that structural and thermal building details are in concert to ensure that the building is able to perform efficiently with respect to energy use while still meeting the needs of the client and the client’s processes. Maintaining professional registration in nearly all 50 states allows Providence’s staff of engineers the flexibility to serve cold storage/food clients nationwide.
“We regularly turn to Providence Engineering for sound advice and practical solutions for our engineering needs. We have had the privilege to work on many projects together, from several hundred thousand square foot manufacturing facilities to the smallest of repairs, and time and time again Dan Fichtner and colleagues at Providence have proven to be an invaluable and trusted resource for our team.”
