Project Overview

CRS have had a relationship with Brook Street for numerous years. They currently used a CRS Mega 40 cold storage solution.

They recently needed additional storage but had limited space on site.



With limited access and a tight schedule to build a CRS Mega Complex, engineers had to skate boxes into a tight area and then join them in the middle.


The CRS Solution

As there was limited space onsite, CRS came up with an innovative and unique solution. They decided to build 2x CRS Mega 40’s length ways to give Brook Street Foods a cold store 24ft x 80ft with a side loading door.

This provided Brook Street Foods with the ability to freeze 80 pallets and get to at ease.
