Sobeys Banana Ripening Rooms

Project Description

Matheson was the construction manager for the 25,000 sq.ft. interior addition of 15 banana ripening rooms. The existing facility was an actively operating retail support centre with a unionized labour force and over 100 shipping docks. An extremely detailed logistics and site specific safety plan was implemented to ensure that the interaction between construction and distribution activities was done safely. Our site was clearly delineated with construction fencing and floor-to-ceiling curtains to mitigate risks.

Project features included over 1,500 l.f. of insulated metal panel, new glycol chiller package, 335 HP ammonia compressor, 600/75/30 amp new 575-volt breakers for power distribution, 30-ceiling mounted condenser units, building mechanical and electrical as well as new interior concrete curbs.

Project was completed in 4.5 months including demolition and full commissioning.
