Commercial Refrigeration Project Considerations
As you well know, commercial refrigeration units go well beyond larger cabinet units and can involve complex systems that consist of compressors, condensers, evaporators and much more. Choosing the correct equipment and creating a design that properly spaces and optimizes all the different working parts takes skill and experience. Here are just a few of the common considerations that need to be thought through when designing a commercial refrigeration project:
- What kind of weather conditions might affect how the system operates? It is important to keep in mind that refrigeration units will be put under additional stress during warmer weather as it works harder to keep the area cool. That means that the unit must be designed with a maximum operating capacity in mind. Taking a proactive approach to understanding the potential demands that will be put on your unit also allows us to design a more efficient model that won’t cause spikes in energy consumption and utility bills as the weather changes.
- What kind of space is available to install the refrigeration unit? While the final design will be heavily dictated by the needs of each individual business, the building architecture can also play an important role in how the unit is configured. In addition, local building codes may outline where certain components can be placed. You can rest assured that the design team at NDBS will take all these factors into consideration when designing an industrial refrigeration unit for your building.
- Does the final design meet industry standards for safety and efficiency? There are a variety of codes and standards that have been set forth both by independent organizations and governmental departments that outline performance standards for commercial refrigeration units. NDBS can ensure that your unit is compliant with all the latest regulations and provide you with an efficient refrigeration unit that has been designed with an eye towards sustainability. In fact, we work to go beyond existing standards and design solutions that look towards the future and anticipate trends.
BIM Modeling for Commercial Refrigeration Projects
At NDBS, we rely on the latest technology including BIM and 3D modeling to create precise renderings of your refrigeration unit during the preconstruction and design phase. This powerful tool allows us to visualize all the different components of the project and avoid potential conflicts. It also works to significantly speed up the design, fabrication and installation processes so that you can save both time and money.
The Importance of Food Safety
The main job of commercial refrigeration companies is to help commercial buildings and food retailers store food at a safe temperature so that customers enjoy the best possible products that are safe from contamination. We take this job seriously and work to stay on top of both refrigeration technology and the latest in food safety best practices. This comprehensive approach allows us to provide a system of checks and balances that support your efforts to providing high quality food.
Maintain, Upgrade and Repair Your Existing System
NDBS also works on existing units to help correct problems, improve efficiency, make unit compliant with current regulations and increase overall performance. We can start with a thorough inspection and analysis that looks at air handling, automation controls, compressors types and sizes and a variety of other components. Based on our findings, we will make specific recommendations to help improve performance and reduce energy consumption. From there, we can help you to implement changes and monitor progress.
Our team of commercial and industrial refrigeration experts are well-versed in a wide range of parts and brands, which allows us to quickly make repairs, no matter what kind of system you are using. If you are having trouble maintaining temperature or humidity levels or the system is simply using too much power, we can quickly troubleshoot the problem and make any necessary repairs.
The best way to protect your refrigeration system is to set up a schedule for regular maintenance. This will help you identify and replace worn parts before they fail, locate inefficiencies that can be improved and avoid major repairs that can result in downtime that may cause food to spoil and result in a significant loss of revenue. Work with our experts to set up a regular maintenance schedule and take a proactive approach to keeping your system up and running.
