WDS was commissioned to build a 129,000 square foot cold storage facility for Beaver Dam Cold Storage in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. The facility holds -10 degree freezer storage, 34 degrees cooler storage, and 8 shipping docks at 17 degrees. WDS provided design/build services, as well as general contractor services for the project. A unique aspect of the build was the design, as we needed to layout a facility that would have ample freezer and cooler space for a future expansion. To put this plan into action, we had to overcome wet weather conditions that sometimes hindered our ability to move forward in construction. With some patience and a strong work ethic, we were able to create an efficient and cutting-edge facility to store products despite the weather. The result was a facility that is Safe Quality Food Certified. WDS’ work on this project earned the ABC-WI Silver Project of Distinction Award. This award highlights the quality and professionalism of merit construction projects by ABC of Wisconsin members.
