Shop Rite of Parkway Crossing Now Open

June 1st, 2012 

 

Cold Technology is pleased to announce the grand opening of Klein's Shop Rite of Parkway Crossing in Baltimore County, Maryland which opened on June 1st, 2012.

 

This former Superfresh was completely renovated in the record  time of ten weeks from permit to grand opening. This would not have been possible without the team effort by Klein's Supermarkets, Browns Superstores, Cold Technology , Lynmar Builders, and Wakefern Food Corporation.

 

The store design by Cold Technology provides much greater display area  concentrations than the existing Superfresh delivering much greater variety to the consumer. 

 

Energy efficient refrigerated display cases were  primarily provided by Kysor Warren but also include specialty display cases by Southern Store Fixtures and hot and cold bars by Custom Built displays.

 

Even with the compressed time schedule, Cold Technology's supermarket design methodology, the concise construction documentation by Ignarri Loomis /  BD Engineering,  and the supermarket construction expertise of Lynmar Builders managed to hold construction change orders to less than 1/4% of the total project cost.

 

Cold Technology's integrated design methodology embraces Emerson's "Intelligent Store Architecture"  which seamlessly integrates all of the building 's refrigeration, HVAC, and lighting systems into a unified business intelligence and support system.

 

The DX refrigeration system at Bear represents the state of the art in refrigeration system design which features electronic expansion valve control of all evaporators, ECM  fan motors, LED lighting, Copeland Digital Discus compressors and  Bohn  energy efficient roof top condensers controlled by variable frequency drives.

 

The existing HVAC systems at Bear were revamped to include proportional control of the supply fan, economizer, gas fired heating, as well as “Demand Ventilation” to significantly reduce the ventilation load requirements.

Shop Rite of Governor's Square Now Open

December 31st, 2011
 
Cold Technology is pleased to announce the grand opening of Shop Rite of Governor's Square in Bear Delaware which opened on December 31st 2011.

 

"Bear", a former Thriftway, and more recently a Genuardi's, was expanded by 12,000 square feet and completely renovated in the record  time of fourteen weeks from permit to certificate of occupancy. This would not have been possible without high level of cooperation provided by local government and a great team effort by Delaware Supermarkets, Cold Technology , Lynmar Builders, and Wakefern Food Corporation.

 

The store design by Cold Technology provides similar display area  concentrations to  Delaware Supermarket's much larger Christina Landing store, while the interior design by Broden Interriors maintain a very consistent look, feel, and interior branding as compared to sister store Christina. 

 

Energy efficient refrigerated display cases were  primarily provided by Kysor Warren but also include specialty display cases by Southern Store Fixtures and hot and cold bars by Custom Built displays.

 

Even with the compressed time schedule and winter conditions, Cold Technology's supermarket design methodology, the concise construction documentation by Ignarri Loomis /  BD Engineering,  and the supermarket construction expertise of Lynmar Builders managed to hold construction change orders to less than 1/2% of the total project cost without sacrifice to form, function, detail, or quality.

 

Cold Technology's integrated design methodology embraces Emerson's "Intelligent Store Architecture"  which seamlessly integrates all of the building 's refrigeration, HVAC, and lighting systems into a unified business intelligence and support system.

 

The DX refrigeration system at Bear represents the state of the art in refrigeration system design which features electronic expansion valve control of all evaporators, ECM  fan motors, LED lighting, Copeland Digital Discus compressors and  Bohn  energy efficient roof top condensers controlled by variable frequency drives.

 

The HVAC systems at Bear feature  DX dehumidification and fully proportional control of the supply fan, economizer, gas fired heating and Copeland Digital Scroll cooling, as well as “Demand Ventilation” to significantly reduce the ventilation load requirements.

 

Lighting loads throughout the facility are controlled by Cutler Hammer smart breakers eliminating the need for contactors while providing the ultimate in flexibility and precise lighting zone control.

NJFC Energy Aggregation Reduces Electricity Supply Costs

May 25, 2011

The New Jersey Food Council Energy Aggregation reduced electricity supply costs by over $5 Million for the period from June 2011 to June 2012.

Members of the New Jersey Food Council Electricity Supply Aggregation recently went out to bid for electricity supply service to take advantage of market prices that are currently at six year lows. As Members were currently under contract until June 2012, bids were solicited from four NJ BPU registered Third Party Suppliers for the period from June 2012 to June 2013.

ConEd Solutions provided the lowest prices for all but four percent of the Aggregation’s electricity needs and, as the current supplier, was able to offer Members the opportunity to blend their contract price for the period from June 2011 to June 2012 with the new, lower prices for the period from June 2012 to June 2013. Combined with the new contract signed with First Energy Solutions for the four percent of the Aggregation’s electricity needs not won by ConEd Solutions, the net result of the Aggregation’s efforts will reduce electricity supply costs by over $5 million over the next 12 months (June 2011 – June 2012).

The New Jersey Food Council Electricity Supply Aggregation is comprised of 44 members representing 362 accounts. Members have been receiving competitive electricity supply since February 2009, and since that time have realized savings of over $13.2 million versus electricity supply tariff rates provided by utilities.

Progress Plaza Fresh Grocer Receives Award for Best Commercial Project Under $15 Million

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 18, 2010



PHILADELPHIA, PA – The General Building Contractors Association (a broad based membership association representing different types of contractors, including general contractors, subcontractors, and specialty contractors) has announced the results of the 2010 Construction Excellence Awards. 

The Construction Excellence Awards are the premier awards given out in recognition of excellence in construction and safety.  The program is dedicated to creating a greater awareness throughout the region of the quality workmanship produced by general contractors.

Project submissions were judged on criteria such as innovation in technique and materials, meeting challenges, design requirements, and owner satisfaction.

Best Commercial Project Under $15 Million was awarded to The Fresh Grocer at Progress Plaza with recognition going to the contractor, E.P. Guidi, Inc., the primary architect, Cubellis, and the owner, The Fresh Grocer.  The Fresh Grocer also acknowledges Cold Technology, Inc for their engineering design and store development as well as Balongue Design for interior design.

“This project was completed in record time, seven months from ground breaking to grand opening, a feat that would not have been achieved without the collaborative efforts of these talented vendors.” said Tony Varallo, The Fresh Grocer’s Director of Engineering and Store Development.

The 46,000-square-foot Fresh Grocer supermarket located at 1501 N. Broad Street in North Philadelphia anchors Progress Plaza, the nation’s oldest African-American owned and developed shopping center.  The store boasts a unique total energy management system that continually monitors power consumption in every device and automatically adjusts systems to minimize energy consumption based on daylight, temperature and shopping traffic.  This equates to a 35% energy reduction in the total usage of all systems.  Additionally, the system allows The Fresh Grocer to work with PECO Energy Company so that the store automatically lowers its energy levels of refrigeration and lighting units during the energy company’s peak times, dramatically lessening the Progress Plaza Fresh Grocer’s overall energy footprint. 

“At The Fresh Grocer, we’re committed to developing and operating our stores with the best interest of our community and environment in mind,” said Patrick J. Burns, President and CEO of The Fresh Grocer.  “The energy management system at our Progress Plaza Fresh Grocer allows us to run a sustainable business in an environmentally-friendly manner.” 

The store further manages its carbon footprint by utilizing energy efficient lighting as well as a back-up energy source.  Other noteworthy project features include a rooftop parking deck and seven murals on the exterior of the building commissioned by the City of Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program.

Additional awards for construction excellence were given for Best Commercial Project Over $15 Million, Best Industrial / Institutional Project Under $15 Million, Best Industrial / Institutional Project Over $15 Million, Best Adaptive Re-Use Project, Excellence in Craftsmanship, Best Historic Preservation Project, Best Green Building Project, Best Infrastructure / Transportation Project, and Best Specialty Contractor Project.
