Kilmarnock dealer Transition Interiors has fitted two giant coldrooms into catering facilities operated by Lothian Buses.
It was given the task of refurbishing the kitchen facilities at the transport group’s Edinburgh HQ, as well as a separate depot in the city, and teamed up with manufacturer Celltherm for the coldrooms.
Stephen Brownlow, managing director of Transition, said Celltherm was by its side all the way in planning the coldrooms and attending site meetings to decide the best location, lay-out and specification for the refrigeration and freezing facilities.
“We work with Celltherm because we must work with the best equipment and systems providers in their field on every project,” he said. “I’ve personally worked with Celltherm for over 15 years and I know they produce fantastic materials in their German factory that is complemented by on-the-ground expertise in designing coldrooms that deliver exactly what we, and the client, want.”
For the HQ, Celltherm supplied a modular bulk storage freezer with food safe shelving and integral refrigeration system, while a chiller and a freezer was put into the depot site. It features fully cam-locked 80mm polyurethane panels and a unique passer system which increases efficiency and lengthens the life of the coldroom structure.
“It’s very easy to order a ‘coldroom’ from the internet, but without expertise from a company with Celltherm’s calibre and support it could turn into a costly disaster,” said Brownlow.
Transition’s previous work with Celltherm has included projects for the likes of the BBC to the Ineos Grangemouth refinery facility.
