Challenge

Mother’s Day – one of the busiest times of the year for the floral industry – means a temporary increase in demand and cooler space.

Project Summary

Mother’s Day is one of the busiest times of the year for a florist. For Kendal Floral Supply this presented a challenge. Kendal needed a way to keep arrangements cool without sacrificing valuable warehouse space the remainder of the year. When a contractor proposed building a permanent cooler room, Kendal recoiled and called Josh Welch, territory manager for Engineered Products, a Papé Company (Seattle, WA).

Instead of a permanent room, Welch proposed installing InsulWall® from Randall Manufacturing. InsulWall, an insulated curtain wall system, would keep the room at a constant temperature of 50 degrees and could be removed when the season was over.

InsulWall Delivered

Engineered Products engaged Randall Manufacturing to work closely with Kendal Floral to:

  • Design InsulWall to leverage Kendal’s infrastructure utilizing existing walls and cooling systems.
  • Engineer InsulWall to take into account the ceiling slope.
  • Provide a panel with a weight less than 50 lbs. per square foot.
  • Create short and long-term cost savings, factoring in InsulWall’s reusability. Just prior to installation, Kendal decided to expand the dimensions – ultimately creating a 3,500 square foot x 37′ high enclosure. Even with the change order, it took only four weeks to manufacture, deliver and install InsulWall. Kendal Floral was striving to meet increased demand by creating a temporary cold storage room – quickly, with a wall system that was modular, flexible and thermal: AND at half the cost of the proposed permanent room.
  • 160,000 sq ft warehouse
  • Half the cost of a permanent room
  • Wall can be moved as needs change
