Star Technical Solutions (STS) has worked with Tesco Stores Ltd for a number of years as a specialist consultant involved with a range of projects associated with refrigeration and insulated envelopes.
STS was the specialist refrigeration & insulated envelope consultant for the three most recent, temperature controlled DC’s built in the UK under the project titles Eagle, Ant and Hawk. The DC’s are large scale, circa 34,000m2, multi-temperature facilities, -21oC, +1oC & +12oC, situated in the north-west, south-west and south-east of England. The scope of services provided for these projects has included:
A key client requirement has been to improve the efficiency of its facilities, with the lessons learned from one project being incorporated into the next. While at one level the projects appear similar in terms of size and scope, each site has incorporated a range of “Green Initiatives” which are developed from one project to the next, with technical evaluation and total costs of ownership assessments made to confirm their suitability for the individual sites.
