Joint venture Team to Design-Build $40 Million Port of New Orleans Project

Text size: A A

The joint venture team of The McDonnel Group of Metairie and Primus Builders of Georgia has been selected by the Port of New Orleans to construct the $40 million warehouse for New Orleans Cold Storage, a project expected to restore port business lost after Hurricane Katrina damaged the original warehouse.

The joint venture team’s proposal was one of 23 submitted in the competitive bidding.

“This new facility will truly be the model for refrigerated maritime warehousing,” said Matthew Hirsch, vice president of sales for Primus Builders. “We’re especially proud to be part of a project that’s another milestone in the region’s recovery from Katrina.”

The project involves the design and construction of a 142,000-sq-ft cold storage facility to house food products; the facility will have the capability to blast freeze product for direct vessel loading for export.

The energy-efficient project will feature a 35 million-pound cold storage capability and a 1.2 million-pound per day blast freezer capacity.

In addition to the pallet conveying system, highlights include railway access, shrink-compensating slabs and a two-stage refrigeration system with three separate temperature zones.
