Balford Farms Warehouse Expansion

Balford Farms is a food distribution com­pany which requires freezer, refrigeration, and dry storage space for their products which range from dairy to food to paper goods. Delran Builders expanded on all three of these areas with an 18,343 sq. ft. addition. Various aspects of the project in­cluded:

• Installing an 80’ long dairy conveyor which was tied into the existing conveyor for a continuous run into the existing warehouse

• A glycol floor warming system was installed below the concrete slab in the freezer area to prevent the new slab from heaving at sub freezing temperatures (the new freezer is maintained at twenty de­grees below zero)

• Three new loading docks and a concrete dock area for dumpsters were constructed

• To utilize the ample amount of space on the flat roof of the new and existing buildings, a total of more than 1,300 280- watt and 300-watt solar panels were in­stalled for a final solar service of 742.72kw.

• A 750kw diesel generator was also in­stalled to support the entire facility in the event of a power outage

• Site work included additional truck parking spaces, new paving, and modifica­tions to the retention basin
