Brinkmann Constructors, a national, full-service general contractor, in partnership with Coastal Carriers, a Troy, Missouri-based transportation, warehouse and distribution company, recently broke ground on a 125,500-square-foot industrial cold storage distribution center. This is the first of three phases included in the project.

Located less than a mile from Interstate 70 in Warren County, Missouri, Coastal Carriers will lease cold storage space in the new facility. The warehouse will include a 55,600-square-foot freezer with a 42-foot clear height; a 23,500-square-foot cold dock that will span 70 feet deep; a 29,300-square-foot cooler; and 15,500 pallet positions total. These main spaces will be complemented by an 8,600-square-foot office space and a 7,500-square-foot battery charging and maintenance zone.

“We look forward to expanding our company and continuing to grow our national reach by taking our cold storage operations to a new level,” said John Dunard, owner of Coastal Carriers. “With its cutting-edge features and centralized location, this new facility is positioned to bring us continued success.” 

In addition to its strategic location, the facility will offer ample parking, including 73 car spaces, 28 trailer spaces and 19 dock doors for efficient loading and unloading. Collaborating with Answers, Inc., a St. Louis-based architecture firm, the facility is on track for completion in the fourth quarter of 2024.

“As a general contractor committed to excellence, we are proud to collaborate with Coastal Carriers in creating a state-of-the-art cold storage facility that will not only meet but exceed industry standards for efficiency and reliability,” said Charlie Hirschi, executive director of Food and Beverage for Brinkmann Constructors.
