IFB Refrigeration manufacturing facility built by Everest

With this project, Everest has proved to be a reliable partner to our customers and raised the bar higher within the company with this success. We are poised for many more challenging projects to come our way in the future.

Project Brief

IFB Refrigeration Ltd. planned to set up a new facility for manufacturing Refrigerators in Maharashtra. After due diligence and discussions with the consultant, the client chose Everest to execute the project based on the trust built over a previous project. This project was significant as the facility was critical for increasing the production capacity.

Everest had a dual responsibility to execute a quality job in the current project and retain the reputation of being a reliable partner, which was an important aspect. Regular interactions were conducted at the consultant and client’s offices and on-site to understand the project’s intricacies. Detailed planning was carried out at all phases of the project. The aim was to execute the project within the customer’s required time without overlooking economics.

Materials

All materials for the building were carefully chosen to meet the client’s requirements for the project. After considering surrounding weather conditions throughout the year at the site, Mineral wool of specific R-value was chosen for roof insulation to maintain the desired temperature inside the building.

The building layout was planned to get maximum unobstructed material and people movement space. The depth of Mezzanine beams was limited to provide maximum clear height under the Deck Slab. Standing Seam was used as a roofing solution for durability and water tightness to prevent leakages, which increased the project lifecycle phenomenally. Horizontal cladding colour bands in the wall and louvres were important features in the project.

The right amount of ventilation for the building, as desired by the end user, was achieved by using roof monitors and louvres. These features provided the required air changes per hour for a fatigue-free working environment for labour, thus ensuring more productivity.

Polycarbonate sheets were chosen to provide diffused ambient light inside the building. Additionally, Everest wall cladding of the desired colour was used to make the façade attractive. Flush, cantilever fascia, and canopies with reverse slopes ensured an excellent aesthetic look.

Geometry

The building had critical height requirements concerning Lean-To and EOT cranes and spans over 350 meters, making the building susceptible to temperature effects and stresses during temperature variance. Provisions were made for relieving such temperature stresses. The building also has a mezzanine area designed as a composite deck slab. Portal and cross-bracing were used in conjunction for lateral stability and openings.

Uniqueness

There are different kinds of loading, like collateral loads on the roof, solar panel loads, etc. Jack beams were introduced for better space utilisation and to give way for more accurate machinery and equipment installation without forgetting the important aspect of optimising structural steel. This made the project unique in its way.

Challenges  

Horizontal wall cladding installation was a challenging task from an aesthetic point of view. The strict timeline made the task more critical. Everest’s team was always alert for any unforeseen challenges. This helped quickly resolve challenges and avoided any impact on the project timeline. Meticulous execution by the Everest site management team and effective coordination with the project management team and the consultant-led to achieving milestones. They kept the project on track to timely completion.
