InterChange Group started construction of a modern, full-service cold storage facility in Mt. Crawford, Va. The building, which will support the region’s growing food-and-beverage industries, will be constructed in several phases and have the potential to reach 600,000 ft2 and over 80,000 pallet positions in multiple rooms with temperatures ranging from -10 to 34°F (-23 to 1.1°C). 

Phase 1, with approximately 16,000 pallet positions, is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2019. Construction of a similarly sized Phase 2, which will include blast freezing, will follow almost immediately.
