J&D Refrigerated Services
This new, state-of-the-art storage and distribution facility was constructed as J&D Refrigerated Services' flagship location.
  • Location: Clackamas, Oregon
  • Architect: VLMK Engineering + Design
  • Owner: J&D Refrigerated Services

Prepping the site required cement treating the saturated soils beneath the warehouse location as well as removing large cobblestones, crushing onsite, and re-purposing the crushed rock for fill.

The completed warehouse features 40-feet of clear height, an ammonia-based refrigeration system, coolers, freezers, dry goods storage, Quell fire protection system, and 4,000 SF of rail dock. J&D was able to qualify for Energy Trust incentives based on the energy efficient lighting and refrigeration system.

Perlo returned years later to complete a 34,000 SF design-build expansion to this facility. The expansion featured an 875-foot blast cell that was the first of its kind in the area. Additionally, the project saw a conversion of the existing cooler and dry storage spaces to a freezer with the expansion housing the new cooler, dry storage, and cooled truck dock.
