Skylight Cold Storage Facility


Kwang Yeow Heng envisioned to provide a high-end storage facility to house multiple tenant warehouse and premium cold room services to General B1 warehouse business, locally and on a regional level.

The proposed new development consists of an 8 storey warehouse with a basement principally accommodating cold rooms at basement level and 2nd storey. The warehouse/ office areas are designated from 3rd to 8th storey.

The design approach was built around the idea of concentrating all the cold room storage on the lower floors to maximize workflow efficiency.  Possibly being a prototype design, a basement based cold room design was derived integrating with anti-frost air-vent system beneath all cold rooms.  Unlike the conventional heating mat system, the air-vent system essentially encompasses banks of metal pipes laid beneath cold room floors. Ambient air is introduced into the air-vent pipes to dissipate air heat radially around the pipes to prevent the shell building structure from the possibility of freezing in the long run.
