A grocery store isn’t just a grocery store anymore. Store owners are facing interesting challenges when it comes to designing their building systems. Dialectic (formerly Larson Binkley) can deliver innovative mechanical, electrical and plumbing design engineering incorporating the best value in new grocery store MEP technologies. For example, heating, air conditioning and humidity requirements need to be balanced inside the building where open and closed refrigeration equipment is operating to promote product shelf life. Case operation is affected by outdoor air delivery mechanisms and HVAC integration. It ultimately controls the products quality. That quality is important for the consumer buying experience.
There is a lot of knowledge regarding minimum indoor air quality standards while maintaining environmental conditions suitable for the proper function of open refrigerated casework. This is a facet of grocery store design that is changing rapidly since casework solutions that incorporate new refrigerant alternatives are arriving regularly. New global initiatives for global warming cause current casework solutions to become obsolete. Dialectic designs focus on the consistent indoor conditions necessary for the best refrigeration system performance possible, while taking proper cooling credits to optimize cooling system capacity for operational performance and reduced first cost.
