Temperature Controlled Storage Project Management

The difference between a project being on budget and on time or otherwise often hinges on the quality of your project management team or providers, especially when it comes to specialist projects.

If you are looking to incorporate blast freezing or expanding your temperature controlled storage capacity, you may find that a specialist project manager would be best suited to take the lead.

There are a number of considerations to undertake before getting into the specific details of your project that your CRS project manager will work with you on. These will be used to help determine whether the project is appropriate for the end results you are looking for or whether there is a more effective solution for you. Here at CRS, we understand that each project is unique and whilst some may benefit from the cost reductions of an off the shelf solution, for others it isn't appropriate.

Your CRS project manager will coordinate any additional services to ensure that the overall project can be completed with a single contact as opposed to many. Your initial consultation with one of our project managers will be to determine:

  • The purpose and the aim of the project
  • What resources are available
  • What resources are required
  • What are the potential cost implications
  • What is the potential disruption could be caused by the project
  • The tasks needed to complete the project from concept to completion.

These factors will inform and guide the four key steps involved in a CRS managed project.

  • Investigation
  • Planning and design
  • Production
  • Monitoring & Evaluation

Our project managers work alongside our experts in blast freezing, product design and our fabrication and refrigeration specialists to ensure that each phase is managed effectively and efficiently.

The timescale for production will be outlined and the critical path will be considered to ensure that your project is finished on time and with minimal disruption.
