A story of rags to riches: a Davis makeover
This season at Davis we are trying to eliminate the need for a refrigerated shipping container to store frozen foods. Because the existing freezer in the green store is undersized and attached to a plant room and chocolate store it was decided to combine the three into one large freezer. The walls of the plant room were insulated along with the choc store so it seemed like a good idea.
Then the work began. The demolition job revealed a few surprises with the existing internal walls buried 400 mm into the concrete, but not to be deterred, with the true Antarctic spirit in mind, we pushed on. Thankfully a few of us helped out with the almost 150 patches and reinsulating to prepare for the final paint job. With the painting finished and floor plates in place we are ready to put the new shelving in and commission the new refrigeration units.
