The need for proper detailing of thermal barriers, insulation and slabs is of paramount importance when designing a building structure that will also serve as an insulated vessel. When a 35 degree cooler is adjacent to a -10 degree freezer, it is important that structural and thermal building details are in concert to ensure that the building is able to perform efficiently with respect to energy use while still meeting the needs of the client and the client’s processes.
