About the Project
Bishop’s Central Storehouse is a state-of-the-art storage facility that allows the LDS Church to serve the needs of people facing economic challenges. VBFA provided mechanical engineering services for this facility that includes warehouse, a transportation center and vehicle maintenance, office space, tire storage, a fire pump house, and more than 60,000 sq. ft. of freezer/cold dock space. Mechanical, plumbing and fire protection systems were designed to withstand a maximum-scale earthquake, and the entire facility could be up and running within an hour of an earthquake and could be fully self-sustainable for seven days.
