Royal Holloway Student Union

Egham

Customer: Royal Holloway University, Egham

Solutions: Remote glass door multidecks

Features: Remote glass door multidecks

Savings: Low energy equipment

Project overview

We were asked to tender for refrigerated display equipment and plant by Retail Design Solutions for this prestigious University student union at Royal Holloway University. A brand new building with a fantastic convenience store built on the University grounds for the students. High end design and a strong concept meant that they needed to work with suppliers who could help deliver this store to the best standards. The Kalifornia Ecovision range fitted the brief perfectly and we where also able to supply a mid height version to help vision across the store.

What did Pastorfrigor install?

We installed the Kalifornia Ecovision range of multidecks along with a mid height Kalifornia that featured one side with doors, one open with a head cabinet. All of the refrigeration is being run by a Daikin Zeas unit installed by our partner company - Byair limited. In fact Pastorfrigor GB Limited supplied the backup coldrooms, contracting and Daikin Zeas plant to this project as a turnkey package.

What were the results?

The Union Shop is the one stop shop for all essentials while students are at Royal Holloway and its open every day of the week from 8am-11pm for convenience.
If students are looking for something to eat, they will find a wide range of groceries including chilled and frozen foods, sandwiches, drinks, wines and beers. They can also get a caffiene fix from the new Costa coffee machine.

The Union Shop, as the name suggests, is managed by the Student's Union.  Their focus is to offer gret value while putting money back into the student's pockets. This means there are no card charges and minimum spend so they are free to pay for shopping however they want.

East of England Cooperative

Woodbridge

Customer: Coop, Woodbridge

Solutions: Remote Pastorfrigor multidecks and full glass door, Pastorkalt spot merchandisers.

Savings: Low energy equipment with fantastic energy efficiency

Project overview

The East of England Co-op purchased the former Budgens store in Hamlin Walk Woodbridge in September 2016. The 7,000sqft store will be one of the East of England Co-op’s new generation supermarkets stocking a wide range of its multi-award winning sourced locally produce, Deli-to-Go range, beers, wines and spirits and in-store bakery. Other services include an ATM, Subway, Collect + and home delivery. Customers also have access to free customer parking. The current Post Office will continue to provide a service to the local community from the store. Given its long history of partnering with the Co-op, we were delighted to be awarded the contract to refit the refrigeration, especially since we had prior experience of fitting out the store when it was first built by Budgens and also all subsequent refits. There was a lot of pressure on this project to ensure that we provided refrigeration that hit the high end design brief required for this flagship store so a lot of attention was given to cabinet profiles, colours and merchandising points of sale. We also worked closely with Hartes, the provider of some of the special finishes for the kiosk area, to clad some dual temperature integral impulse cabinets at the front of the store.

What did Pastorfrigor install?

Pastorfrigor provided the Venezia P87 range of multidecks, some open with glass front risers and also with Cisaplast sliding doors, all featuring Philips LED lighting, EC fans and stainless steel bumpers. The frozen food cabinets were Pastorfrigor Torino and the spot merchandisers Pastorkalt Felix BT/TN cabinets with cladding from Hartes.

What were the results?

It was a hugely exciting and enterprising project to work on and we were thrilled we the end result, helping the store become a new generation supermarket. Michael Scarlett, Project Manager for the East of England Co-op, told us “Pastorfrigor were very thorough. Like with all new projects, there can be teething problems but what’s important is how you deal with them. Pastorfrigor installed all the fridges and cabinets to programme and there has been great feedback on the fridge aisles where customers are liking the LED lights for example. The after-sales support has been excellent. We’ve found the whole team very helpful and looking forward to working with them again on more projects.”

Sewell on the Go

Cottingham

Customer: Sewell on the Go, Cottingham

Solutions: Kalifornia Ecovision

Features: Height reduction and low energy

Project overview

Sewell on the Go are a multi-award winning independent forecourt operator in Hull. The Cottingham store was due a refit including replacing the refrigeration and re-configuring the store to accommodate a Subway and larger food to go area with extra Coffee machines.

What did Pastorfrigor install?

Pastorfrigor GB provided low energy Kalifornia Ecovision cabinets with a Daikin Zeas refrigerated unit on this site for a number of key reasons. Firstly, in combination with the Daikin system the refrigeration package is very low energy, the store is in a built-up area so we managed to remove 5x condensing units and replaced them with just one which gained more space and reduced the noise level near the customer’s neighbour’s properties. Another key feature of the Kalifornia Ecovision H215 is the standard height reduction kit so we managed to get extra tall cases through a standard doorway.

What were the results?

The collaboration between Pastorfrigor GB and Daikin UK provided the retailer with a system that reduced the energy bills by 60% by the time the Subway cold-rooms, ovens and additional coffee machines where installed Sewell Cottingham’s energy bill is still lower that before the refit. The rear yard now has more space for storage and the noise level as reduced from over 90db to 65db. We also managed to hand the site over 6 hours early so the retailer could start trading earlier than expected.

Budgens Abridge

North London / Essex

Customer: Budgens Abridge, North London / Essex

Solutions: Kalifornia, Genova, Retro-fit doors

Features: Convenience store range

Savings: 30% Energy Savings

Project overview

Goran is a fourth generation family retailer, who redeveloped his site into a 3,000sqft Budgens store in November 2017. After Budgens recommended PFGB, Goran decided to get in touch. “Our chiller space had quadrupled in size so we were nervous of our energy consumption – this was something I had been monitoring carefully for two years,” says Goran. “But Simon and the team at PFGB assured me that there would be energy savings.


What did Pastorfrigor install?

We installed our Kalifornia Ecovision multidecks and a Daikin Zeas condensing unit. “All we really did was change the refrigeration, as we had LED lighting already,” explains Goran. “Our new cabinets are fantastic.” The retailer also installed a temperature monitoring and alarm system. “We’ve found this very useful as it gives minute by minute temperature checks and it’s linked to the alarm so it means temperatures are constantly being monitored. “PFGB also recommended that we add doors to the chillers and this was a great idea,” adds Goran. “It means my customers are free to browse the aisles with ease.”

What were the results?

Remarkably, in spite of increasing their refrigeration by 120%, Goran’s energy costs are now a staggering 30% less – marking a £480 a month saving! “When investing in developing your store, you need to be really savvy and understand the payback time on any development,” he says. “We’ve felt that by working with PFGB that they have provided us with all the information we needed to make the right decision.” And would Goran recommend PFGB to other retailers? “I would highly recommend them. We had no problems with installation, and everything has worked.” His shoppers love the changes, too: “The feedback from customers has been really positive. They love it – especially as the store is no longer cold!”.

H Mart

Waterloo

Customer: Oseyo, Waterloo

Solutions: Filip AK

Features: Stainless Steel Food to Go

Project overview

H Mart are opening "Food to Go" stores in London under the "Oseyo" brand and provide Korean food on the go.

K Culture

The rise in popularity of Korean food and culture can be attributed to the ‘hallyu’ translated Korean wave. As South Korea became a more wealthy country, many of the Korean dramas and Korean pop music became popular overseas.

Now these dramas and Kpop videos rake in millions of views on social media such as YouTube, as well as the many Korean crocking channels such as Maangchi who has 1.67 million subscribers on YouTube. We have experience of this buzz of excitement for the culture and food at our stores and wish to expand and fill these interests.

What did Pastorfrigor install?

Filip 450 AK stainless steel integral multidecks with LED lighting, acrylic shelves and crisp baskets. These cabinets feature a polished Stainless Steel finish which really lifts the look and feel of the equipment. In May we plan to add a Stainless Steel Genova BT 2 Door to the store that will match the existing chilled equipment.

What were the results?

Korean food in the last couple of years has become incredibly popular with a surge in demand for Korean food and products. It is well known that Korean food which consists of many vegetables are healthy, which is why Koreans also have a long life expectancy. This has led to an increased interest in Korean food also. At this store, they sell everything from ingredients for Korean BBQ, soy sauces, Korean miso pastes to quick snacks and goodies for students. Pastorfrigor look forward to a long and healthy relationship with Oseyo sharing the passion for great store design and fantastic products.

Breakpoint

Tottenham Court Road

Customer: The Convenience Store, Tottenham Court Road

Solutions: Micro Channel

Features: Genova Panorama Micro channel

Savings: Huge energy savings over conventional system

Project overview

Amarjit took over this store in Tottenham Court Road, New Oxford street late 2017 and had been looking for some time for a refrigeration solution. To often he said retailer in London install remote plant but rarely get it serviced as it takes too much effort to organise with the landlords to get consent to access it. "Out of site, our of mind" is what he said so they only react when the equipment fails - which means loss of trade and very big repair bills. GRC Shopfitting carried out the shop fit and they suggested the Pastorfrigor solution so Amarjit came up to the Pastorfrigor showroom in Essex to take a look.

What did Pastorfrigor install?

We installed three Genova Panorama MC 2500 cases for BWS, Dairy and chilled snacks. The installation took just a few hours and the cabinets where up and running within hours so Amarjit could open his store sooner. To get his alcohol licence Amarjit required locks for the doors on his beers and wines cabinet along with a blind to inform customers that the section was closed, Pastorfrigor developed a solution for that and in addition have returned to supply a similar solution for the spirits section for him.

What were the results?

The result is a really lovely Central London Convenience store, right by a bus stop this store gets incredibly busy and its not surprising when you look at the great finish in the store. On entering the shop there are 2x 2500 cases on the right and you cannot hear them running (just 52 dBa) the glass doors with vertical LED lighting illuminate the product brilliantly further enhancing sales. Amarjit has said he would welcome any retailers in the London area to come over and take a look as seeing really is believing when it comes to the Genova Panorama MC cabinet. The perfect solution for your store!!

Select Convenience

Huddersfield Bus Station

Customer: JCR Limited, Huddersfield Bus Station

Solutions: Genova Panorama Micro Channel

Features: Genova Panorama Micro channel

Savings: Simple Installation combined with energy efficiency

Project overview

The Select Convenience store in Huddersfield Bus Station is run and owned by Jonathan James of JCR Limited. This store was due a refit and 5m of chilled dairy, drinks an snacks where required for this very busy store. Standard integral cabinet were simply not the solution as with such high footfall capacity and display area where key. With little chance of getting a remote solution in store the Genova Panorama MC cabinet looked to be the ideal solution.

What did Pastorfrigor install?

Pastorfrigor installed two Genova Panorama MC 2500 cases at H2160 multiplexed into a single run for chilled drinks, snacks and dairy products. The Genova Panorama MC is 48% more efficient that a standard glass door integral multidecks and up to 20% more efficient than a glass door remote case!

What were the results?

The installation took just a few hours so the shop fitter GRC Limited where able to complete the refit and get the store open to start trading. When you walk into this store the thing that surprises us still is that you cannot hear the cabinets running, we know the cabinets are plug-in but there is no running noise. We measured a background noise of 59Dba in the store and the cases run at 52Dba which is important in such a small store. No need to worry about the heat that comes from the cabinet either, these cases have nearly half the heat rejection that you would expect to get from a standard plug in cabinet. So if you have a challenging store, need to keep your store closure to a minimum and want to reduce your energy bills - choose the Genova Panorama as its the only solution!!
