The thermal envelope is outside of the steel framing so the steel will go through the temperature swing of the freezer. The envelope includes insulated wall panels, roof insulation above the deck and slab insulation below the floor. It is basically one big room that is isolated from the surround structure with expansion joints.

A simple question. Shouldn’t the freezer space be insulated and isolated from the primary building structure so that it doesn’t have any significant influence on the structure, other than maybe an integrated floor slab?

I’m working on a freezer facility. The primary
framing is steel. It is approximately 275’ x 325’.
I’m looking at ‘X’ bracing for wind loads. Seismic is
small in comparison. It is being built in
I’m hoping there are others who can give me insight into freezer building bracing systems that can accommodate the large temperature swings. I’m also looking for resource on the design of freezer facilities from a structural standpoint. I’ve looked through SEAInt archives and found information on the foundation, slab, etc., but not the steel framing. I did a search of AISC site and didn’t find anything. Are there any good articles or books on freezer building design, particularly the structure?
Thanks for your help.
