Fruit storage in a controlled atmosphere needs very precise control in each cold room with a continuous monitoring of the changes in temperature, relative humidity, CO2 and O2 rate. In order that the technical systems are able to comply with the design conditions, the civil engineering and the insulation must have been suitably designed and constructed, from the outset of the projects. The paper presents the points to be taken into account, notably metal framework, roofs, plant rooms, ventilation, flanged sheet work, ground loading, exterior water drainage, water tightness, etc. The need for good cooperation between the different development and management teams during the preparation of the plans and during the work is emphasised.
