In the Southern Georgia town of Savannah the Oglethorpe Charter School continues to prepare for its move to their new building (rendering pictured above) which is slated to take place for the start-up of the 2013-2014 school year.  A part of the new school’s cafeteria is the 19’7” x 19’9” x 8’6” high Thermo-Kool walk-in cooler/freezer combination which is pictured inset above as it awaits final quality control inspection before shipping to the job site.  The walk-in exemplified Thermo-Kool’s unique design capability of manufacturing in 1” panel increments to accommodate the actual size requirements in order to maximize storage capacity.  The walk-in package included stainless steel interior and exterior doors with 14” x 24” heated peep windows and  three hinges per door, vinyl swing doors, temperature alarms/light managers and to ensure maximum illumination on the interior the walk-in a white stucco aluminum ceiling and fluorescent light fixtures were included.  A complete remote preassembled refrigeration package was also included in the project.

“The Oglethorpe Charter School is the first start-up charter middle school in the state of Georgia.  The school was founded in August of 1999.  The school’s vision statement boasts Oglethorpe Charter School aspires to be the middle school of choice where students experience and realize their maximum potential through an innovative and dynamic learning environment.” (Source: www.oglethorpecharter.org)
