The Matrix Group has engineering mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems for the Milwaukee based Roundy’s food stores built throughout the Midwest. Matrix was requested to create LEED Silver Certified store system designs as a basis for all future constructed projects.
Special attention was given to control humidity within each store to prevent condensation and frost from forming on refrigerated cases and floor surfaces. An energy reclaim system was designed to capture waste heat from the central plant refrigeration system to create domestic hot water. A vacuum plumbing system was designed for a north Milwaukee store to accommodate the transformation of a big-box hardware store to a Roundy’s grocery store without extensive concrete floor removal.
The Roundy’s brand that Matrix has provided engineering services for include: Pick ‘n Save, Rainbow Foods, Metro Market, Copp’s, and Mariano’s.
