Cold room caters for historic London house

Spencer-HouseUK: A surge of interest in holding events in one of London’s finest historic residences has prompted the owners to hire a new cold room from Cold Store Rentals.

Spencer House in London’s St James’s is recognised as one of the most sumptuous private residences ever built in London and its finest surviving eighteenth-century town house.

Built between 1756-1766 for John, first Earl Spencer, an ancestor of Diana, Princess of Wales, Spencer House has recently experienced a surge in interest for its hire facilities which cater for up to 450 people at one time. 

Cold Store Rentals provided a Viessmann room with Zanotti refrigeration system and bespoke racking through Shelfspan, and a one year service and warranty package.

“We had been renting a cold room through Cold Store Rentals’ sister company, Ice House Hire, for two years, and decided that a new bespoke cold room would be worth the capital investment this time,” explained Spencer House events director Chris Stallworthy.

Cold Store Rentals delivered and fully commissioned the room within five hours with minimal disruption to the site.

“The racking inside the new unit has been specially configured to offer maximum internal storage capacity, as well as low level storage,” commented  Cold Store Rentals director Steve Prior. “Should there be another large-scale event in London such as the 2012 Olympics, Spencer House will be ready for the demand that it brings.” 

The new cold room maximises the size of the out-building with a taller, special corner door which gives a larger capacity than the previous hire units.
