Project description:
The building is a complex of two volumes - one high-rack warehouse with a height of 20 meters and a lower area with a height of 10 meters, in a part of which is built an intermediate level for offices. A basement area of 850 m2 is located under a part of the high-rack warehouse. The building is clad in white sandwich panels filled with polyurethane and mineral wool. The official part of the facade is designed with a curtain wall. The insulation of the roof is rigid mineral wool with PVC waterproof membrane on top.
The high-rack warehouse is equipped with racks whose last level for placement of pallets is elevation+ 15.40 m, the height of the pallets being 2.35 m. The warehouse is serviced by inductive forklifts that determine the small width of the corridors between the racks - only 185 cm. Nineteen truck loading ramps with rotating and telescopic tongues take care of loading and unloading. The floor is made of polished concrete and the construction is mixed – reinforced concrete columns up to elevation + 11.00 m and steel columns onwards to elevation + 20.00 m. The roof is metal – a nave steel structure composed of beams with a span of 23.00 meters, covered in high profile metal sheet.
In the lower part of the warehouse is located the intermediate level at elevation + 4.75 m, where we find separate offices, a server room, a kitchen and a rest area. This level is made of steel beams and sheet-concrete slab.
A basement with changing rooms and service premises for the warehouse staff, as well as technical premises – a boiler room, MDB, a diesel generator room and a sprinkler tank, is located in the southeastern part of the building at elevation -3.50 meters. The construction is completely solid concrete. Access to the basement is possible both through the internal staircase of the building and from the outside–an egress is built for this purpose.
