Distinct design: very narrow warehouse aisles and a clear height of 17.7 m

The project’s design complied with the functional needs of the investor and the technical requirements of the electric pickers that were ordered for the warehouse. The main structure of the building consists of both steel and concrete. We used concrete columns up to 10 m and steel structures from 10 m to 20 m and created very narrow warehouse aisles, which reach a clear height of 17.7 m.

Exceptional office section with Japanese garden

The interior design of the office section is exceptional for a logistics facility. While the design combines industrial and modern architecture, employee comfort was also a key aspect: the project incorporates a recreational area with an internal garden as well as appealing changing rooms and common spaces.
