Facilities and quality

Ca. 18,000 sqm of floor space (completion end of 2016) were planned for construction, as well as 10,000 additional sqm of warehouse space on a total real estate of 54,700 sqm, divisible and starting at rental units of 1,300 sqm. Warehouse height was 10 to 13.5 m, storage height 9 m. Floor loading capacity of the warehouse was 7.5 t/sqm and 750 kg/sqm on the gallery level. Additionally, we provided a 7–12 m deep gallery level for storage and/or services areas or office spaces, gradual artificial light in the warehouse, a modern sprinkler system (VDS), and, upon request, ESFR, too. Unloading was designed with flexibility in mind, offering a dock leveler and ground-level gates, as well as optional WGK-3 storage or cold storage. We consistently observed ecological and operationally cost-effective construction methods, as well as sufficient parking spaces in accordance with parking regulations. Construction took place in accordance with the DGNB gold standard (German Sustainable Building Council).
