Story

Today the site comprises 5,000 m² of warehouses (on a total area of 7,655 m²) with a storage capacity of 6,600 pallets. The warehouse now has eight output boxes (previously 3) and 3 input boxes. Each box was fitted with a waiting area, which increases efficiency and doubles export potential.

The existing concrete frame construction was completely dismantled and integrated into the new building, which consists of steel and wood. The walls of the hall were covered with metal, a nice contrast with the wood cladding of the office section. With the importance of hygiene in the food industry in mind, the hall was finished in a very clean manner: clear structural shapes such as laminated beams and concrete columns, polished concrete, and white colour finish.
