Voortman Steel Construction is once again helping to build a large distribution centre (DC). The new, sustainable building of car parts distributor Fource Logistics has an area of more than 50,000 m2. In assignment of Heembouw, we supply and assemble the steel structure and lay the floors of the DC, which consists of two halls and an office space.
The distribution centre at business park Oudeland in Berkel en Rodenrijs contains 49,000 m2 of warehouse space and 2,400 m2 of office space and will have a BREEAM Excellent qualification. The roof is fully equipped with solar panels, so that the building will be completely self-sufficient in terms of energy. The nickname "The Bridge" refers to the eye-catcher of the building, the central entrance on the first floor. The striking design is made by Heembouw Architects.
Half of the steel structure of the office has now been assembled. As a result, the contours of the unique central entrance are clearly visible. Approximately three-quarters of the steel structure of the warehouse has been assembled. Voortman expects to complete the work by mid-June. Fource Logistics will move into the new distribution centre at the end of this year.
