The new building is laid out as a detached building.
It consists of an automatic high bay warehouse for the storage of goods, a three floor low bay warehouse for the handling of the goods, an office block with offices and social facilities and a technical block with offices and technical facilities.
High bay warehouse 12.470 m²
Low bay warehouse 23.730 m²
Equipment tower 3.800 m²
Equipment planning tower 870 m²
The lay-out of the new building aims at durable use of space. Special attention is given to possible future extensions of the different building and infrastructure sections.
Between the new building and the existing Footwear 2 building 3 high bay compartments with manually operated cranes can still be built.
Design and colour use of the existing buildings were used as a starting point for the new building.
The building had to meet stringent requirements concerning energy consumption, interior climate quality, comfort, maintenance ease, ecological foot print …
In the design special attention was focused on energy-saving measures in order to reduce the energy use of the installations to a minimum.
