Goodman logistics centre extension
108 / 104 / 14.14 m
Nov. 2016 – July 2017
The logistics centre is an extension of the existing building (shallow foundations) constructed in 2005. The existing infrastructure can be used – although the site has separate road access – and the facility can be operated independently, accommodating up to two tenants. Owing to the subsoil conditions, the new building is set on pile foundations (approx. 3,500 screw piles) with two-layer consolidation. The design of the reinforced concrete structure, including mezzanine and stairwells, takes this into account. The roof at the annex axis (24 m) is realised as a steel structure to minimise additional loading on the existing building. The new building, including delivery area, is sealed in compliance with the German Water Resources Act (WHG) and equipped with bulkhead systems. An area of 5000 m² is fitted with narrow aisle shelving. Because hazardous goods are stored, large parts of the building are fitted not only with a sprinkler system and customised ventilation system but also with a foam extinguishing system that delivers foam throughout the building within 3 minutes. The sprinkler and control centre is located outside.
