The areas offer space for 150,000 pallets and around 600 parking spaces were created, which can be reached via a sky bridge. The building has been awarded the DGNB Gold sustainability certificate and also offers a fitness and yoga area as well as a roof terrace for employees. The construction company Goldbeck was responsible for the construction measures as general contractor. In addition, SEGRO was supported in project management by the engineering office for construction management dörpinghaus & divisek.
“With these new spaces, we can continue our Europe-wide expansion while remaining true to our home region. The high-quality equipment of the areas is particularly important to us, with which we can offer our employees an optimal working environment," says Martin Menz, founder and managing director of Relaxdays.
