FOOD LOGISTICS PLATFORM
Automated food logistics platform - Surface: 70 000 m²
- Client: Les Mousquetaires - Intermarché group
- Project management: AREP (representative), Agence Duthilleul (architect), Ingerop (engineering consulting company)
- Ongoing project
The Saint-Quentin-Fallavier project aims to create a last-generation, peri-urban food logistics platform for the Les Mousquetaires - Intermarché group.
The beauty of the project lies in the complexity of the programme encompassing a row of buildings of various heights having simple and legible functions and laid out on a joint podium. The lower level of the building houses the automated loading bays and the docks on a massive, linear and monolithic podium, which forms a unifying base for the whole volume and supports the warehouse facilities. The upper structures are cladded in an end-to-end single ribbed cloak of aluminium on which photovoltaic modules can be installed. The tinted double-skin facade has several roles: it acts as a building insulation device and provides facade ventilation as well as light and heat control.
