PLUS distribution center Deventer reaches highest point

From the A1 motorway, the contours of the new PLUS fresh distribution center on the A1 Business Park in Deventer are becoming increasingly visible. Construction is progressing well, and last week the work was crowned with reaching the highest point.

The distribution center has a surface area of over 60,000 m2 and is being developed by HBC, a collaboration between HVBM Vastgoed and Bruil Bouw Groep. The PLUS and Coop stores will soon be supplied with fresh products from this building.

Sustainability plays an important role
Sustainability requirements played an important role in the development of the new distribution centre. The building and the surrounding grounds are designed in a circular and nature-inclusive way. The BREEAM Excellent design certificate was recently obtained based on the new 2020 BREEAM guidelines. When the building is completed, the entire roof will be equipped with a solar power installation consisting of more than 14,500 solar panels. This generates more energy than is consumed in the distribution center.

The new distribution center is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2024.
