A NewLogic III distribution centre has been built in the south of the Netherlands. This futuristic building has received a 'BREEAM outstanding' classification and was constructed using Derako International's solid wood ceiling and wall system. The front part of the distribution centre, which contains the offices and loading docks, is known as the 'Tube'. This shape typifies the appearance on the outside, while, in the entrance, the curved solid wooden walls run directly into the ceilings, creating a unique experience inside the building.
Derako has supplied over 1,000m2 of a solid wood linear system for this project, executed in European oak. Grey non-woven tissue is fitted between the planks, which not only matches the colour scheme of the building but also improves the acoustics in the room. The Derako systems are C2C Silvercertified and make a direct contribution to obtaining credits within BREEAM. With a score of 98.5%, this building has obtained a 'BREEAM outstanding' classification. This has placed the NewLogic III distribution centre among the most sustainable in Europe.
Derako also worked out the systems in advance to their implementation in full detail and supplied them in a prefabricated form. Access hatches were created and the integration of the light fittings was ensured through adaptations to the system and by supplying additional clips. The Derako ceiling, wall and facade systems are always custom-made project solutions designed by the architect in charge.
