Using sensors produced by the company SICK AG, devices can be operated, people are protected from accidents and environmental damage can be avoided. SICK AG has more than 50 subsidiaries and ranks among the industry leaders in this sector with 7,417 employees all over the world.
The SICK AG logistics center has reached its limits through the company's continuous growth. In 2011, the company decided to build a new logistics center in the local surroundings of Waldkirch.
Milestones of realisation
As an integrated planning company, agiplan took over the responsibility for planning and architecture, technical building services, supporting structure, outdoor facilities, fire and noise protection, soil expertise and measurement.
Together with the client, the planning and realisation of the modern, energetic building concept took place as co-ordinated co-operation of all involved, including coordination with authorities to consider any restrictions.
The logistics centre meets the newest ecological standards with regard to technology and energy efficiency.
The optimisation of the construction system has led to modular construction, with a wooden supporting framework and open-plan office spaces for incoming goods, administration and general management. The building has a self-sufficient technology with energy supply from photovoltaics and conveyor technology.
The modern logistics centre is a highlight from an architectural and technological perspective. Thomas Henkel, project manager and Stefan Keiderling, project manager of SICK AG say: "The new logistics centre is a flagship project - for sure not just for SICK."
