New logistics and service center Rednitzhembach
Construction of a new logistics and service centre covering a plot of 35,000 square metres started in autumn 2021 in Rednitzhembach to the south of Nuremberg. Among other aspects, an automated high-bay warehouse, an automated small parts warehouse, logistics areas for order picking, incoming and outgoing goods in addition to high-quality office space and administrative areas with a swish customer and visitor area. The construction project also includes a gatehouse and car park, while the planning process included a special emphasis on the conservation of resources and sustainability. The German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) has already issued a Gold level pre-certification for the new building. Heating for the building will be generated from two wood chip boilers, while a significant portion of the electricity requirement will be covered by a photovoltaic (PV) system installed on the roof of the high-bay warehouse. A living green roof will additionally cover the majority of roof space. With the construction of the new logistics and service centre, the uvex group is also building the order picking facility and gatekeeper building in line with the highly energy-efficient KfW40 standard. This means that they will use 60% less energy than a conventional new building. The construction project, including energy planning and construction supervision, was deliberately carried out with regional partners. The same also applies to the commissioning of all trades involved in construction.
