Jysk is a Danish retail chain that sells household products such as mattresses, furniture and interior items. Jysk is the largest internationally operating Danish retailer, with 3,000 Jysk stores in 52 countries, including the Netherlands for 15 years.
Because Jysk’s share in the Dutch market is growing, they are going to build a large distribution center in The Nederlands. Pelecon joins a compact team of specialists who are preparing and executing this step with Jysk. Both in the run-up to the project, during the choice of location and during the preparation of the construction itself, we advise Jysk on all constructive issues.
We are proud to welcome Jysk as a new client and look forward to an inspiring design and construction process.

Since 2018 we have been involved in the renovation of hotel/restaurant Van der Valk in Gorinchem. Our client wanted to repurpose and renovate the building. The existing building with the characteristic tent roofs consisted of a restaurant on the ground floor with kitchens and rooms for large groups on the first floor.
The demolition of the characteristic roof construction and clever calculations by our engineering office made it possible to install two new floors on the first floor. Light, prefabricated units were chosen that could be installed complete with interior in one go. By making use of the reserve bearing capacity of the foundation, this was possible without additional piles! Because the dimensions of the hotel rooms were different from the column structure on the ground floor, a steel frame was placed on the first floor. Now we are preparing another extension of the hotel. This will be completely new, but with the same prefabricated units.
PLOEGER LOGISTICS EXTENDS ITS WAREHOUSE IN HARDERWIJK FURTHER WITH ANOTHER 11,220 M² GFA. ON THE BELLSTRAAT, THE LOGISTICS SERVICE PROVIDER HAS TO BUILD THESE EXTRA SQUARE METERS TO MEET THE GROWING DEMAND FROM ITS EXISTING AND NEW CLIENTS. AS THE MAIN CONSTRUCTOR, PELECON WORKS ON THIS ASSIGNMENT FROM DESIGN TO EXECUTION.
When construction is finished at the end of 2021, Ploeger will have a hypermodern warehouse. This brings the total capacity at two locations in Harderwijk to more than 55,000 pallet places. Just like the existing warehouses of Ploeger Logistics, this new warehouse is energy neutral. Something that completely fits their mission and vision. This extension therefore meets high BREEAM requirements. The entire warehouse will even be the most sustainable in the region!
Our constructive design naturally takes Ploeger’s sustainability ambitions into account. The roofs are able to support a large number of solar panels and the very economical construction ensures minimal use of materials.
A unique challenge for Pelecon was the question of how the foundation could be optimized and how the total logistics building could be built in three phases. The construction of phase 1 was already prepared for the expansions. Looking back on the advice, we are satisfied with the result. We will remain involved in the controlling role until the end of 2021, we strive for an equally satisfied view of the end result.
