Sustainable construction for curtain packaging

Posted on: 11 June 2020

As a strategic partner of construction company Heembouw, Pelecon calculated and drew the construction for the new building of Hordijk Verpakkingen. This concerns a new industrial hall, directly opposite the existing location on the Daalderweg in Zaandam. The hall built in steel has a surface of 22,500 m2, the office area comprises 1,300 m2.

“For this project, we calculated and drawn the entire construction, both the foundation and the superstructure of steel,” says Piet Peters, Consultant at Pelecon. “Based on this, the steel suppliers and the supplier of the hollow core slabs made their own working drawings and laying plans. We have fully worked out the pile plan and the foundation. What is special about the project is the office with the large roof. In consultation with the architect, we designed the construction for this with its very own character. ”

Piet continues: “large black braces have been installed to realize this overhang. “Another striking aspect is the constructive distinction made in the production hall, between the production part and the distribution part. The columns in the production area are twice as far apart as those in the distribution area. ”

“This is how we build as economically and therefore as sustainably as possible, which is of course desirable as a sustainable building like this.”
