In summer, the French Zolux group wants to open a new logistics facility Ablaincourt-Pressoir in the ZAC Haute Picardie, which was designed by Apside Architecture. The project is devoted to its subsidiary Saint-Bernard, that is focussed on manufacturing and distributing products for the home, comfort, hygiene and health of pets. The location covers 12 500 m² and is located directly by the A1 motorway.
“Our teams were able to adapt quickly in order to increase the storage area (from the initial 6 000 m² to 12 500 m²) to meet our client’s expectations and growth,” explains Claire Rousseau at GSE, who is in charge of the construction of the new complex.
The building will meet the latest environmental demands. The facility will include several features for the employees like an relaxation room opening onto an outdoor terrace as well as to obtain the BiodiverCity label.
“Our company is committed to a major CSR initiative called Horizon, which is based on three pillars: Good for my animal, Good in my job and Better for my planet. This is why we wanted to design a site where the quality of life at work, environmental quality and biodiversity are at the heart of the project,” explains Damien Thomas, CEO of Saint-Bernard.
