François Minck, Deputy Managing Director for Industry at GA Smart Building and Gilbert Scholly, President of the Community of Communes of the Land of Barr, in the presence of Germain Lutz, Mayor of Valff, laid the first stone of a new property complex for Adam Boissons, a distributor of soft and alcoholic beverages.
A 3,000 m² storage hall comprising 8 metres of free height, 300 m² of office space, a 2,500 m² car park intended to store empty crates and pallets… All to be delivered on a turnkey basis within just five months from the start of the works. Such is the challenge which the GA Smart Building teams are ready to take up.
This contract follows on from an initial structure delivered by GA to Adam Boissons in 2014: “The construction of Adam Boissons’ headquarters in Guewenheim, in the Upper Rhine (68), went so well that Paul Adam, Chairman of Adam Boissons, commissioned us this year as designer-builder for a second building, this time in Valff, in the Lower Rhine”, explains Corinne Deiss, Grand Est Business Manager and Sales Manager at GA Smart Building.
Foundations able to sustain an overload of 3 tonnes per m²
In addition to the very short timeframe, this logistics real estate project called for an earthworks project, launched in early May. Geological surveys at the site, previously used for agriculture, had revealed a heterogeneous soil mix. The GA teams accordingly planned for foundations adapted to a slab likely to bear overloads of 3 tonnes per m².
A canopy to accommodate future expansion
The project’s other distinctive future lies in its evolutionary nature. Benefiting from a canopy structure, the building is protected in the same way as the rest of the roofing. “All we would have to do is add three façades to develop an extension to the existing structure”, says Corinne Deiss. An ingenious way of anticipating Adam Boissons’ future building.
