Builder Mörk Bau GmbH & Co. KG from Leonberg (Germany), built this 5,500 m² logistics center for wholesale company Völker GmbH from Holzgerlingen within 6 months. The building, in Stuttgart-Herrenberg, is used for office, purchasing, storage and distribution activities.
Völker GmbH outgrew its existing centralised facility for office, logistics, storage and distribution. Proprietor Waldemar Völker decided to create an entirely new combined headquarters and logistics complex and awarded the commission to architect Josef Pencz.
The building is fully equipped with modern loading and unloading facilities and has high level racking for storage to ensure optimum utilisation of the available floor space. The building is clad in classic LPA Wall System and LPI Inside Sheeting, colour grey aluminium, while the LPR1000 roof is provided with more than 190 translucent panels.
To achieve a restful ambient light level with the building and to avoid any excessive development of heat, the skylights have a dark shading. The building was completed 2 weeks earlier than planned. The customer was so satisfied with the overall performance of the construction team that he gave a pallet of vodka as a gift to Builder Mörk Bau GmbH & Co. KG!
