The DC NewLogic III at business park ‘Het Laar’ in Tilburg is on its way to becoming the most sustainable DC in Europe. The gas-free logistics center which is realized for DOKVAST has received the BREEAM Outstanding design certificate this week. Through the use of smart technology and sustainable materials, the new head office of Rhenus Contract Logistics achieved a score of no less than 98.48%. The DC, which is called “The Tube”, can thus become the most sustainable DC in Europe.
“With the arrival of NewLogic III – with the nickname The Tube – Tilburg is a new icon richer,” says Jos Klanderman, managing director of DOKVAST. Not only the futuristic design is striking, but also the high BREEAM score.
High BREEAM score
Klanderman is therefore very pleased with the result: ‘We have almost achieved the maximum score for all categories. We always fly the ‘energy’ category from the Trias Energetica. We provide an airtight outer shell, use sustainably generated energy with solar panels and we use fossil fuels efficiently. “In addition, the use of sustainable materials, automatically dimming LED lighting, triple insulating glass, extra insulation of roofs, a heat pump and E- boilers contributed to the high BREEAM certification.
