Innnes, the leading importer and wholesaler of high-quality food products in Iceland, is building a new distribution center in Reykjavik. The new warehouse will apart from an office area have 3 different temperature zones for food storage: deep-freeze (-25 °C), fresh and dried products. The warehouse will run with a combination of manual and automated systems with the use of advanced conveyors and full-automatic shuttle solutions. Most of the automation will be used in the deep-freeze and dried goods area.
The building with 140x60x33 m outer geometry made of steel and in-situ concrete structure will offer/accommodate 15,055 m² of usage area. In total 5700 tonnes of steel will be used for the building construction: 4000 tonnes and 700 tonnes for main load bearing structure of warehouse and office parts respectively, and 1000 tonnes for the secondary steel such as walkways, platforms, equipment support and pipe rack support.
Krabbenhøft & Ingolfsson is in charge of 3rd party verification of the main steel structure, as well as the design of a large portion of the secondary steel. K&I is responsible for production of all GA drawings for the steel structure. The main structural steel design was handled by 4D design, structural concrete design by Ferill and the warehouse logistics and storage system was designed by SSI Schäfer.
