IDEC, which specialises in the design and construction of turnkey projects for the logistics, industrial and service sectors, has just begun work on a multi-temperature warehouse for the POMONA Group in Noyal sur Vilaine (Ille-et-Vilaine). From next summer, this project will be home to TERRE AZUR, a subsidiary of the group specialising in the distribution of fruit and vegetables and seafood.
Another joint project between the POMONA Group and IDEC
The POMONA Group, a leading player in the distribution of food, has just renewed its confidence in IDEC to design and build its new business premises in Noyal sur Vilaine. This latest joint project underlines the strong relationship between the two companies after several successful constructions, such as the delivery of a 7500m² warehouse in Rezé last year and two other operations covering 17,000 m² in Wissous (Essonne) and 5200 m² in Valenton (Val de Marne) in 2016.
Designed by IDEC
The IDEC teams worked alongside the POMONA Group from the start of the project. Based around some very detailed specifications, IDEC’s in-house team took care of the overall design of the building. Among the major challenges there was the production of the refrigeration required, which is essential to guarantee that the food is stored well, and the separation into different areas of the seafood and the constraints linked to salt levels.
6200 m² of storage space and 1700 m² of offices
This project with a total surface of 7900 m² is based around a zone dedicated to storing food products. 2400 m² are given over to the storage of fruit and vegetables, 2200 m² to the bays, where the food is loaded and unloaded and 900 m² to the seafood area. The latter is equipped with special coatings and coverings and stainless steel furniture. 700 m² are used for the equipment areas, the charging area and and the cooling units. 1700 m² will be home to TERRE AZUR’s administrative work. A fuel station and truck washing area complete the project.
8 months of work
The construction of this project kept IDEC’s building staff busy for eight months. After the first sod was turned last month, the work managers will now be in charge of the laying the pad, the foundations and then the frame. The 7900 m² building is due to be handed over in late August.
