Modulo used in foundations of American E-commerce company’s logistic center, Bergamo, Italy
Recently, 3600 sqm. of Geoplast’s Modulo h45 were chosen in Casirate D’Adda near Bergamo, in Northern Italy for the elevation of the foundations of the new logistic center of a famous American e-commerce company.
The new hub will extend over a surface of 34.000 sqm. and will be structured to manage the storage and sorting of goods already in stock, in order to reduce delivery times and support independent companies that decide to sell by using the distribution network offered by the company.
Modulo was ideal for this projects because it permitted the physical separation of the building from the ground, with just a single pour of the beams and the floor.
In fact, it allowed:
- Stability and excellent seismic resistance;
- An excellent ventilation of the whole structure;
- An optimal thermal insulation, thanks to the control of natural convection;
- An easier maintenance and accessibility of plumbing and electric systems.
This logistics center foundations, due to the activities is will host, will now be able of supporting heavy loads, thanks to the strong ribbed foundation slabs created with Modulo.
The monolithic structure will easily resist both static and dynamic loads, also allowing the creation of technical rooms for the passage of underground utilities.
