Site event on the future logistics platform of Transports Charvin, BBL Transport and Marichal Logistics
The new building, which is ideally located in the centre of road and motorway traffic routes and integrated into a European-wide logistics area, will enable the BBL Group to house its three companies under one roof and to enhance performance and quality. The building will extend over 18,000 m² and include 2 logistics units, 1 parcels unit, 1600 m² of offices and common areas on 3 floors. It will be certified BREEAM Good for its environmental performance. The premises were acquired prior to completion of construction (VEFA) by AEW.
One of the key challenges involved was to ensure that BBL Group's shipping customers continued to receive the same level of high-quality service as they had previously enjoyed. OpenBox won the tender based on its competitiveness and strong commitments, especially in terms of financial guarantees and lead times. The company was able to support its customer's real estate strategy and take the necessary risks to successfully complete the project.
Co Design&Build customarily enables project savings to be shared between OpenBox and its customer. For this project, Pierre Charvin requested that OpenBox substitute the sharing of savings for the refurbishment of the group's current building before the end of its lease.
