Decathlon Hybrid Building
From now on, SPORTS will be written in capitals at Westfalenhütte!
The French sporting goods dealer, Decathlon, has become a new tenant at Garbe’s Westfalenhütte. With roughly 32,400 square meters, Dortmund will not only supply the branch stores for all of Northern Germany, but logistics for on-line commerce will also be processed on site. The lease for the hybrid building, which is equipped with some minor special features, will initially be for 10 years. The size of the site and the good connection to the transport network were decisive reasons for choosing the new Decathlon logistics centre.

|Warehouse floor space||29,500m2|
|Office space & socialising areas||1,500m2|

Services performed by Garbe for this project
LocationWestfalenhütte was particularly conducive to this new project because of the size of the site as well as the central location.
PlanningThe size of the site left us and the general contractor plenty of leeway and space to plan the hall.
ConsultacionIn order to design the logistics centre to be as efficient as possible, our customer's logistical requirements were analysed in detail and the property was laid out with these requirements in mind.
ConstructionThe logistics centre comprising almost 32,400 m² is being built in an 8-month construction phase so it will be ready for occupancy by the end of the year.
RevitalisationThe former ThyssenKrupp conversion area was already prepared for construction by the seller in 2009 so project implementation could start immediately.
ParticularsNot every customer wants normal lorry loading bays. Our ability to diverge from the norm, and how we use this trait to enlarge the hall area, is explained in the property view.
We are creating a hybrid building that will supply both the brick-and-mortar business as well as online customers
Further details of of the Decathlon facility
There are not only Loading Docks
The so-called “loadhouses”, which are installed like a sluice box around the front of the loading bay outside the building, serve not only to enlarge the storage area inside the hall, but they also contribute to energy savings.
Service is the most important thing!
And it is precisely for this reason that a service point with approximately 1,150 m² has been built on site for Decathlon – so they can carry out repairs in the shortest time possible.
Column Support-free Zone for incoming/outgoing Goods
No obstacles and more manoeuvring room for forklifts in the shipping and receiving area?! Building without column supports makes this possible.
