After 16 months of construction, Germany's first Positive Footprint Wearhouse is almost complete. With the innovative logistics property "Positive Footprint Wearhouse", the Dutch project developer Delta Development not only brings the denim leader Levi Strauss & Co. to the region, but at the same time realizes the first logistics space in Germany that meets the Cradle-to-Cradle® sustainability standard. The new logistics property on the revitalized mining site, which will serve as a distribution center for the Levi Strauss fashion brand for a rental period of 20 years, covers approximately 70,000 m². The fulfillment center is characterized above all by the innovative Cradle to Cradle® approach.
"I am delighted that we can join you here in Dorsten today to celebrate the performance progress made to date by all those involved," said Edwin Meijerink, Managing Director of Delta Development. "Levi Strauss & Co. is rewriting logistics with this groundbreaking project: in keeping with the times and with an eye on later generations. And we are certain that the Positive Footprint Wearhouse will not remain an exception, but will become the new industry benchmark and establish a new mindset."
A strong team for the logistics of tomorrow
"Driving innovation and setting new standards in future-oriented construction requires two things above all: Expertise and motivation," said Meijerink. "With Drees & Sommer in project control, Bremer BAU as general contractor and the team of architects from Quadrant4 and Phase5, as well as other partners, we have found the perfect team for the Positive Footprint Wearhouse." The highest level of expertise, which was evident not least in the implementation: The C2C center has, among other things, a material database for efficient recycling, maximum material health, sustainable energy and resource management, and a "Human Centered Design".
