New logistics building at Brussels Airport

Construction News from Brussels Airport -  The airport has unveiled its newest logistics building at Brucargo West. The new complex with 50,000m² of warehouses, 10,000m² of office space and direct airside access is quite impressive.

The driving principle in the building’s design? Sustainability! The building is energy & water efficient. Part of the roof surface is laid out as a green roof while the entire surface is designed to be fitted out with solar panels in the future and the building is equipped with LED lighting. Rain gardens and infiltration wells improve rainwater infiltration and rainwater pits were installed for harvesting and reusing rainwater. Furthermore, depending on the usage and orientation, rooms are heated or cooled by heat pumps, which also supply the climate ceilings in the offices.

The new logistics building is also especially suitable for the handling of pharma, and in particular vaccines, which is one of the niche markets we have specialised in and for which Brussels Airport is recognised as one of the leading airports in the world.

The new building that accommodates the offices & warehouses of Expeditors, Kuehne+Nagel and Worldwide Flight Services (WFS), is a true landmark on the Brussels Airport site, with a sleek, modern and eco-friendly architectural touch!
