Fire loading update
Sandvik is a Swedish engineering group in mining and rock excavation, metal-cutting and materials technology. From their 13.500 m² distribution center in Venlo they distribute over 5.500 different products.
The distribution center in Venlo has two warehouse tents due to the lack of space in the warehouse itself. Because Sandvik changed their assortment in 2019, they asked Groenewout to update the fire loading and to verify if the fire loading still meets the compartmentalization requirements stated in ‘Bouwbesluit 2012’.
- Update of the actual fire load calculation.
- Building/documents in compliance with regulations and for discussion with the authorities.
