Mediating client project developer and architect
After the purchase of the office supply business of the Samas Groep by Buhrmann, the new company’s task of building a new Distribution Centre was even more urgent since Samas had already outgrown their current site in Utrecht.
Groenewout had performed a location study for Dissam (Distribution Centre Samas) in 2000. Based on the recommendations of this report Dissam and later Corporate Express started negotiations with Almere.
After final decision for the city of Almere, Groenewout assisted Corporate Express in the process to develop a contract with a project developer. Groenewout’s role became that of mediator between Corporate Express, project developer HVBM and Architect Dedato.
- Completion of DC within strict time-schedule
- Smooth process in developing the contract
- Logistics operation was balanced with building requirements.
