Warehouse expansion construction

November 06, 2018 5945 Views


Stryker European Supply Chain Services operates its Distribution Center in Venlo. Stryker is a fast growing medical device company, based in the USA.


Stryker has outgrown the facility that was constructed in 2010 and assigned Groenewout to manage the design & realization of a 10.000 m² of warehouse expansion.

In parallel Groenewout designed an advanced automated goods-to-person system to be fitted in the new warehouse.


Groenewout managed the various phases/aspects of the project

  • Architectural & technical design
  • BREEAM certification
  • Building permit
  • Tendering & contracting main parties
  • Realization
  • Hand-over & commissioning

Some technical specifications are different from regular warehouses, e.g. dock doors, waste area and HVAC systems.


  • Stryker preferred to have one party be accountable for the whole project, to ensure an integrated design and efficient project communication
  • The project was completed in time and within budget.
