Grupo Ferrer warehouse
Sant Feliu de Buixalleu, Barcelona, Spain
Tag: LEED certification
Rating System: LEED for New Construction, v2.2
Status: LEED Silver
Area: 13.000 sqm
The warehouse design and construction to meet LEED Silver requirements was a big challenge. The special conditions needed to preserve the pharmaceutical products as well as the combination with other uses (offices, loading docks, etc) presented some difficulties to solve when designign the ventilation and thermal systems.
Furthermore, the building is next to a natural area which means that the construction process required special care in every aspect to minimize the impact in the surrounding area.
A greenroof was installed to help thermal control, rainwater management and host biodiversity.
The warehouse finished the application process in 2013, obtaining the LEED Silver award.
