LV Warehouse Shanghai
PCE prepared a concept design for a new 42,500m2 distribution warehouse and logistics hub for the consolidation of several different client departments. The building was designed to accommodate drive in/out 40ft container deliveries with two floors of dedicated high-bay distribution storage located above. Offices, training facilities, repair workshops and other operations were located in rooftop structures overlooking a large landscaped roof deck. A solution using reinforced concrete for the basement and high-rack warehouse structure with a composite steel frame was developed for the upper floors to provide a lightweight solution for large areas of glass façade.
