GPO, A TYLin Company, developed the preliminary and detailed design and provided construction supervision for the Decathlon Continental Supply Center in Barcelona, Spain.
Constructed in the middle of the COVID pandemic, Decathlon’s Continental Supply Center, with more than 95,000 m2, is the distribution center of the largest brand in Europe. The project earned the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification. It is only the fourth industrial building in the world with this qualification and the one with the highest score within the warehouse and logistics sector.
The center was built in the ZALPort of Barcelona, the intermodal logistics platform owned by the Port of Barcelona. From here, it will distribute its products to regional warehouses in southern Europe.
- The project was developed with Building Information Modeling (BIM) methodology which allowed the team to anticipate decisions on site and have more precise execution control.
- The project was unique, not only because of the dimensions and the surrounding conditions, but because of the high-quality standards.
