Rimi – Logistics centre
One of the branches of ICA retail company - Rimi Baltic is widened by a new building for logistics and officing purposes in the city of Riga. In summary, given the area of the existing store the new building will exceed 70 000 m2 of used floors. And this expansion will make Rimi store the largest retail market place in Baltic region built since the 90s.
The structure itself is a variety of steel roof elements supported by cast-in concrete columns with cladding walls between them. The main challenge with this project was obviously the sheer size of the building. We had more than 15 phases for production documentation and many separate packages for different manufacturing facilities. In addition, we tried a new strategy of drawings preparation that was required by modern CNC machinery and digital assembling software.
