Thermoflor provides Dutch expertise in green-sector construction in Scandinavia
Thermoflor is well known in the green sector for its construction of greenhouses for nurseries and garden centres. The company was for example responsible for the recent construction of the Norwegian garden centres Rosstad in Kristiansand and Hageland in Stord. What is less well known is that Thermoflor is also very active in the construction of logistic and processing facilities. A good example of the company’s activities in this field is the distribution centre that it has built for the Norwegian Fritzoe Planteskole in Larvik.
Multifunctional distribution centre
Fritzoe Planteskole is an intermediate station for exporters, flower suppliers and Norwegian buyers. The company wanted its distribution centre in Larvik to have a flexible layout. Several areas can be screened off to give the various logistic companies their own place in the building. At the centre of the building are the cold stores and three floors of offices. The processing areas have been built around them. A lot of attention has been paid to insulation to minimise the loss of energy. Kjetil Titlestad of Fritzoe Planteskole: “This multifunctional centre enables us to meet all our tenants’ requirements.“
Expertise and experience
Fritzoe supplies products to the Plantasjen chain of garden centres, for which Thermoflor has also built branches, e.g. in Kongsberg, Baerum, Stjordal, Asker and Skedsmo. For Svinningen AS in Asker Thermoflor has previously completed a project similar to that of Fritzoe, with solutions for flexible use of areas and savings in energy. It was because of the expertise gained in that project and the good experiences at Plantasjen that Thermoflor was so closely involved in designing the green logistic centre for Fritzoe.
Building in Scandinavia and the Baltic States
Thermoflor is a Dutch family business with worldwide experience in the turnkey construction of greenhouses, garden centres and logistic centres. The company manages everything - the design work, engineering, production and construction -itself, ensuring excellent reliability of delivery. Thermoflor is synonymous with high quality, thanks in part to its CE marking according to NEN-EN 1090 for all its building products. The company has been building in Scandinavia and the Baltic States for many years, during which time it has become familiar with the relevant local regulations. The Elmia Garden Fair of 29-30 September (stand C02:35) will offer Thermoflor a good opportunity to share its expertise with anyone interested in what it does.http://norge.thermoflor.com/
