Hans Kohler AG’s new warehouse and logistics building in Dietikon consists of a fully auto-mated high-bay pallet warehouse (HBW) for 6,500 pallets, an automated small-parts ware-house (ASPW) for 22,000 containers, a three-story projecting entrance building with under-ground car park and two order-picking levels as well as an office tower situated on the side.
Two-way flat slabs and joist ceilings constructed of in-situ concrete form the supporting struc-ture of the highly stressed floor slabs of the projecting entrance building, while the roof of the projecting entrance building and the ASPW was realised as a light steel structure. The high-bay warehouse was constructed as a rack-supported building. Especially because of the high-bay warehouse being very susceptible to settling, the entire building's foundation was built on driven piles in Limmat River crushed rock, which has good load-bearing capability.
