Agora Group (BE)
No less than nineteen metres is the width of the central roof that turns this wholesale centre into such an eye-catcher. Thermoflor developed the design and logistic layout in close consultation with the Agora Group. The group exploits a chain of cash & carry establishments in Belgium and France catering for florists and garden centres. The Agora Group is renowned for its professional organisation and its strong focus on service. The well-thought-out design includes a covered customer car park where the vulnerable products can be loaded protected from the elements. Customers can choose what they want at their leisure in the large cooled cut-flower department or the spacious plant conservatory. There is also a large department specialising in florists’ requirements.
Long negotiations between the customer, the architect and Thermoflor preceded the approval of the definitive project. Particularly beautiful are the curved trusses that are visible in the main roof. With this project the Agora Group shows that it has great faith in the future and in its own abilities. That’s definitely worth a compliment in these hard times!
