Construction of new 'Green Trade Centre' Waterdrinker in Aalsmeer (NL)
Waterdrinker in the Dutch town of Aalsmeer has given the go-ahead for the construction of a Green Trade Center, to be completed by the end of this year.
The Green Trade Center will be Waterdrinker’s flagship, in which it is going to meet the requirements of its European customers together with its suppliers.
Under the supervision of the contractor Boele & van Eesteren, Thermoflor is going to build the greenhouse complex, which will comprise wide-span greenhouses with an area of 17,000 m2 executed with modern use of colours and integrated sunscreens.
This trade centre based on the shop-in-shop principle will be a one-stop-shopping experience for buyers and suppliers of green products all over Europe. A pioneering and inspiring place where retailers and suppliers of flowers, plants and accessories can meet one another, and above all a centre where you’ll find everything you need to tempt consumers to buy more flowers and plants. This is the principle behind the Green Trade Center: “to join forces to bring consumers happiness and health.”
The building, with a total area of 25,000 m2, will comprise cold rooms, heated and unheated greenhouses, departments for hardware and accessories and an Inspiration & Knowledge House.
