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, which was completed by the end of 2017.
The Green Trade Center is Waterdrinker’s flagship, in which it meets the requirements of its European customers together with its suppliers.
Under the supervision of the contractor Boele & van Eesteren, Thermoflor has been building the greenhouse complex, which comprises 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 is 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, comprises cold rooms, heated and unheated greenhouses, departments for hardware and accessories and an Inspiration & Knowledge House.
