Bomi Group, a market leader in the biomedical logistics sector and the management of high technology healthcare products, closed the purchase of the development area of 33,700 sq metres in the municipality of Spino d’Adda in the province of Cremona where the ONE ROOF PROJECT 4.0 will go into action.
Bomi will construct its new warehouse within 20 km of the regional capital, in a location that is at the focal hub of Bomi’s core business and the main arterial routes connecting the North and South of the country.
The ONE ROOF 4.0 project involves the creation of a new fully temperature controlled Headquarters, capable of maintaining specific localised temperature ranges in different zones within the structure. The operating area of about 18,500 sq metres, illustrated in the following images, will be both a state-of-the-art logistics hub for the gathering together and warehousing of Healthcare products and a national and international transport hub.
The achievement of economic, social and environmental Corporate Sustainability is a cornerstone of Bomi’s business strategy and the ONE ROOF 4.0 project is a full expression of its aims through:
- Investment in automation and robotics;
- The realisation of avant-guard projects which are “tailor-made” for the Healthcare sector and control of Cold Chain logistics;
- Investment in high-efficiency energy solutions, in the utilisation of energy from renewable sources and in improving the energy efficiency of its production plant;
- Full integration with the principal transport hub and a general improvement in performance;
- The optimisation of structural costs.
The Spino d’Adda warehouse, which will be operational by the end of 2019, has been designed to ensure the maximum energy independence of the structure, minimising consumption and therefore the emission of CO2 into the atmosphere.
The design provides for thermal insulation of the roof cladding and the building envelope, the presence of a photovoltaic plant and geothermic plant fed by groundwater for the production and utilisation of clean and renewable energy. The plans also include the creation of a “park within the company”, with green zones equipped for the use of all staff and co-workers, and construction of a highway junction with the aim of avoiding traffic congestion in the town.
The efficiency of the plant will be guaranteed by the selection of avant-garde products, with performance indices that are amongst the highest currently available on the market.
The entire warehouse will also be designed with FM Global compliant structural elements and plant characterised by a high degree of mechanical resistance to fire.
Marco Ruini, Chief Executive Officer of Bomi Italia S.p.A. stated: “The ONE ROOF 4.0 project will enable Bomi Group to make a significant step forward towards economic, environmental and corporate sustainability. The new warehouse will be able to boast highly technological contents within an innovative and efficient structure, a uniquely valuable proposition in our core market.”
