Coop No Food - Prato - Italy
The new Coop Italia logistics pole, a "green" depot created to supply the non food departments of 1400 stores all over Italy, has been in operation since January 2010. The facility is a fine example of logistical rationalisation and is considered at the environmental state of the art, to the point where its sustainable design criteria have been taken as benchmark for all the latest developments. The new building occupies an area of about 100,000 m2 and comprises a warehouse of about 50,000 m2, an office building of about 7700 m2 and more than 35,000 m2 of loading yards and parking areas. The outside of the building has been finished with a ventilated curtain wall of “Statuario Venato” slabs from the FMG Fabbrica Marmi e Graniti “Marmi” collection.
