Lidl France has awarded a contract to a consortium made up of Vinci Construction and Vinci Energies subsidiaries to build a logistics hub and offices for its regional headquarters in Saint-Augustin, located in the Pas-de-Calais region of northern France.
Worth about €79m, the contract covers the building of 55,000 sq m of warehouse and cold storage facilities and 4,000 sq m of office space.
Construction is scheduled to last 22 months.
Lidl wants a a BREEAM Very Good rating, so Vinci will use low-carbon concrete and cover the roof with 8,700 sq m of photovoltaic roofing.
Vinci said these and other measures would prevent at least 5,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions on the project.
Carrying out the project are CBI, Sogea Caroni, GTM Hallé, Menard and Eurovia – subsidiaries of Vinci Construction – and CEF, a subsidiary of Vinci Energies.
