The construction of our new workshop, which was initially planned for the year 2000 when our storage yard “Platz 2000” was set up in the Harburger Straße in Tostedt, is now finally one step closer to reality. Due to massive complaints from the neighbors as well as the limited space available at our headquarter location in the Niedersachsenstraße, we have decided to shut down the current workshop as well as the remaining yard operations in the Niedersachsenstraße in 2017 and to build the necessary infrastructure on our “Platz 2000”.
For this purpose, we have prepared the building application documents for the construction of the new workshop and the storage and personnel facilities in cooperation with the engineering office “AZ Architekten”. The building application is expected to be submitted to the respective authorities in November 2016.
On a construction area of 1,500 m², workshop spaces with repair stations, maintenance pits for trucks, scissors lifts and a painting shop will be built. Of course this also includes the necessary oil supply and disposal systems, battery rooms and storage areas. In addition to that, new personnel facilities with a dirt trap, a breakfast room, showers and changing areas will be built on an area of 565 m².
We are currently planning on starting the construction works for the building in February 2017. According to schedule, these works should be finished in October 2017. We hope that the winter repair works 2017/2018 can already be carried out on the new premises.
