Transform an old site into an 80,000 m² logistical loading/unloading point? And this in just a few months’ time? A challenge that Aannemingsbedrijf Aertssen gladly - and successfully - accepted.

A big job awaited Aannemingsbedrijf Aertssen this summer: turning the former DHL site along the sea channel in Grimbergen into an immense logistical hub for Caterpillar Distribution Services Europe. And that in just a couple of months’ time.

Demolition, construction and describing the location status
Aertssen assiduously assumed all the preparatory work. We took care of dismantling 2,500 m² of office space, 25,000 m² of warehouse space and 45,000 m² of pavement. In addition, we cleaned up 10,000 m³ of soil and installed 5 km of new sewerage and 20,000 m² of new asphalt.

Aertssen also provided the location status report. We had precisely the right expertise in-house: using an Aertssen drone, Marcel Aertssen (www.skysense.be) made high-resolution aerial photos.

In short: it’s a site that fits us to a “T”. Thanks to our versatility. And that’s how we met our tight deadline without any problem: market leader Caterpillar commissioned its strategic location in the area of the Vilvoorde container terminal on the first of October. Right on time!
