MG Airport Brussels
MG Real Estate developed three logistics centres at Brucargo, the cargo area of Brussels Airport, the national airport in Zaventem near Brussels.
DHL Aviation: During the development of the building for DHL Aviation, a great deal of attention was devoted to the visibility of the building and its integration in its surroundings. From the offices there is a view of the air traffic from Brussels Airport. It was therefore an exceptional project that was completed in a short time frame of 1.5 years. DHL Aviation provides a comprehensive service to its customers for international express, air and transcontinental freight forwarding, logistics and international mail services.
DHL Global Forwarding: This sustainable complex was built in accordance with the strictest safety regulations and TAPA standards within the aviation sector. Tailor-made to meet our customers' needs, this platform is the modern and sustainable cornerstone of DHL Global Forwarding, the world's leading platform for efficient global freight coordination and transportation.
St. Jude Medical: With an eye for detail and according to our very high quality standards, this modern and sustainable complex was built according to the customer's wishes: St. Jude Medical, the world leader in pacemakers and other medical devices.
MG Airport Brussels
This advanced logistics centre was custom built for DHL Aviation. The challenge during the project’s construction was the two underground Diablo tunnels connecting the train traffic with Brussels Airport. The tunnels are at a depth of 8m. The offices are accessed via a 161 m steel construction flyover that is accessible via a concrete access building. The 350m² IT room planned to support DHL's entire global network is an impressive element. Since the building was subject to various requirements in terms of location and environment, an eight-metre high coir wall was installed that has a double sound-absorbing function. This stops both the noise from the motorway and the noise from DHL for the inhabitants of Steenokkerzeel. The construction of the impressive 18,000 m² mezzanine is also a feat of engineering.
DHL Global Forwarding
This state-of-the-art logistics centre was custom built for DHL Global Forwarding Belgium. Thanks to the impressive size of the site and the logistics space, DHL is able to bundle its air freight activities under one roof. MG Airport Brussels also offers top-notch infrastructure for its various activities, including a temperature-controlled area of 1,750 m² that meets the strictest GDP standards. On top of that, this building fits perfectly within the sustainable ‘Go Green’ philosophy of DHL Global Forwarding, as it uses environmentally friendly techniques such as solar panels and water recuperation.
St. Jude Medical
To supplement the St. Jude Medical Coordination Center in Zaventem, MG Real Estate developed this logistics project in Machelen for the pharmaceutical company. This new building project fits the firm like a glove, because it was developed entirely according to the firm’s wishes and meets the strict requirements of the pharmaceutical industry.
