CENTRALIZED DISTRIBUTION CENTER (CDC)
at Tongi, Gazipur
Client: BATA Shoe Company (Bd.)Ltd.
Built up Area : 58,000 sft.
Project Cost : TK. 16 million
Project Status : Completed in 1998
The program requirement was for a 58,000 sft of single storage space for finished footwear manufactured in an adjacent factory. The products are to be received from the factory in individual packages and stored in open racks. Before distribution, they are packed in larger boxes and shipped out. The entire process of handling the goods is done manually. Besides storage, the building also houses some office spaces related to its functions. Building construction cost and running cost were to be kept at a minimum. Since the building will not have any artificial environmental control, special considerations for low energy consumption for lighting and ventilation were needed.
