Kingspan Insulated Panel Systems Project ALDI GOLDTHORPE DISTRIBUTION CENTRE UK Image

Aldi Distribution Centre

A combination of high-performing insulated panels and roof mounted PV feature on Aldi's new super-efficient distribution facility.

We have been working with Aldi across a number of in-store frozen and chilled food storage solutions and this is our first stand alone warehouse project for the Group. The range of composite panel technology incorporated in this project, together with the solar PV system, makes this a truly state-of-the-art warehouse structure.

Expected to operate 24/7, 365 days a year, the new building delivers a high performance, environmentally friendly solution, with extremely low running costs. It features a unique single envelope design by ISD Solutions and incorporates high performance insulated panels and a solar PV system from Kingspan.
