TSL has become a key construction partner to Lidl for their multi-chamber Regional Distribution Centres. These projects are delivered as turnkey solutions including ammonia refrigeration systems.
The Lidl Luton project is the largest project that TSL has constructed so far and is the biggest Lidl warehouse in the world at 120,700m2. The building consists of a mix of temperature cold rooms, ambient racking storage, 5,000m2 freezer, 16,000m2 MHE mezzanine and 7m deep 14,000m2 basement which houses a 35m high clad rack storage solution integrated with MHE systems, giving an 80,000 pallet storage capacity.
To understand the sheer size of this project, here are some interesting stats:
- The building is 50 double decker buses in length
- The same size as 33 football pitches
- There are over 114,000 pallet spaces
- Lidl can serve 153 local stores from this RDC
This RDC is unmissable when travelling on the M1 past Luton.
