This is a great success not just for our Client, DPD Hungary, but also for AddVal, because the company participated in the project as designer and project manager as well.
According to Ákos Jilling, the head of the designer and project management team: „It was a great honor, that DPD trusted in us and worked together with AddVal during the design phase”. „One of the leading parcel distribution companies in Europe, the hungarian subsidiary of DPD Group contacted us in the summer of 2019 with the task of helping to create a parcel distribution center, which can serve the whole country and can be finished and start operating in the beginning of september in 2020.
From our clients point of view this was a key development, because their aim was to get among to the top 3 parcel distribution companies in the hungarian market in terms of quality as well as quantity. The deadline was close and the stakes were high, despite of that we received full trust from the client, which inspired us and helped in solving every issue. Our first task was to help find and choose the right plot of land, which followed with the creation of the full design program. We could assist during the whole construction project from the beginning, with general designing, choosing the right construction subcontractor, until the managing of the whole construction; we also worked together in making BOQ-s and and doing technical inspections.
We can gladly state that the end result surpassed the expectation of every participant int he project. This is thanks to the full trust we received from DPD, the flexibility and high standard of the execution contractor and the teamwork of our company” said Ferenc Tündik, the chief architect of AddVal.
According to Szabolcs Czifrik, the executive director of DPD Hungary ltd.: „When we started working together we felt from the first minute that we are ont he same page with the designers. We didn’t even start sharing of our ideas, our team could already see them on the design drawings. Exceptional cooperation, professionalism and good mood characterized our mutual work, which I think is very rare on the market. The new parcel sorting center swings DPD Hungary to the space age, with skipping more dozen of development steps, in which AddVal played a huge role.”
The new parcel distribution center is laid on a 5,6 ha plot, with 20.000 m2 green space. The sorting of packages is done in a brand new, 6.300 m2 large hall, built with 58 docking gates in which it’s possible to sort even 11.250 parcels per hour.
