Expansion Florensis Cut Flowers Rijsenhout

In 2018, the Florensis Cut Flowers production facility in Rijsenhout was expanded with 13,000 m² of greenhouse. This greenhouse is fully used for the breeding of lisianthus.

For the expansion of this location, AAB took care of the permits, the technical supervision and the project management.

The permit work needed special attention because the land on which the new greenhouse would be realized is designated as a risk area for the presence of explosives from the Second World War. After the capitulation in 1940, fake airbases were established in Rijsenhout, with the aim of landing the bombs there instead of at the adjacent Schiphol airport. 
Our permits department has had a specialized investigation carried out on the basis of a surface detection (up to 4 meters - ground level) and a depth detection (per pile position to the intended entrance level).

Before construction could commence, AAB translated Florensis' ideas into a technical program of requirements. Based on this, various technical specifications documents were drawn up, after which the tender phase could be started. Project Manager Maik Rodenrijs says: "Florensis' wish was to supply plants with consistently high quality all year round. Together with the customer, we looked for an optimal greenhouse and installation design to make this possible." The 13,000 m² greenhouse has been split into 3 separate climate departments. Each department is equipped with a cooling installation, high-quality lighting installation, three different heating installations and a triple screen installation.

All existing greenhouses are of the Breedkap type at the Rijssenhout location. This project was carried out in the Venlo type, which posed a number of challenges. The new greenhouse had to be built watertight against the existing greenhouse on two sides. This was quite a challenge, especially on the end gable wall. Maik: "The different heights of both types of greenhouses meant that a solution for the drainage had to be found. This has been achieved through the use of a special walkable gutter. This gutter enables Florensis to correctly drain the water, to be able to continue carry out its logistics processes from the central corridor and to carry out possibly service and maintenance on the Venlo and Breedkap decks.

According to planning, the new greenhouse was put into use in January 2019. AAB has been intensively involved from various departments in the realization of this expansion. The collaboration between Florensis and AAB has not yet ended with this project; AAB is also intensively involved in the new-build project Florensis Dinteloord.
