Beijer Constructie generally focuses exclusively on the area of steel construction. Certain projects demand more from us, however. One such project is the Green Planet filling station in Pesse.
It is immediately obvious from the designs that this is no ordinary filling station. A green dome spans the whole of the structure. The round arches were manufactured using double bending and function as an entrance. Pumps for diesel and unleaded petrol, as well as for responsible biofuels, and charging points for electric cars can be found under the dome. The shop has a cylindrical design and sells sustainable coffee and healthy bread rolls.
The unusual shape of the filling station forced Beijer Constructie to work with materials that were unfamiliar to us. After all, with this shape there is no scope for dimensional variation. In this structure use was made of wooden components. To limit the risk of dimensional variation, it was decided that these would also be assembled by Beijer Constructie. The principal dimensions of the wood were taken into account by our drawing office.
Green Planet in Pesse is the largest sustainable filling station in the Netherlands. Beijer Constructie contributed around 80 tonnes of steel structures to this project.
