Prime Group's contribution to these major logistics construction projects illustrates its expertise in design management and complex project construction management.

Prime Group’s Prime Engineering was participated in two significant logistics warehouse projects in France. We were selected by two prominent logistics firms to provide engineering consulting services on two simultaneous projects, which took on very similar courses.

The consulting company’s role included overseeing Roads and Miscellaneous Services and ensuring compliance with environmental standards. Our team’s specialized support led to seamless execution, solidifying the company’s position.

The first project involved a 17,000 square meter logistics warehouse located in Roissy, within the Paris Nord 2 Park. The second project was in collaboration with a known e-commerce logistics platform, for the establishment of a new 100,000 square meter logistics platform in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France.

In both cases, Prime Group’s mission was to serve as Project Management Support for the projects, facilitating their smooth execution from the study phase to completion.

What is a logistics project?

A logistics project refers to a coordinated effort aimed at planning, implementing, and managing the efficient movement and storage of goods, resources, or information from one location to another.

It can involve tasks such as transportation, warehousing, distribution, inventory management, and supply chain optimization. The goal of a logistics project is to streamline processes, reduce costs, enhance delivery timelines, and ensure that products or materials reach their intended destinations in a timely and cost-effective manner.

This often requires careful coordination among various stakeholders, including suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, and customers, as well as the use of technology and strategic planning to achieve the desired outcomes.

What are the project management details?

1. Logistics Warehouse Enhancement Project:

In the logistics hub of Roissy, France, Prime Engineering’s team was sought to manage a project. Our engineers’ role as project management and support included handling roads and miscellaneous services and coordinating with Grand Paris Aménagement for the evacuation networks concerning Aéroport de Paris (ADP).

The project entailed the development of a warehouse facility equipped with ample storage space and ancillary offices, designed to meet standard logistics specifications. Notably, the facility adhered to stringent environmental regulations, acquiring necessary authorizations, including ICPE (Installations Classées pour la Protection de l’Environnement).

Through our specialized assistance, Prime Group’s engineers ensured seamless execution and compliance, further solidifying our reputation in the logistics and industrial sectors.

2. Cutting-Edge Logistics Platform Initiative:

In the picturesque region of Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France, Prime Engineering oversaw a groundbreaking project. Acting as Project Manager, the consulting company played a pivotal role throughout the entire venture, from the initial study phase to the final implementation.

The project’s highlight was the creation of a state-of-the-art logistics platform, an ambitious undertaking envisioned to encompass a sprawling 100,000 square meters. This remarkable platform would mark the fourth of its kind in the country, reflecting our client’s dedication to expanding its logistics capabilities.

Guided by the consulting company’s comprehensive support and project management, the logistics platform took shape, poised to revolutionize logistics operations in the region.

What are some of the main challenges in industrial engineering projects?
