Matas logistics center

BAYO.S screws replace concrete foundations to stabilise Matas’ new logistics centre, which can be completed on time despite the first snowstorm of the year and freezing temperatures. Over 500 element supports stabilise concrete and steel elements during the assembly phase of Matas’ new 32,000 m2 logistics centre, which Amatech is building in Lynge, North Zealand. Traditionally, the element supports are attached to a temporary concrete foundation, which must be excavated, poured with concrete and very often subsequently dismantled and disposed of. To ensure a much faster, cheaper and more environmentally friendly installation process, Amatech chose to replace the traditional temporary concrete foundation with over 500 steel screws from BAYO.S. The self-tapping screw foundations are screwed into the supporting soil layer, transferring the static forces to the elements. The method is simple, fast, vibration-free and a clear environmental benefit as the screws can be easily unscrewed after the installation phase and reused for the next project. An added advantage in this case is that the screws – unlike concrete foundations – can be installed in freezing temperatures. This avoids costly delays for the client, as the installation process could continue at full speed during the recent snowstorm and freezing weather in early January 2024.
