Billig Blomst

Despite COVID-19, 3,000 m2 of Venlo construction has been realized in eight weeks at the newly acquired garden centre of Billig Blomst in Næstved, Denmark.

In this city south of Copenhagen, Smiemans started the construction of a 2,100 m2 sales space with a column height of 4.5 meters on behalf of Stender at the beginning of June. This also included a large cold store for the sale of fresh flowers and locally grown fruit and vegetables, something Billig Blomst is known for. The warehouse of more than 800 m2 was built with a column height of 8.5 meters, so that various pallets can be stacked one above the other.

The construction went very smoothly, construction started in mid-June with stricter rules around COVID-19. Early August the construction was completed. During these eight weeks, all proposed safety and hygiene rules were carried out.

In 2018 Smiemans also realised the new garden centre in Aalborg for the Danish chain, which, with the new branch in Næstved, will have a total of 6 garden centres.
