NIKE built a progressive sustainable distribution center on the NIKE European Logistics Campus (ELC) in Ham. It was designed by Belgian architect firm Jaspers-Eyers Architects, and international design and consulting company Arcadis. Pauwels, the landscape design agency based in Leuven, designed the ecological infrastructure and landscaping.
A sustainable logistic hub
Thanks to this latest investment in a state-of-the-art centralized distribution network at the heart of Europe, Nike can now serve a large network of retailers and consumers both in continental Europe and the rest of the world. More than 3,000 employees work for Nike on the Belgian campus.
There were three key themes to the design: non-fossil energy consumption, making the use of energy and resources circular, and creating an environment centered around health and biodiversity.
