IKEA Distribution Centre, Dubai South

IKEA is one of the single largest regional distribution centers located within Dubai South’s Logistics District. Dubai South has a unique multimodal platform with a highly integrated and efficient sea, road and air network, which will accommodate Dubai’s Expo 2020’s exhibition district.

The new distribution centre aims to increase IKEA’s capacity to handle 70,000 twenty-foot equivalent units per year and will enable the company to deliver fast-moving products more efficiently to stores across the GCC.

Designed as per NFPA and Dubai Civil Defense (DCD) requirements. IKEA required the building fire protection system to also comply with VDA (European Code for Fire), as a result, in-rack sprinklers have been provided even though they are not requirements under NFPA and DCD.
