German term or phrase:an deren einer Schmalseite der Haupteingang liegt
I'm having an awful time figuring out what's going on here - and this is after translating the whole 35 page document, except for this paragraph that I skipped over. Hep me! (as they say in Arkansas)
Anzubieten ist eine Leichtbauhalle in Stahlkonstruktion, an
deren einer Schmalseite der Haupteingang, mit der Verwaltung und dem Sitz der Geschäftsleitung liegt, auf der Gegenseite Verladestationen mit Verladerampen für Lkw´s und Lagerflächen.
Explanation: Hi, Kim. I suppose they're talking about a rectangular warehouse-type building, on the one end of which they have integrated offices with the main entrance, while on the other end (the back) they have loading bays. That's how I understand it.
