GLP, six months after starting its operations in Central Europe, has begun the construction of a new logistics centre in Upper Silesia. In Lędziny, directly by the S1 expressway, warehousing and production facilities will be built with a target area of over 110,000 square metres. It is one of the most modern investments of this kind in Poland – the buildings will be higher than typical warehouses, more ecological and better adapted to the changing needs of clients.
Work has already begun on the site located directly at the S1 motorway junction, 10 minutes from the A4 motorway. By the middle of this year, 37,000 sqm of warehouse, production and office space will be built there, which is already partly leased. The general contractor for the project is CFE, which worked with GLP on the construction of a BTS facility for Valeo in Skawina.
“I am glad that we can once again cooperate with GLP on the construction of a modern logistics centre. This project fits perfectly with our sustainability strategy Together We Go Green,” says Bruno Lambrecht, CEO of CFE.
The project in Lędziny is realised in accordance with GLP Design Standard. This means, among others, that the buildings will be distinguished by the storage height increased to 12 metres and preparation of the roof for installation of photovoltaic panels. These solutions will allow the tenants to use the occupied space more efficiently and achieve real savings.
Moreover, the halls will have a deepened picking zone of up to 24 metres, additional natural light and increased floor load capacity (7.5 tonnes/sq m). A Smart Metering system will also be installed, allowing customers to monitor their media consumption on an ongoing basis, e.g. via smartphone. Chargers for electric cars will be set up in front of the office areas, and a bus stop will be built at the entrance to the park. The GLP logistics park in Lędziny will be built in accordance with the requirements of BREEAM environmental certification at the “very good” level.
“For us, Upper Silesia is one of the most important markets on the logistics and industrial map of Poland. In the nearest future, we intend to develop dynamically here and to launch further projects,” says Marcin Żuchniewicz, Business Development Manager. – says Marcin Żuchniewicz, Business Development Manager responsible for the Upper Silesia region at GLP Poland.
Depending on the clients’ needs, GLP may start the construction of other buildings within the park at any time.
