GLP, a leading global business builder, owner, developer and operator of logistics real estate, data centres, renewable energy and related technologies, has begun construction of a new 66,000 SQM warehouse at Wrocław V Logistics Centre in Magnice, Poland. The building is expected to achieve a BREEAM „Outstanding“ level certification.

GLP Wrocław V Logistics Centre is strategically located on the S8 expressway, granting quick and easy access to Wrocław, the A4 and A8 motorways, and the S3 and S5 expressways. With over 120 buses and trains operating daily, the building’s tenants will also benefit from convenient public transportation connectivity to downtown Wrocław and other suburban areas, including the cities of Świdnica and Wałbrzych.

The new warehouse will incorporate a range of features designed to reduce carbon emissions including enhanced thermal insulation, smart metering for real-time energy monitoring and energy-efficient LED lighting. The building will have a floor load capacity of up to 10 tons per SQM, allowing a range of uses including secure high stacking, installation of production lines, or warehouse automation. Tenants will also benefit from access to an enhanced power supply while, the roof structure will include an enhanced glazed area of around 12.5% to allow for more natural light and be primed for photovoltaic panel installation.

Michał Szczepaniak, Business Development Manager at GLP commented „The success of our previously completed warehouses at GLP Wrocław V underscores the suitability of this location from both a business and employee standpoint. With our final building in the project, we are raising the bar in technical excellence to deliver one of the highest specification logistics facilities in Poland. The location and build quality are expected to drive interest from a wide range of potential tenants from across the logistics and manufacturing sectors.“
