GLP has signed lease agreements in GLP Park Brno Holubice with ROHLIG SUUS Logistics and another logistics company. GLP Park Holubice has now been successfully leased before completion, which is scheduled for August of this year.
ROHLIG SUUS Logistics, which already signed a 8,500 SQM lease at the site in 2022, will be expanding a further 4,400 SQM this year, whilst another global logistics company will occupy 7,000 SQM.
The development is unique not only because of its best-in-class technological and ESG standards, but also its capacity for flexible use by occupiers. Totalling 72,000 SQM, the park accommodates various types of operations including logistics and distribution companies, auto parts manufacturers, and office space including a canteen for employees.
GLP Park Brno Holubice is being built to the highest technical and sustainability standards, achieving a BREEAM Excellent rating. The buildings have a clear height of 10-12m and are energy-efficient with above-standard insulation (200mm) and equipped with heat pumps.
Photovoltaic power plants will be installed on the rooves, capable of producing tens of megawatt-hours of emission-free energy annually. Infrastructure for e-mobility is being built, including charging stations for electric vehicles and e-delivery trucks up to 5 tons to enable last-mile e-mobility for clients. Rainwater is to be utilised as utility water, including for toilet flushing or watering greenery.
The park has also been designed and built as a ‘Digital Twin’ using BIM modelling and premises equipped with thousands of data sensors. The data will be utilised in a unique property management system twiGIS to ensure efficient operations and maintenance.
Jan Palek, GLP’s Director for the Czech Republic and Slovakia, comments: “The Czech Republic is one of the most industrial countries in Europe, with many manufacturing companies expanding and looking for new modern premises. They require quality warehouses of the highest standards to accommodate their production lines or robotised distribution systems. GLP is uniquely positioned as leading global developer to build and subsequently operate industrial parks to such high standards and offer customers such flexibility.”
Jiří Chládek, Managing Director of ROHLIG SUUS Logistics, notes: “GLP has been instrumental in our growth, offering more than just warehouse solutions. Their added value services, like finding a sub-lease client for our unused space, demonstrate their commitment to our success. We appreciate their support in optimising our operations and their dedication to delivering value.”
