The investment in Gliwice is Panattoni’s eighth project developed for Amazon. Delivered in the BTS formula, it is 317 m long, 182 m wide and 26.7 m high. Apart from its vast capacity – 210,000 sqm (including 7,500 sqm of office space) – the building also boasts 4 functional storeys fitted with cutting-edge solutions. They are extremely useful when serving the fast-growing e-commerce market. Amazon Robotics technologies, employing 3,900 transport robots, assist in storing products on shelves and order picking operations. Such an approach not only significantly contributes to maximising warehouse capacity, but also helps cut down shipping lead times.
The building has been provided with an intelligent building management system (BMS) and motion sensors in different zones. The strong points of the facility are not limited to its size and range of functionalities, but also include compliance with the most stringent environmental standards. The building has undergone the environmental certification process using the BREEAM methodology, obtaining a Very Good rating. The green technologies which were taken into consideration in the certification process include systems minimising water consumption and LED lighting.
