Following the announcement of winners on the local markets, this year for the first time CIJ announced the “grand final”, in which the 2015 winners in each country competed against each other. The CIJ Awards Europe honors exceptional projects, companies and individuals who have concluded outstanding work during the last year. The winners were then selected and evaluated by commercial real estate professionals from various European countries.
“We see every award as an encouragement and also as a commitment for the future. However, I consider two triumphs at the CIJ Awards Europe to be an absolutely extraordinary success which crowns the long-term and high-quality work performed by the whole company. On this occasion I would like to thank all our employees throughout Europe for their exceptional work commitment and customer service,” said Robert Dobrzycki, CEO of Panattoni Europe.
New Warehouse Development for the AmazonFulfilment centre
The facility for the biggest online shopping store Amazon comprises 133,000 sqm of industrial space. Construction started in August 2014 and it was finished and handed over a year later. The built-to-suit project is located within the Panattoni Park Prague Airport I in Dobroviz. Amazon has created more than 2 500 long term jobs/permanent jobs and additional seasonal jobs within three years after launch. The building itself is the largest leased industrial building ever developed in the Czech Republic.
“I don’t want to say that last year was a record year because I believe that we will achieve even better results this year. In the area of new construction we might even be able to break the magic barrier of 200 000sqm. At the moment Cheb is giving me great satisfaction, that partially thanks to our efforts it is becoming a regional industrial centre,” says Pavel Sovička, Managing Director of Panattoni Europe for the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
