Panattoni Europe, the leading warehouse developer in Poland, executed an agreement for the construction of a BTS project for its client - clothing company, H&M. The developer is to build a warehouse covering nearly 30,000 m², where it will use a number of ecological solutions.
Panattoni Europe signed a contract aimed at expanding storage space with Hennes & Mauritz Sp. z o.o., located in Panattoni Park Poznan I. The internationally renowned clothing company has been leasing 50,000 m² of space from Panattoni Europe since 2007 in Gadki near Kórnik. Due to its expansion needs, H&M decided to build another warehouse in Gadki, with an area of 30,000 m².
The building constructed for H&M in Park Poznan I will be the first facility in Panattoni's portfolio acknowledging such wide-range ecological solutions. Solar panels are to be installed on the roof of the warehouse and used for heating water. In addition, there will be more natural light inside the facility, which will enable it to save power during the day. The building will be equipped with a rainwater recovery system. PCV and foamed polystyrene will not be used in the construction of the facility. The warehouse is to be equipped in automated storage systems. Robert Dobrzycki, CEE Managing Partner at Panattoni Europe: "We are very pleased that such a demanding client like H&M appreciates our facilities and intends to develop with our help. We are also positive about the fact that the ecological awareness is growing among our clients. Such buildings are not only environmentally friendly, but are simply more efficient cost-wise."
Panattoni Park Poznan I consists of three buildings covering 126,000 m² of warehouse and office space. It is located 13 kilometers from Poznan, near the A2 Highway, constituting the main west-east route from Germany to Central Europe. Among the tenants of Panattoni Park Poznan there are also: Arvato Services, Piotr i Pawel, Dachser, Desa, Gefco, ME-FA, Nova and OST Sped.
