Panattoni Europe will build another distribution centre for H&M, one of the world’s leading fashion companies. The BTS facility will be developed in Grodzisk Mazowiecki and will be divided into warehousing space, office and staff facilities (with a separate canteen for employees). Development works are scheduled to commence in February, and the building is to be finished Autumn 2017.
Panattoni Europe’s new investment for the fashion company H&M will be the second BTS facility delivered by the developer to this client. The previous one, was built in Gądki at Panattoni Park Poznań I and was the first project in Panattoni Europe's portfolio to feature a broad range of environment-friendly solutions. The new warehouse will also comply generally with the principles of sustainable development – it will aim for the prestigious LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification, evaluating how buildings impact on the natural environment. The environment-oriented features of the investment for H&M will include the modern structure of the warehouse hall, the use of environment-friendly materials, energy-saving solutions, as well as the location.
Marek Dobrzycki, Managing Director, Panattoni Europe, comments: “The ideas of sustainable development are very dear to us, and that is why we are looking forward to developing another eco-project with a client as demanding as H&M. Buildings like that are not only environment-friendly, but also more cost-effective to operate. Besides, this is not our first joint project, which proves mutual trust”.
Paulina Dziubińska, Senior Consultant at the Industrial and Warehouse Space Department of JLL and H&M contact person, declares: “We are happy to be working together with H&M on such a comprehensive undertaking for the company’s new distribution centre in Poland. The warehouse built by Panattoni under the BTS – build-to-suit – formula has been designed specifically with H&M’s needs in mind, taking into account their technical and operational requirements”.
The BTS warehouse for H&M will be built in Grodzisk Mazowiecki at ul. Chemiczna, with a quick and convenient connection to the A2 motorway, cutting across Central Poland and forming part of the international route E30. Such a location will make for efficient international shipping, and – moreover – with Warsaw city centre as little as approx. 34 km away, the site is an excellent spot for clients focusing on providing logistics services to the Warsaw market and the country at large.
