Panattoni, the most active developer in the world, has completed the development of another strategic production plant. Reynaers Aluminium – a global supplier of aluminium profiles– has already opened one of the largest and most modern production centres in its portfolio. The factory has been built in Żabia Wola just 35 km from Warsaw. The development, which also includes effective office space was developed in accordance with the high standards of sustainable development and has undergone BREEAM certification for a rating of Excellent.
Panattoni means flexibility. Through developing more projects, Panattoni supplies space for different purposes including warehousing and logistics, e-commerce, advanced production facilities and modern office space. One example of this flexibility is the factory completed for Reynaers Aluminium – A leading European producer of innovative aluminium windows, doors partition walls, sliding systems and sun shades.
The company is to not only make use of over 31,000 sqm of industrial space but also modern office space with an area of around 1200 sqm designed by the ARCH-DECO architectural studio from Gdynia. The space has been prepared for the comfort of the workers which includes its acoustics, its air quality and its access to natural light. Over 37,000 sqm of green space can be found on the grounds of the development.
“At Reynaers Aluminium, production is based on rigorous quality control at every stage and the key to the company’s efficiency is a production and storage facility tailored to its operations. We are pleased that we have been able to supply a centre that superbly meets the needs of the company’s operations, while at the same time fulfilling the stringent demands of being environmentally friendly and energy efficient. This demanding and effective development is also another step in the green revolution that the entire branch is undergoing, since Reynaers Aluminium’s products play a key role in moving the real estate market towards sustainable development and limiting CO2 emissions into the atmosphere,” – says Michał Samborski, the Head of Development at Panattoni.
Four technology lines are to operate in the factory including three for painting and one for anodising components. For their own needs, the company has installed a Demi Station unit providing demineralised water, as well as a WWT wastewater treatment plant. The plant’s production is based on environmentally friendly chrome-free painting and anodising lines. Part of the electricity requirements are to be met by solar panels installed on the roof. Additionally, heat pumps will be used to heat the office building. The development has received BREEAM environmental certification with a rating of Excellent.
The Reynaers Aluminium factory is located next to the S8 expressway, which means the centre of Warsaw can be reached in around 30 minutes, while the road also provides the factory with ready access to key centres in the country.
