The ILL5 building constructed as part of the CTPark Ilowa complex has been awarded the BREEAM International New Construction certificate at the “Excellent” level. The building, with an area of almost 115,000 sqm, received a rating of 77.26 percent. This is the result of adapting it to strict environmental requirements in terms of, among other things, responsible water and energy management and measures to support employee well-being.
CTP has been investing in the development of energy-efficient industrial and logistics buildings for years, being the first European warehouse developer to have its entire portfolio BREEAM certified. Since 2021, all facilities have been developed to the high certification standards of at least ‘Very Good’. Now another property has been added to CTP’s catalogue of green investments. The applied solutions and sustainable operation of the CTPark Iłowa complex will significantly reduce the level of light pollution and cut electricity consumption in the external common areas by up to 50 per cent. Later this year, a PV installation with a target power of up to 12 MWp will also be installed on the roof of the development.
“Climate responsibility is part of our DNA. In addition to the highest level of functionality or the ability to adapt the space to the precise expectations of our customers, CTP investments meet the requirements of sustainable construction. At CTParks, we focus on ecological solutions, leading to a reduction in their environmental impact. In the case of CTPark Iłowa, the BREEAM certification process confirmed, among other things, a water saving of more than 54 percent. We have also equipped it with charging stations for electric vehicles, and a flower meadow has been created in the immediate vicinity of the facility. Social responsibility is also a very important pillar of our development – we want CTP’s logistics parks to provide value for local residents. The BREEAM certificate at the Excellent level for CTPark Iłowa confirms that we are on the right track – both in business and pro-environmental terms,” says Piotr Flugel, Country Construction Director and COO at CTP Poland.
In the certification process carried out, CTPark Iłowa received the highest marks in aspects such as water management (89/100), waste management (86/100) and energy (84/100).
“Such high ratings confirm the effectiveness of the solutions we have chosen and their real impact on improving our planet. Energy efficiency or minimising the level of embedded and operational carbon footprint are among the factors we consider in great detail when designing and erecting our facilities,” adds Bogi Gabrovic, Deputy Country Head at CTP Poland.
The ILL5 hall covers an area of approximately 115,000 sqm and was commissioned in 2023. In addition to its ecological advantages, the CTPark Ilowa complex is distinguished by its strategic location – it is in the immediate vicinity of the A18 motorway under construction, leading to the German border. It is also part of the future education and logistics cluster in the Żarsko-Zagański Functional Area. The investment’s tenants include companies such as Saint-Gobain Sekurit and the Hermes Group.
