GLP announced that it has agreed to lease its GLP Logistics Centre in Lędziny, Upper Silesia to its first customer Eurotherm Poland, only a few weeks after construction began on the site. Eurotherm, part of Schneider Electric, will be the building’s first occupier and it will use the warehouse as a site for its industrial automation plant that manufactures measurement and control instruments.
GLP Lędziny park is a 110,000 sqm centre that has direct access to Expressway S1. Construction on the centre began in mid-February 2021 and the first stage of construction is expected to be completed by mid-2021.
Upon completion, the building will have a clear height of 12 m, an extra deep 24-metre picking zone and a floor loading capacity (7.5 t/sqm) to support production machinery and lines.
The facility will be built to BREEAM certification standards, and in line with GLP’s sustainability guidelines in all its new builds. The building will have built-in energy-saving solutions, including a smart metering system that will enable clients to control utility consumption in real-time as well as solar-ready rooftops. The building will also allow for natural light to improve working conditions for workers.
Krystian Boryń, Plant Manager at Eurotherm, said: “We chose a building of unique quality that offers sustainability and easy access to main regional transport routes, which is convenient for suppliers as well as our own logistics operations and employees. We also recognise GLP’s experience as an industrial property developer and manager that is committed to maintaining a long-term partnership with its clients.”
