A logistics platform of 130,000 sqm on 3 floors

This new logistics platform, with a total surface area of ​​130,000 sqm, will include two three-store warehouses fitted for automated storage and dedicated to e-commerce.
The two warehouses, both 36 meters high, will be served by a central ramp, serving two courtyards receiving heavy goods vehicles on the second and third floor. The site will have 140 parking spaces for trucks, enabling optimal flow.
Located on a plot of 90,000 sqm, the complex will also accommodate office space over an area of ​​3.830 sqm, the space dedicated to logistics storage representing 106,000 sqm.
GSE was commissioned by PRD to carry out the various study phases: preliminary studies, on field technical due diligence, concept design.

The construction works are to last 17 months and the building delivery is scheduled for September 2022.
A site of high environmental and architectural value

Alongside a particularly sophisticated architecture and a very high level of details and finishes, the site will also host a whole set of green spaces.
Aiming for one of the highest environmental certifications, the platform will be equipped with 16,000 sqm of photovoltaic panels on the roof, enabling a production capacity of 2 megawatts.
