The construction of the first warehouse in accordance with 7R’s new 7R Green eco-concept is underway. The facility is being built in the BTS formula for logistics operator No Limit in the 7R Park Sosnowiec complex in Sosnowiec, Poland. The green solutions applied in the project will help to minimize No Limit’s environmental impact.

The warehouse space delivered to No Limit will be nearly 5,000 sqm. Developer 7R is also preparing an office for the tenant, located on two floors, with a total size of 430 sqm. The building has been designed according to 7R’s new 7R Green eco-building standards introduced by the developer at the beginning of this year. The investment focuses on the most effective selection of pro-ecological solutions, consistent with the needs of No Limit's strategy. The facility will be commissioned for use in September 2020.

The 7R Green concept focuses primarily on the considerable energy efficiency of these new warehouses. The No Limit warehouse in Sosnowiec will be entirely powered by renewable energy sources and it will be BREEAM certified.

“This is both the first BTS warehouse we are building for No Limit and the first 7R Green facility constructed according to the 7R Green standard. The facility will be covered with a photovoltaic system, which requires, as part of its installation, the strengthening of the roof structure. We are also preparing the infrastructure for electric car charging stations and an internal car wash. The building’s facade will be covered with greenery, emphasizing the ecological values of the facility. The entire project will create optimal conditions for the sustainable logistics activities of our client. It will also showcase this new trend which we are introducing to the warehouse and industrial real estate market,” adds Maciej Krawiecki, Head of Leasing at 7R.

From the logistical point of view, the facility will offer 11 docks and 12 courier gates, including a semi-cross dock solution, i.e. docks and L-system courier gates. Kwadrat Polska and Atlas Ward are responsible for the architectural design of the building. The general contractor of the investment is Atlas Ward.

7R Park Sosnowiec is a complex of three modern Class A facilities in the heart of the Silesian metropolitan area. The facilities are located in Sosnowiec on Innowacyjna Street, just off the S1 expressway and only a few kilometers from the A4 motorway.
