7R has built a BTS format warehouse in Goleniów for FIEGE, a European logistics operator. From the end of March FIEGE runs in Goleniów an international distribution centre, on an area of nearly 62,500 sqm, for a well-known global e-commerce giant.

FIEGE, a specialist in efficient logistic supply chain solutions, has chosen a modern warehouse in Goleniów near Szczecin. The company is doing so due to the increasing needs of one of its key customers, a German mail-order retailer, and a global e-commerce giant. This is already the 14th location of FIEGE in Poland.

"The choice of this location was driven primarily by two factors. Firstly, the analysis of the customer's business model, which resulted in the determination of the optimal area in terms of the customer's goods flow. Secondly, the possibility of obtaining synergy effects within existing operations. Goleniów very much met both criteria ", says Piotr Kohmann, CEO of FIEGE Sp. z o.o.

The investment has been developed in the Goleniów Industrial Park. The BTS (Build-to-Suit) project prepared for FIEGE by the warehouse and industrial space developer, 7R, involves the construction of warehouse space, as well as office space (3,100 sq m). The facility is automated and equipped with a multi-level pick tower mezzanine, which increases FIEGE's operational efficiency many times over.

The storage height in the main part of the building will be raised to 12.2 m, while in the delivery and reception areas it will be 11.7 m. The facility has been designed in accordance with the latest technologies, stringent fire safety standards that meet FM Global standards, and in environmental terms in accordance with the requirements of BREEAM Excellent certification.

"We are delighted to have acquired another prestigious client, the global logistics operator FIEGE. From the technical point of view, we designed the building in close cooperation with the client in such a way as to enable the installation of modern technological solutions connected with the automation of logistic processes. As a developer, we have the know-how and experience to build specialized warehouses which are tailored to the requirements of each type of business, providing customers with space that meets the highest technical and quality standards," says Karol Górnicki, Leasing Director at 7R.

 A 50 KWp photovoltaic installation will cover the roof. The building's energy efficiency is also positively influenced by the use of air temperature equalization destratifiers in the hall and LED lighting through a DALI system. Outside, there will be a recreational zone for employees, flower meadows, bird and insect boxes, as well as charging stations for electric cars. Rainwater will be used to water the green areas.

The general contractor for the construction works is Goldbeck. The conceptual design of the building was made by 7R Architects. The entire investment is realized in the design-build format by Goldbeck.
