Prologis has started the construction of a new, state-of-the-art speculative facility totalling 14,000 square meters at Prologis Park Budapest-Harbor to provide further sustainable space. Scheduled for completion in Q2 2020, the new building will even have its own motorway access.

Building 11 has been designed with innovative solutions that support sustainable and efficient operation. The facility has been designed with BIM (Building Information Modelling), an intelligent 3D-model-based process which gives architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure more efficiently. Implementing BIM also enhances customer experience and drives energy sufficiency in line with Prologis’ commitment toward carbon-neutral developments.

Prologis-standard, energy-saving LED lighting and large skylights will cut the building’s electricity consumption by 45 percent in comparison to the latest lighting standards. The special-grade wall insulation and roof system, together with high-performance gas-fired heaters will reduce heating costs by as much as 30 percent. Smart meters help optimize water, gas and electricity consumption, remotely with just a single click.

As with all new Prologis facilities, the building will be submitted for BREEAM “Very Good” accreditation.

“Within the city limits, Prologis Park Budapest-Harbor offers more than just a space to our customers - it supports the wellbeing of their employees. Amenities include barbecue relaxation areas, a five-a-side football pitch and green outdoor spaces,” says Martin Polák, Managing Director, Regional Head, CEE at Prologis.
