Bologna Interporto: Prologis completes two new build-to-suit facilities for a major express delivery firm

Prologis has constructed two new Class A build-to-suit facilities that will expand the new logistics platform of a major express delivery firm at Bologna Interporto by around 30,000 square metres. Over the last four years, Prologis has completed four build-to-suit, modern and technologically advanced buildings, which occupy a total surface area of 60,000 square metres.

The latest two Class A buildings (DC23 and DC24) were completed recently by Prologis and have been awarded LEED Gold sustainability certification. Each building has a 100 KW solar power installation, the latest technology LED lighting and hard-wearing, high-performance jointless floors. One is a cross-dock building of around 9,000 square metres, with a beam height of 8 metres. It is equipped with 84 loading bays for TIR trucks and vans and includes 450 square metres of office space. The other, a 21,500 square metre building, which will be used as a warehouse, has a beam height of 12 metres, 18 loading bays and 1,000 metres of office space. This building also has a rainwater recovery system. Outside, there are large areas for vehicles to manoeuvre and parking spaces reserved for employees and visitors.

“We will deliver these two new buildings, which will expand the customer's complex at Prologis Park Bologna Interporto, in the coming weeks”, commented Sandro Innocenti, Senior Vice President and Country Manager at Prologis Italia. “We are particularly delighted to have provided this key customer with a strategic location and to have used all our design know-how to create a modern and technologically advanced logistics platform”.
