Montepino Logística, one of the largest logistics developers and asset managers in Spain, will be handing over a new logistics complex in Marchamalo in the first half of 2021. This platform is to be built in the Puerta Centro – Ciudad del Transporte industrial estate, one of the most important logistical areas in the country. The installations, which will have a surface area of 37,044m², are being built on a plot of land covering over 103,253m² and represent an investment of over €27m.
The scheme, which is to be developed by GSE Espana, will consist of a logistics warehouse split into two sections with a service building attached. The warehouse will feature two completely open-plan areas which will be solely used for logistics processes. Moreover, to adapt to the needs of each operator, all of the modules will offer a certain level of fire protection: one section built to store wheels has a High-Risk Level of 8, while the other section, to be used for standard logistics, has a Medium Risk Level of 5.
This ambitious project will also provide a clear height of 12 metres, 43 loading bays, a total of 260 linear metres of tunnels and services and offices covering a surface area of 1076m². All of these features have been designed to fit the requirements of the client, who has once again entrusted the project to Montepino due to their ability to offer wide spaces and heights adapted to the current reality for logistics, paying special attention to the sharp rise in e-commerce.
"Our portfolio will continue to grow in 2020 and 2021, consolidating our position as the market leader on a national level. These are the first steps to overcoming new challenges which will take us beyond our borders," stated Juan José Vera, the Director General of Montepino. Similarly, Ramon Lazaro, the Development Director of GSE España, said that the collaboration between the two companies is set to be fruitful. "We share the same values: a highly qualified team who work hard every day to go above and beyond and offer our clients innovative and cutting-edge solutions."
The new warehouse will be built in accordance with standards for high efficiency and respect for the environment. As such, its providers are expecting to once again be awarded the LEED Silver certification for their work.
