GSE Spain builds the first logistics warehouse in Europe with the highest LEED sustainability certification
GSE Spain has delivered to MERLIN Properties, a Spanish listed real estate investment company, a new logistics warehouse near Guadalajara. This new complex, with a surface area of almost 100,000sqm, is one of the largest in Spain and is also distinguished by the high degree of efficiency, sustainability and environmental achieved during its construction. It is the only building in Europe and the 3rd in the world to be awarded with the LEEDv4 Platinum certification.
The project, fully adapted to the current needs of logistics operators, has a total of 196 loading bays, 659 parking spaces, as well as 1,500 sqm of office space and 46,000 sqm of developed outdoor area. Both GSE and developer MERLIN Properties have invested the financial and human resources necessary to achieve the highest level of environmental certification.
To achieve excellence and the highest LEED certification, the warehouse has incorporated various innovative solutions to achieve sustainable construction and reconcile the ecological impact and well-being for those who will use the space. The management of rainwater on the site was one of the main challenges for GSE.
This new development by GSE testifies to the success of the logistics sector in Guadalajara and in the national territory in general, caused largely by the rapid growth of online sales experienced in the 2020s.
