New logistics hall in VGP Park České Budějovice for Dachser completed
European developer and owner of semi-industrial and logistics real estate VGP has handed over a brand new facility to Dachser Czech Republic in VGP Park České Budějovice in the Světlík commercial zone. Hall D, which has just been completed, covers 14,000 sqm and was built to suit this international logistics service provider as a further extension of its existing premises in Hall C, which covers over 9,000 sqm. It will primarily be used for contract logistics. The building aspires to a BREEAM green certification of Excellent.
"We have succeeded in completing a hall that in all respects meets Dachser's high demands for the safe and efficient operation of their specialist warehouse. It has ten loading bays and two access ramps, can store up to 25,000 pallets and is equipped with high-rise racking with sprinkler rack technology, which makes it possible to store even some of the more demanding products that require exceptional handling sensitivity," comments David Plzák, VGP Country Manager for the Czech Republic, adding: "At the same time, we have incorporated a number of environmentally friendly solutions into the hall, such as rooftop photovoltaics, heat recovery, water-saving devices and LED lighting. At the same time, we are working on planting greenery in the surroundings and the overall cultivation of the area."
International logistics service provider Dachser Czech Republic moved its České Budějovice office to VGP Park České Budějovice last year and it is currently its fastest growing office in the Czech Republic. It currently employs around 60 staff, with 20 additional jobs to be created with the new hall.
VGP Park České Budějovice is located on the outskirts of the city in the Světlík commercial zone. With excellent transport links to the city centre and direct access to the D3 motorway connecting Prague and Linz in Austria, the location is ideal for logistics and light manufacturing. The 37-hectare site is expected to comprise a total of 7 halls with a total lettable area of over 130,000 sqm when completed. The development of the park includes the reconstruction of a cycle path and the revitalisation of the adjacent pond to support local biodiversity and water retention in the landscape.
