SEGRO expands SEGRO Logistics Park Oberhausen by 51,600 square meters - climate-positive building with DGNB certification is the aim
SEGRO begins the third and final construction phase of the SEGRO Logistics Park Oberhausen. In the process, 51,600 square meters of logistics, mezzanine and office space are being developed.
As the general contractor, the construction company Goldbeck International GmbH is responsible for carrying out the construction work. After the completion of the construction work, which is expected for July 2022, the entire area will have 117,000 square meters of rental space. Approximately 70,000 square meters of this has already been let.
The property is being built according to the latest standards for sustainable, ecological and energy-conscious construction. The building shell is insulated according to the latest standards and meets the requirements of the KfW building standard "Efficiency House 40". The new property also supplies its own green electricity – a photovoltaic system will be installed on the entire roof area. In addition, the SEGRO Logistics Park Oberhausen is being built on a former fallow area, which means that no new areas will be sealed by the construction. For the first time in Germany, SEGRO is aiming for the DGNB Platinum and DGNB Climate Positive sustainability certificates for the project in Oberhausen. The latter means that the CO2 emissions caused by the building and its use must be lower than the emissions that are avoided by the building's own production and, if necessary, even by the export of greenhouse gas-free energy. The SEGRO property can achieve this through the energy generation of an in-house solar system and - depending on the future tenant - through the additional external purchase of green electricity.
"The development of our SEGRO Logistics Park Oberhausen is a prime example of modern logistics development - which was only possible thanks to the commitment of the city. With the construction of a bypass road, they created the basis for the truck traffic associated with logistics use not becoming a burden for the residents. At the same time, with the real estate concept, which is completely geared towards sustainability, we enable modern and climate-friendly use in a good location,” says Stefanie Vedder, Associate Director Development Logistics at SEGRO.
The SEGRO Logistics Park Oberhausen is located in the immediate vicinity of the Oberhausen motorway junction (A2/A3) and thus offers future tenants optimal transport connections. In addition, the park has the option of connecting to the Port of Duisburg, Europe's largest inland port.
