New LPP e-commerce warehouse in the Podkarpacie region is growing
Construction works on the LPP investment in Jasionka near Rzeszów, which started in January, are gaining momentum. After completing part of the earthworks, reinforced concrete and external installations, the construction of the new e-commerce warehouse of the Polish clothing manufacturer has entered another stage. The company has already started assembling concrete pillars for the steel structure of the roof, scheduled for May this year. Completion of the entire 69,000 m2 facility is still planned for 2022.
In the Podkarpacie region, intensive construction works are underway on a new warehouse dedicated to handling online orders of the Gdańsk-based clothing company. The investment, designed with due care for sustainable construction standards, is expected to streamline the logistics network as well as increase the company’s operational efficiency and current warehouse space.
– We are currently entering the next phase of preparing the new FC Podkarpacie facility. Thanks to the involvement of all our construction partners the investment process is proceeding according to schedule and it seems that the warehouse in Jasionka will be put into operation according to our assumptions still this year – informs Kamil Kawałek, LPP Logistics Network Development Manager.
Following the completion of earthworks and stabilizing the ground for the warehouse construction, the installation of concrete structural pillars has started on the currently laid foundations. So far, about 40%t of the planned 400 pillars have already been installed. This stage will take 8 weeks, and the completion of this part of the works is expected at the end of May 2022. The construction of the pillars will allow the preparation of the steel structure of the roof to begin, and then in June, the roof and walls of the facility will be closed up. In parallel, the installation of the rainwater drainage and fire protection systems is currently underway, and activities related to the construction of the external networks are continuing.
– Once completed, the new facility will increase LPP’s warehouse space to over 465,000 m2. The investment is the next step in the development of our logistics network and an important element of our company’s plans. The new Fulfillment Center will streamline many distribution processes in this part of Europe. We also believe that our long-term presence in the Podkarpacie region will bring benefits for the whole region by, among other things, supporting the local labour market – comments Sebastian Sołtys, Director Global Logistica at LPP.
