The warehouse and distribution center for Leroy Merlin is the second project implemented by Kajima Poland for this tenant (the hall in Stryków was the first one) and, like the previous one, it is exceptionally large. This single, 123,325 m² facility is the largest in Poland, not only in regards to logistics centers but also all large size buildings. It will be used to supply Polish Leroy Merlin stores and facilitate direct online sales.
While implementing this project, Kajima Poland decided to introduce two innovations. The first is a system monitoring the deflection of the roof structure with an application for remote control. Kajima will carry out this control for two years. The other one is the introduction of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) system for design and construction works. The 3D integrated project and the construction management system enable real-time coordination of work in all engineering disciplines in real time. The introduction of selected BIM tools (including Dalux software) helped meet the deadlines. From 2020 on, Kajima Poland will use the BIM system on a regular basis.
The facility is BREEAM Good certified.
