The land for the future CONTERA Park Žiar nad Hronom has a total area of 99,000 m2. The company FAST PLUS, which is based in the home park Contery in Bratislava, will use a logistics hall with an area of 25,000 m2 in the first phase, with the possibility of expansion by another 15,000 m2. The assumption of the beginning of construction works is in 3Q / 2022 and the assumption of completion in 3Q / 2023.
"The main advantage of the future CONTERA Park Žiar nad Hronom is the location practically right next to the R1 motorway to Banská Bystrica (40 km), which is associated with excellent transport accessibility. We anticipate increased demand from end and 3PL users, "says Svetozár Rohoň, Country Manager of Contera SK.
As with most other constructions, Contera will strive for the prestigious BREEAM Excellent certification. The so-called green facades, on the roofs the developer plans to install photovoltaic panels to produce part of its own consumption.
"Currently, we have a logistics center in Bratislava, which has ceased to suit us in terms of location, shipping, receipt of goods and also storage capacity. We needed to modernize and streamline processes, while increasing space. On this occasion, we decided to find a more convenient location for the new central warehouse. I consider the surroundings of Žiar nad Hronom and Zvolen to be the logistics center of Slovakia, and since the central logistics should be in the center of the territory, Žiar nad Hronom is an ideal location. In the new premises, we will have a storage gallery, conveyors and other now necessary technological conveniences of a modern logistics center, "adds Peter Benický, CEO of FAST PLUS.
In Žiar nad Hronom, as in all other parks in Slovakia, Contera undertook to buy only green energy, ie energy produced from renewable sources. The area in Žiar nad Hronom will also include rest areas, electric car chargers, a drinking water well or rainwater reuse systems.
