Construction of the logistics platform that Inbisa is building for the UK fund Rockspring in Getafe is progressing nicely, and all indications are that it will be completed by the end of 2016 or beginning of 2017, just nine months after the first stone was laid at the site.
In fact, as at July 2016, just four months after construction began, almost 50% of the structure has been built, and the workmen have now started to construct the platform’s walls and roof.
Located in the Puerta Mayor “Los Gavilanes” business and logistics park in Madrid, the new platform will cover an area equivalent to eight football pitches, with a total constructed surface area of 58,000 sqm, on a plot measuring 88,000 sqm. The platform may be split into eight modules measuring more than 7,000 sqm each.
Both Rockspring and ProEquity, the real estate consultancy responsible for the exclusive marketing of this project, are excited about the new platform, which is particularly suitable for major retailers and e-commerce specialists that need to base their logistics operations close to Spain’s capital city.
In this sense, the logistics park in Getafe is located at the junction of the A-4 Madrid-Andalucía motorway and the M-50 ring-road, 27 km from Barajas airport and 20km from the centre of Madrid.
The platform will be equipped with the highest quality standards, a certificate of sustainable construction and complete facilities with a dock ratio of 1/860m2, which means 64 docks, concrete structure and walls, wide handling bays measuring more than 35m, an interior height of 12m and LED lighting, amongst other state-of-the-art features.
