Facility will be divided into zones dedicated to manufacturing, warehousing and service operations
Panattoni is to build an advanced hi-tech manufacturing and warehouse complex for AZZ Specialty Welding Europe, a provider of specialised welding services for customers in various business sectors, including fossil power, refining, waste-to-energy, chemical processing and nuclear power.
The 12,820 m2 facility will be located in Radom. The construction project is scheduled to begin in Q3, 2020, while the tenant should be able to move in in March 2021.
The industrial section of the building will be divided into zones dedicated to manufacturing, warehousing and service operations. The other section will feature such installations as a compressor room with a compressed air distribution system and a paint spray booth, as well as overhead cranes and air doors in the docks.
The building will be fitted with welding fixtures fit to handle elements of up to 15 metres in length, and therefore the roof of the hall will be raised to a clear height of 17 metres over an area of 2,000 sqm. The flooring will also be designed to withstand the increased load of certain machines. In addition, the roof structure will be reinforced, partly due to the presence of the overhead cranes, but also to allow for the planned installation of solar panels in the future.
For the benefit of the workers, the facility will also feature increased access to natural light through roof- and wall-mounted skylights, as well as a climate system aimed at keeping the building’s temperature at a constant level (no less than 18C). The heat transfer coefficient for the building’s walls and roof are to comply with building codes that come into effect in 2021, while the entire building will be BREEAM-certified with a ‘Very Good’ rating.
The new AZZ plant will be situated on a site along ul. Hodowlana, just off the S7 road (Warsaw–Kraków) and a short distance from the A2 motorway. It is an hour’s drive from Warsaw, two hours from Kraków and three hours from the Silesian industrial cluster. An additional advantage will be the planned international airport in Radom that will serve Warsaw and the region.
