Our buildings are located on Prologis Parks, which we own, manage and maintain. At every Prologis Park, we aim to provide our customers with a high quality working environment and park-wide services designed to support their business operations.
Prologis RFI DIRFT is recognised as the most successful rail freight interchange and logistics park in the UK. Located at the centre of the country, DIRFT is close to the West Coast Mainline railway and the M1 motorway. Infrastructure work has started on the third phase of the development, which has detailed planning permission for 7.9 million sq ft of logistics space and a new rail terminal.
Prologis Park West London is situated just 1.5 miles from the M4 and is strategically located to serve Heathrow airport, greater London, the Thames valley and beyond
All new Prologis warehouses are designed and constructed to minimise operational carbon emissions. Buildings with reduced operational carbon emissions require less energy to operate and help customers to save running costs.
To reduce operational carbon emissions, the first step is to implement passive design measures to reduce the need for energy. These include high levels of air-tightness and insulation to reduce potential heat loss. Our cladding specification and detailing provides insulation that is well in excess of Building Regulations, while pressure tests show that we can achieve air-tightness levels up to 80% better than the statutory requirement.
Rooflights on 15% of the warehouse roof area maximise the use of daylight, while optimal orientation takes into account the path of the sun and the prevailing winds. Where possible, offices are designed on a narrow floorplate with dual aspect glazing to take advantage of natural daylight and allow for effective passive ventilation. We also provide solar shading to ensure thermal comfort and avoid solar gain.
When energy use becomes essential, we specify and install the most energy efficient plant available, such as intelligent lighting with low-energy fluorescent fittings, daylight linking and presence-detecting controls. High-efficiency, low-NOX boilers with thermostatically controlled radiators heat the offices and different parts of the building are sub-metered to help customers track and manage their energy consumption.
Once the operational energy use in the building has been minimised, we can design and install low-or zero-carbon technologies to meet the customer’s specific operational needs and, as a result, further reduce operational carbon emissions.
