The IDP Group has completed the sustainability consultancy for SEGRO’s new logistics park in Sant Esteve de Sesrovires (Barcelona), obtaining the BREEAM® ES New Construction 2015 certificate, with the classification Very Good.
IDP has completed its participation in the project, where the integral project has been developed (architecture, structures, facilities and logistics process), the project management and the startup of the Miguel Salaet, S.A. logistics platform for Segro which is located in the Can Margarit Industrial Estate in Sant Esteve Sesrovires and has a built area of 28,422 m2.
SEGRO is committed to carrying out all its constructions in a sustainable manner, taking into account factors such as energy saving, environmental impact and adaptability to people, and has therefore chosen to certify the construction under the BREEAM® method.
BREEAM® (Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method) is a method for evaluating and certifying the sustainability of buildings, widely recognized internationally. Since its launch in 1990, BREEAM® has certified more than 270,000 buildings and is now present in more than 63 countries worldwide. Regardless of their location, the common denominator of these buildings is their planning, design, construction and operation in accordance with the principles of best sustainability practices.
Thanks to the consultancy carried out by IDP’s sustainability technicians:
- An optimization of the building’s energy efficiency has been carried out, through an exhaustive analysis of the building’s envelope, equipment and viable low carbon technologies to be incorporated.
- Consumption has been reduced by 61% compared to a conventional building, thanks to the use of renewable energies and consumption control through a building management system (BMS or Building Management Software).
- Its design allows for a 73% reduction in CO2 emissions.
- Water consumption has been reduced by 70% with respect to the conventional building.
- A Plan for the Prevention and Control of Indoor Air Quality (PPCAI) has been drawn up.
- Consumption control is incorporated through a building management system (BMS or Building Management Software).
- Over 80% of the construction and demolition waste generated has been recycled or recovered, and priority has been given to materials that have been responsibly supplied.
- The ecology of the site has been improved by incorporating native vegetation and no water needs beyond rainwater.
