Prologis developed an extra-large modular building to meet Action’s specific needs. Because of the variety of products to be stored in the warehouse, Prologis obtained a wide-ranging Classified Installation for Environmental Protection (ICPE) authorization. Sustainable development was addressed by the park, which was redeveloped from a formerly obsolete site.
After just nine months, Prologis delivered the 42,000 square meter first phase in early June 2016, followed by a second phase in February 2017, bringing the building’s total square footage to 71,000 square meters. A former storage facility for Citroën spare parts was redeveloped completely. Most buildings were demolished to make way for new Class-A structures in compliance with current user requirements. Demolition waste was reused onsite for construction of the new buildings, which obtained BREEAM “Very Good” accreditation.
Prologis Moissy 2 Les Chevrons was designed to enhance and improve existing infrastructures. As a member of the International Biodiversity Property Council, Prologis is committed to a BiodiverCity approach, a certification that aims to promote urban biodiversity throughout a project.
