This macro-platform, which covers over 240,000 m2 and has been provided by Montepino in the municipality of Cabanillas del Campo (Guadalajara), has been awarded its fourth LEED Gold certification, making it the only platform in Spain to have this type and this impressive number of energy certifications.
The LEED certification (which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a system for certifying sustainable buildings, launched and developed by the US Green Building Council. This certification, awarded voluntarily, is aimed at advancing the use of strategies which enable global improvements in the environmental impact of the construction industry. It analyses the design, construction and operation phases of projects and awards a score based on compliance with its established criteria.
Montepino has been recognised again for its commitment to developing and promoting buildings constructed in accordance with the highest quality standards. This is demonstrated by its recent achievement of this fourth LEED Gold certification, which have been awarded to each of the four buildings that make up the Montepino SI-20 platform, now known as the Merlin Cabanillas platform following its acquisition by the REIT Merlin Properties.
The first LEED Gold was awarded to the building covering over 38,000 m2, which is occupied by the company Logista. The second was for the building of over 49,000 m2 which hosts the company Luís Simões' operational centre in Spain. The third was for another building occupied by Luís Simões, which occupies a plot of land of almost 32,000 m2. Finally, the fourth building to have achieved this certification is occupied by the company XPO and covers land of some 69,800 m2.
The Vice President of Operations at Montepino, Juan José Vera, stated that "it is now clear that we are the leading logistics provider in Spain for the development of turn-key projects." He added that the platforms and buildings developed have been awarded "the highest certifications and international seals which are testament to the excellent sustainability of our buildings, not to mention their energy efficiency."
One of their keys to success, according to Vera, is the "highly qualified" team Montepino boasts, who strive every day to offer our clients "innovative, unique and state-of-the-art solutions." The company's aim is to become "the leading company in Spain" in the logistics sector, which is "booming and has great prospects for growth," the Vice President stated.
