09 June 2017

Outstanding’ rating confirms Prologis as pioneer in sustainable, energy-efficient logistics real estate Prologis, Inc., the global leader in logistics real estate, today announced that its 33,700 square metre build-to-suit facility for Czech sports retailer Sportisimo at Prologis Park Prague-Rudna is the first logistics facility in the Czech Republic and only the second such building in Central and Eastern Europe to receive BREEAM’s highest accreditation rating.

BREEAM, the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for infrastructure and building projects, awards an Outstanding rating for a score of greater than 85 percent on a development’s performance in several core categories 
such as governance, land use and ecology, resources and energy, social and economic well-being, transport and 
movement, and innovation. 
Completed earlier this yearBuilding 18 received a final BREEAM score of 88.1 percent, reflecting a design that 
not only includes the use of environmentally friendly materials but which also provides significant operational 
savings. Daily drinking water consumption has been cut by 56 percent, while primary energy consumption has 
been reduced by 20 percent beyond strictest regulations. 
All energy output is continuously controlled by the most modern measuring systems, while water supply is 
equipped with leak detection systems. 
This accreditation is testament to the innovation, quality and attention to detail that Prologis brings to the design 
and construction of all its developments,” says David Jakes, senior project manager, Prologis Czech Republic. 
“Working closely at all times with Sportisimo, Prologis was able to meet the customer’s specific requirements and 
deliver a new state-of-the-art facility that enhances the well-being of the people who work there and provides major 
cost savings.” 
The distribution centre for Sportisimo comprises two rectangular halls attached to an existing building from each 
side. A sustainable approach was applied during the construction period, imposing strict requirements to avoid any 
pollution or health and safety threats, choosing building materials based on life-cycle cost analysis and minimizing 
the amount of waste generated by reusing and recycling a large share of it.  
The interior was designed with a special focus on providing comfort for all the users of the facility, with thermal 
control, natural light and fresh air delivered by ventilation utilizing natural air, and noise mitigation. The 
environmentally friendly aspects of the development are also reflected in its surroundings: large outdoor areas for 
biodiverse greenery and habitats.  
Located off the D5 highway, 20 minutes from Prague’s city centre, Prologis Park Prague-Rudna comprises 18 
buildings totalling 213,000 square metres of state-of-the-art distribution space.  
Prologis is a leading provider of distribution facilities in the Czech Republic with more than one million square 
metres of logistics and industrial space (as of 31 March, 2017).
