FM Logistic Group, through CITYlogin, will develop a next-generation cross-docking platform in La Atalayuela to facilitate sustainable urban distribution. The proposal includes an infrastructure within a sustainable park, promoting a balance between business activity, society and the environment.
The project consists of two buildings for green urban logistics. The first will have large cross-docking spaces, and the second will be used for a parcel sorter. All buildings with LEED-certified architecture. Hi Life is committed to improving social integration and sustainability through the creation of a nursery school and hydrogen generation plant. In addition, a solar array spanning almost 13,000 square meter will be located across the roof surface area of both buildings. The hydrogen generated will be used to power CITYlogin vans and forklifts for the micro logistics hub and other third parties.
Key Components and Solutions
Hi-Life’s 13,300 square meter of solar panels generate 2,500 MWh/yr of renewable electricity, the excess (2000 MW/yr) is supplied to the surrounding neighborhood.
A cross-docking platform of 17,600 square meters incorporates an annual Hydrogen production of 29,400 kg/yr to power a fleet of vans and forklifts.
70% of all construction materials come from recycled sources. Prefabricated and dismantlable components and materials are included in 80% of the structure and 50% of the indoor components. PVC use is minimized by 70% and replaced by other low carbon materials.
At least 50% of all excavated materials are used in building foundations.
There are 9,000 square meters of green garden areas.
8,000 square meters of water friendly plant coverage saves 33,000 m3/ yr of water. HiLife is able to reuse 5,300 m3/yr of water using a combination of rain collectors, Waterwise appliances and grey water reuse.
