The groundbreaking ceremony for the property being developed by Logicenters in Kurikantie, Pirkkala took place on 23 October. The modern 4600 m² sorting facility will be leased to PostNord Oy, with which the logistics property company signed a lease earlier this year. Logicenters is also planning to develop an additional 7000 m2 warehouse onsite.
This summer, Logicenters announced that they had signed a lease with PostNord Oy in Pirkkala, Finland. The agreement involved the construction of a 4600 m² sorting facility which is to be ready for occupancy in the early summer of 2021. And now the groundbreaking ceremony for the new property has taken place. In addition to the sorting facility’s modern specifications, it will also be heated using geothermal energy, with the electricity being provided by solar power.
“We are very proud that development of the sorting facility for PostNord Oy is now under way. The building will be equipped with specifications which meet all of PostNord Oy’s needs. Logicenters is at the forefront when it comes to developing properties with a high environmental performance, as will be clearly demonstrated by this facility,” says Jarkko Äikää, Commercial Director Logicenters Finland.
The facility will also be prepared for further development with a 2000 m² extension. Logicenters will also develop a 7000 m² detached warehouse onsite.
“It is gratifying that the groundbreaking ceremony for our new sorting facility has now taken place. The facility will form part of our investment in delivering more quickly and responsibly throughout Finland. We can’t wait to move into the finished facility as this will strengthen our competitiveness and flexibility,” says Jani Ståhlhammar, COO at PostNord Oy in Finland.
Present at the groundbreaking ceremony were Marko Määttä (Logicenters), Ville Hilmola (PostNord), Jaakko Hermikoski (PostNord), Jani Ståhlhammar (PostNord) and Jarkko Äikää (Logicenters).
