Through the use of a variety of sustainability initiatives, including a glue-laminated timber structural frame and cross-laminated timber roof structure, Unit 4 will set the standard in Ireland for the future of sustainable logistics development. It will also support Maersk in its ambition to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040 and be the first logistics unit of its kind in their global portfolio.
Niall Gaffney, CEO, IPUT Real Estate, commented:
Our ambition for Quantum Logistics Park was to set a new sustainability standard for logistics in Ireland and attract global occupiers to our developments. We have experienced strong demand for all four units and are pleased to have pre-let the entire park welcoming DHL, Harvey Norman and Maersk to Quantum.
In particular, we are pleased to work with Maersk to deliver Ireland’s first net zero logistics building which will support their 2040 net zero ambition.
As we continue to build out our logistics portfolio, we will continue to push the standard in the Irish market, combining quality design, active placemaking and environmental performance.
Simon Smith, Country Manager, Maersk Ireland, commented:
We are delighted to partner with IPUT on our two new warehouse and distribution facilities in Quantum Logistics Park. This is a really important next step for Maersk in the Irish market which allows us to add significant capabilities for our customers, as we continue to offer integrated end to end solutions for their supply chains. It is also with great pride that sustainability will sit out at the forefront of these facilities. For Maersk to be partnering on the first ever Glulam timber framed facility to be built in this part of Europe, gives a strong signal of our commitment to our carbon zero goal.
