As a result of selection of the successful tenderer announced by the Gdańsk-based company at the end of last year, Bremer has become the general contractor of the investment located in the Brześć Economic Zone, while the supervision of the construction works has been entrusted to Trebbi Polska. Tacakiewicz Ferma Kresek architectural studio was responsible for preparing the design of the future distribution centre and the tender documents. The construction works, which started in January this year, will last until the end of 2021.

Partners for one of the key investments of the Gdańsk-based clothing company were selected in a competitive procedure announced in December 2020. It comprised selection of the general contractor and the entity responsible for the overall investor supervision over the construction of the new logistics facility of LPP. As a result of the tender, the construction process will be carried out by Bremer, and LPP will entrust the supervision over the implementation of the investment to Trebbi Polska.

– When choosing the contractor for the new distribution centre we took into account not only the experience in the implementation of similar facilities and the complexity of the services provided. It was also very important for us that the potential partner understands the sustainable policy of LPP as a family business. We believe that the companies chosen in the competition will help us build a facility which will be friendly for future employees and the local community, as well as for the natural environment – stresses Łukasz Piwoński, Administrative and Technical Director, LPP.

Bremer, present in Poland since 2013, specialises in the design and construction of logistics, production and office facilities in a turnkey system. Since its inception, the Polish branch of the company has completed 67 projects with a total area of over 2,100,000 m2.

– LPP is a renowned client and we perceive the choice of Bremer as the contractor for the company’s new logistics facility as a reward for our work to date and commitment to the projects entrusted to us. The distribution centre is to be equipped with modern solutions, compliant with the principles of sustainable construction, which is also in line with our approach to modern industrial construction. We believe that the protection of natural resources is of particular importance nowadays – comments Piotr Miodek, Commercial Director, Bremer sp. z o.o.

Trebbi Polska – LPP’s representative on the investment site – will be responsible for a comprehensive control of the construction process. The tasks of the Polish-British company will include coordinating cooperation between the company and the general contractor, monitoring the schedule of works and supervising the course of works, including construction, sanitary and electrical works.

– As a company providing project management and construction consultancy services, we are delighted to be involved in this project and that Trebbi Polska’s services and professionalism have been appreciated by such an important company on the Polish market as LPP. We are convinced that our long-standing experience and our qualified engineering staff will meet the investor’s highest expectations – emphasises Arkadiusz Osiński, Member of the Management Board, Trebbi Polska.

The Distribution Centre of LPP will be built according to the design by Tacakiewicz Ferma Kresek studio. The company based in Poznań is one of the biggest architectural offices in Poland, employing over 100 people. The studio specialises in designing industrial facilities.

– We have been cooperating with Tacakiewicz Ferma Kresek for several years now. The distribution centre in Brześć Kujawski will be the third logistic facility we have designed together. The studio’s architects are well aware of our needs and the conditions of the LPP’s supply chain, which has significantly improved the whole process. As regards this investment, the short period of preparation of the documentation, both for the purposes of construction and tender, was a great challenge. The project team worked practically non-stop, which I would like to express my thanks for – comments Łukasz Piwoński, LPP.

– In our opinion, the quality of the project is the outcome of cooperation between the designer and the investor. The Distribution Centre in Brześć Kujawski is a good example of great cooperation between our office and the well-informed and open partners from LPP. This project has brought us a lot of satisfaction, both as regards the level of the design challenge and the high level of communication – emphasises Grzegorz Tacakiewicz, the owner of the architectural office.

Apart from preparing the design and tender documentation, Tacakiewicz Ferma Kresek design studio will be responsible for supervising the compliance of the works with the building permit design.
