US stock exchange-listed BorgWarner produces vehicle powertrains and exhaust system subassemblies for electric, hybrid and petrol-driven vehicles. The company was already present in Rzeszów but was looking for additional space to produce components to reduce fuel use and exhaust fumes. Its lease includes 2,100 sqm of office space. Some of the warehouse and office space will be used as a specialised laboratory for developing and testing new products as well as the company’s equipment. The ventilation and air exchange system will be ten times more effective than normal, while in the production hall the air exchange is to be three times quicker and the temperature is to be maintained at 18°C. The tenant is to start setting up its assembly lines before the end of the year, with the entire building to be handed over in February 2022.
Panattoni Park Rzeszów Airport II, which is located close to the Rzeszów-Jasionka International Airport and the A4 motorway, is to undergo BREEAM certification for a rating of ‘Very Good’. Solar panels are to be fitted as well as solar collectors for heating water, along with a rainwater management system and electric vehicle charging station. The park will comprise 21,800 sqm, of which 19,200 sqm will be warehousing space and 2,600 sqm will be offices. The entire project should be completed in Q4 2021.
