Mitnija, one of the largest construction companies in Lithuania, has been chosen to build WestHub, a 17,000 sq. m logistics center in the Šilainiai District of Kaunas, near the Via Baltica route. The first of its kind in Lithuania, the new logistics center will be completely fossil fuel-free, using only on-site generated solar energy for its routine operations.
The WestHub logistics center is a project of the real estate developer Kamida NT, a subsidiary of Kamida Group, which also owns companies specializing in transport, logistics and agricultural machinery. The construction project is worth almost EUR 9 million and is scheduled to be completed by Mitnija within 11 months, in November 2021.
Rated A++ for energy efficiency, the new logistics center will have a goods storage capacity of 15,200 sq. m, with an additional floor space of some 1,800 sq. m for administrative offices. The project will seek BREEAM’s Green Building Certification with a “Very Good” rating.
