Delin logistics park in Madrid

Combining operational efficiency and respect for the environment

Delin Property, which specialises in the development of logistics infrastructures, has decided to create a new hub on the edge of Madrid and has chosen Artelia to carry out the project. The complex comprises three buildings (66,000 m2 of floor space), all of which have been awarded the BREEAM Outstanding label.

Responsible for the design, authorisation and turnkey management of the works, our teams deployed numerous sustainable solutions to create this exemplary logistics platform.


Founded in London in 2012 by a team of pan-European logistics property experts, Delin develops projects and manages assets in the UK, the Netherlands and Spain with the aim of meeting the sector’s many contemporary requirements. The Illesca logistics site, south of Madrid, is fully in line with this approach, aiming for both high-level functional performance and outstanding integration of environmental objectives. The Delin logistics park South Madrid is one of the first buildings in Spain to obtain BREEAM Outstanding certification, the highest level offered by the British organisation BRE for measuring the degree of environmental sustainability of buildings.

To achieve this result, Artelia implemented an eco-design approach and ensured rigorous environmental supervision during the construction phase. Efforts in terms of energy transition and efficiency have resulted in the installation of photovoltaic panels, recharging points for electric vehicles, a building consumption management system, as well as some highly innovative solutions (energy recovery lift). Water consumption has been minimised thanks to efficient sanitation systems, rainwater collection tanks and a leak detection and prevention system. Particular attention has also been paid to indoor air quality (management plan, CO2 sensor, ventilation system, etc.), reducing the impact of the warehouse on the site’s biodiversity and using biomaterials for insulation.
