At the ceremony where the results of the 17th edition of these prestigious Czech awards were announced, P3 received its award for a distribution centre near Prague constructed on a Build-To-Suit basis for the VF Corporation.

An eight-member jury consisting of experienced specialists from the field had nominated 37 projects that competed in five categories.

The jury selected P3 for facilitating the growth and consolidation of the VF Corporation's logistics processes through the construction of a new high-efficiency distribution centre, which incorporates environment-friendly, energy-saving features.

Held at the Congress Hall at the Czech National Bank's building in Prague, the awards ceremony was attended by leading representatives of the Czech real estate industry including architects, developers, and prominent lawyers, financiers, and public officials. The award was received, on behalf of the P3 team, by P3’s Head of Construction in the Czech Republic Tomáš Kubín and Daniel Kubizňák, Head of Leasing.

"Our partnership with the VF Corporation has now lasted more than 10 years. During that time, the company has become the largest tenant at the P3 Prague D8 park, and it is a great honour to have received an award for a project delivered for this particular client. The prize is a reward for the many years of hard work undertaken by our experienced professionals and testimony to how P3's comprehensive knowledge of the business, needs, and preferences of our clients leads to the best possible results and, most importantly, to their complete satisfaction," says Tomáš Míček, P3's Country Head for the Czech Republic.

The new VF Corporation warehouse is located in the P3 Prague D8 park.

P3 has now received a prestigious award for the completion of this venture. A contract for another building, which will comprise 23,445 m² and is scheduled for completion in April 2016, was signed only eight months later. Once the last construction stage is completed, VF Corporation will occupy a total of 106,000 m² at P3 Prague D8 park.
