The InfoFort Warehouse has a total built up gross area of 16,963m2 and is located in 6th of October City industrial zone. The project is divided into two zones: the administrative building and the warehouse. The administrative building, a concrete structure with three floors, serves as the main entrance. The warehouse portion is further divided into four sections: three main zones due to a separated racking system and a fourth zone. The fourth zone contains transit area, auditing rooms, scanning rooms, security and services areas. The building is LEED certified and incorporates many energy efficient measures such as double glazing and roof insulation.
