WELL Certificate Gold

Adapting the WELL Building Standard to logistics buildings places a focus on pleasant and healthy work environments. The complex Gold-level certification process takes time and effort. All the WELL preconditions and 40 percent or more of the optimization features have to be met to achieve the Gold-level certification.

Authorized WELL assessors spend several days onsite to evaluate a building while the facility already is in full operation. This stringent performance-based assessment is what makes the IWBI certification a true seal of quality.

Project Overview

In September 2020, Prologis completed a 27,800 square meter distribution center in Datteln, Germany. Developed speculatively and in accordance with the WELL Building Gold Standard, the facility was fully leased before completion. Through a harmonious and health-promoting work environment, we add value for our customers' employees—their most important resource.


Datteln is close to the A2 motorway, and the Castrop-Rauxel motorway entrance ramp is less than 4 kilometers from the distribution center. Datteln also has a rail connection, and Dortmund Airport is only 32 kilometers from the facility. With its location in the northern Ruhr area, Prologis Park Datteln is in the immediate vicinity of numerous conurbations with many qualified employees.

Whereas building rating systems such as BREEAM assess the environmental performance of buildings, the WELL Building Standard focuses on building design and management that enhances employee health and quality of life in the work environment. Incorporating health and well-being into building design is an example of Prologis’ long-term focus and innovative approach to environmental stewardship, social responsibility and governance—and of how these factors are integrated fully into our business strategy.

What Features Does the Property Offer?

In the facility at Prologis Park Datteln, the air and water quality is monitored constantly. Several dispensers in the hall ensure employees easy access to drinking water, and offices and meeting rooms are equipped with high-quality sound insulation. Employees can use six monitors throughout the building to find information about air and water quality, indoor and outdoor climate, electricity and gas consumption, public transport departure times and more.

Prologis created a "living zone" with special lighting and ventilation. This area—along with indoor and outdoor vegetation, as well as art inside the facility—create a pleasant environment for employees. The outdoor areas were designed for both beauty and functionality with, for example, a sitting area, herb bed and bicycle repair station.
