BREEAM Excellent for Q22 office building
The 155-metre Q22 office building, which is being developed by Echo Investment in the centre of Warsaw, obtained a BREEAM Interim Excellent certificate with the highest result in this category in Poland.
The Q22 office building had a result of 79.1 percent in the certification process carried out by Buro Happold, which placed it first in a small group of office buildings that obtained BREEAM Excellent.
“Q22 is a project which has been developed with the comfort of future users and a high standard in mind. Thanks to the fact that all the most important aspects of certification have been fulfilled, Q22 is an excellent example of what can be achieved through responsible and sustainable approach to design,” said Katarzyna Murdoch, BREEAM engineer, BREEAM International assessor at Echo Investment.
So far only ten other office projects in the country obtained a BREEAM certificate at the excellent level (including Park Rozwoju – Echo Investment’s project in Warsaw). Its elements which have been appreciated include: energy efficiency, materials used, healthy working environment and waste management.
The design of Q22 was created in the renowned Kuryłowicz & Associates architectural studio in cooperation with Buro Happold Polska. The completion of the construction of the office building is planned for Q1 2016. The project is valued at PLN 500 million.
