Globalworth, a leading office investor in Romania and Poland, has received BREEAM Certification at Excellent level for Tower 1 and Tower 2, the first two office buildings from Globalworth Campus project in Bucharest. The certification recognizes the high standards of sustainability and the healthy working environment of the 57,000 sqm of Class A office spaces in the complex located in northern part of the city.
“As a leading company in the office market, one of our objectives is to set new standards, to offer our partners workspaces where their business can flourish, and their teams can meet their highest potential. And a way to achieve this is by providing them with an environmentally-friendly space, which is essential both for the wellbeing of the people spending time in our buildings and for the communities in which we operate. That’s why, the BREEAM certification we achieved for Tower 1 and Tower 2 is not only an important recognition of the high-quality standards that the building meets, but also a new step towards our goal, to develop a greener portfolio”, said Dimitris Pergamalis, Head of Construction & Development at Globalworth.
All standing office properties in Globalworth’s portfolio in Romania have green certification, most of them with BREEAM Excellent/LEED Gold or higher certifications. Moreover, Globalworth Tower, one of the buildings developed by the company and completed in 2016, was the first building in Romania and the broader SEE region to have received the highest available green accreditation, namely LEED Platinum.
Tower 1 was finalized in July 2017 and has an area of 29,000 sqm of Class A offices, leased to well-established multinationals such as Amazon, Mindspace and Honeywell. The building extends over 12 floors and two underground levels and offers its tenants an environmentally friendly work environment, green areas, natural light on each floor and a diversified retail component with various facilities, providing the clearest picture of how work-life balance looks like.
The second building in Globalworth Campus, Tower 2, was developed according to the same high-standards and was delivered in April 2018, offering another 28,000 sqm. leased to companies such as Stefanini Romania, Mazars Romania, Chain IQ and P4Cards.
The last office building is currently under construction and will have a leasable area of approximately 35,000 sqm. Moreover, by the end of 2019, the project will be complemented by one of Bucharest’s largest conference centres, providing the infrastructure for a continuous learning process for companies and employees alike.
