Rondo 1, an office building in Warsaw for which global real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield acts as property manager, has been recertified LEED Platinum, the certification in environmental sustainability awarded to in-use buildings. The office building received the top rating once more, improving its performance on the previous certification.
The prestigious office building located at 1 ONZ Roundabout has received LEED Platinum certification under LEED v4.1 O+M (Building Operations and Maintenance), having scored 85 points, four more than in the previous certification. The certification was carried out by JW+A.
The recertification process consisted in a comprehensive analysis of Rondo 1’s operations and maintenance, and included an energy audit and a thermal comfort survey among occupants, as well as water efficiency and waste management.
