New City with BREEAM In-Use “Excellent” certificate.

The New City office complex, which is managed by Hines Polska for Hines Global REIT fund, has received a prestigious BREEAM In-Use certificate in the “Asset” and “Building Management” categories with “Excellent” grade.

“Receiving BREEAM In-Use ‘Excellent’ certificate for New City is an acknowledgement of the commitment to tenants’ comfort, the natural environment and management of buildings in a sustainable and effective way, which is in line with Hines’ standards,” said Przemysław Iznerowicz, project director at Hines Polska.

The very high rating was mainly a result of the efficient building management procedures, in particular the attention to energy efficiency improvement. The complex also stands out for its use of environmentally-friendly construction materials and commitment to minimise environmental pollution, for example through implementing waste management procedures. The auditors also appreciated the great location of the complex and amenities for tenants, such as Singu CarPooling, an innovative carpooling platform launched this March.

BREEAM is the most widely used quality assessment scheme for buildings used in Europe by investors, developers and tenants.
