Sky Office Center with Extended BREEAM In-Use Certification, “Excellent” Rating

Hines, the international real estate firm, is pleased to announce that the Sky Office Center building at Gintrowskiego 31 in Warsaw received the decision to extend the BREEAM In-Use International certification: 2015 in the categories “Asset Performance” and “Building Management” with an “Excellent” rating.

In accordance with BREEAM certification scheme, Sky Office Center deploys solutions conducive to energy efficiency, reduced water consumption and optimal waste management. The design obtained very high scores for the use of certified materials and care for the health, comfort and well-being of the employees, i.a. owing to excellent lighting of the rooms with daylight. In the certification process, the location of Sky Office Center close to green areas was appreciated, as well as the available parking spaces and easy access to the city centre, airport and thoroughfares – for those commuting by public transport and by private cars alike.

“The extension of BREEAM certification for Sky Office Center proves the highest standards of office building management adhered to by Hines Polska. Green solutions deployed during operation of the building offer its users a high level of comfort. Creating the best possible work environment and minimizing the impact of the building on the external and internal landscape is a priority for us,” said Łukasz Pawikowski, asset manager at Hines Polska.

The BREEAM certification scheme was created in 1990 by BRE (Building Research Establishment) and is currently the most popular solution of this kind, used in Europe by investors and developers, as well as tenants. The certification process for the Sky Office Center building was conducted by Sweco Consulting.
