The certification process concerning the skyscraper started in January of the current year. In order to meet demands of S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the investor introduced some changes in the building which led to decrease in water consumption by 43,6 per cent. Moreover, he installed a ventilation system with a better air filtering rate and performed a few audits of systems responsible for energy consumption. Jointly, the introduced changes decreased the costs of energy consumption by 9 per cent.
We are very glad that Warsaw Financial Center received LEED Gold certificate. We have been consequently implementing a program concerning eco-friendly changes from the date of its purchase in 2012. It confirms that existing buildings may be also efficient and ecological – comments Karol Bartos, Executive Director Portfolio & Asset Management in Tristan Capital Partners. – The receiving of LEED Gold certificate would not be possible without a prominent help of our tenants. Their every-day engagement and pro-ecological approach were crucial to a positive finalization of the certification. I would like to thank for support of this project – adds Karol Bartos.
