The office in Warsaw, which was built at the end of the 1900s, was granted the BREEAM In-Use certificate at the Very Good level in the Asset Performance category. The certificate confirms the high standard of the building, application of modern technologies as well as very good long-term management policy. In spite of its age, WTT was granted a very good grade – it is not a frequent phenomenon to meet buildings maintained in such a good condition with a systematic care about their maintenance and meeting of environmental requirements – says Karolina Michalak, Project Manager, LEED AP of Sentient responsible for conducting the certification process.
WTT has been assessed under multi-criteria judgment concerning functioning of the building in its surrounding. Thanks to high grades in eight categories taken into account, the structure was granted the Very Good grade with the result of 63.1 per cent. This scoring system resulted from e.g. functional architectural project or good access to public communication.

It is proved by the BREEAM In-Use certificate granted to the structure, which also constitutes an independent confirmation of management and operational effectiveness quality of the building.
