.KTW I is currently being executed at Rozdzieńskiego Avenue in Katowice. After the assessment of design stage by the associate judge, the building was awarded BREEAM Interim at the Excellent level. The result is 79.09%. The opening of the first office within .KTW is envisaged on June 1, 2018.
The high assessment for .KTW I results from implementation of many green solutions and comfortable space for tenants. What’s more, the location in the strict city center of Katowice is of great importance too, for the office building is well-communicated with the surroundings. It’s worth emphasizing that this is the first investment in the city with such a high result in the BREEAM New Construction 2013 system. The Excellent level is a determinant for the best projects that have already been implemented in the country, among which there are the Warsaw’s Q22, Centrum Praskie Koneser or Bałtyk from Poznań. We hope that the final certificate (Post Construction) will be also very satisfying – says Katarzyna Bednarczyk-Kozlowska, LEED AP BD+C, BREEAM International Assesor, Bilfinger Tebodin Poland.
We’ve designed a number of solutions that are friendly to both the environment and the employees working in .KTW I. There will be also greenery on the area of this new investment at Rozdzieńskiego 1 Avenue as well as in the adjacent spaces, which will be characterized by biodiversity in accordance with the requirements of BREEAM. What’s more, there will be places for charging electric cars, bicycle stands, showers, lockers for bicyclists and bicycle repair station inside the building. The key assets that influence the working environment quality are sport and recreation areas in the neighborhood as well as tram and bus stops. We believe that these facilities will provide our tenants with comfortable conditions for sustainable combination of working time with leisure time. Hence .KTW will turn out to be a great success – says Marian Garczarczyk, Project Director, TDJ Estate.
.KTW I is equipped with green technologies such as fast elevators with low power consumption and solutions that limit water consumption in toilets. The noise level in the office premises will be limited to 40dB whereas the air conditioning with effective heat recovery and the so called free cooling function will provide the right temperature.
