Integracja Foundation recognized building D of the Nowy Rynek office complex in Poznań as a building without barriers. This means that it is fully adapted to the needs of people with disabilities, parents with children, seniors and people who do not speak Polish. This is yet another investment by the Swedish developer designed in accordance with the requirements of the “Building without Barriers” certification.
Building D of the Nowy Rynek complex in Poznań provides approx. 39,000 sqm of innovative office space. It was commissioned in June 2021, and it’s the first investment in the region to have received the demanding WELL Core & Shell certification. It also received the prestigious WELL Health-Safety Rating certificate. This means that it has been designed with the most important needs of tenants in mind – a balanced, safe and healthy work space. Nowy Rynek D is also a place that has been fully prepared for the needs of people with disabilities, parents with children, seniors and those who do not speak Polish, this meeting the requirements of the "Building without Barriers" certification.
– Nowy Rynek was designed and built in such a way as to allow convenient access to any part of the building for people with various types of disabilities. Thanks to this, all users of the office building can fully, without physical limitations, actively participate in everyday work life. We have eliminated architectural barriers, such as thresholds, and created appropriately wide passages and elevators that have a voice function and panels of appropriate size marked in Braille. Offices and toilets, as well as the shower room, are wheelchair accessible – says Roland Jarosz, Project Director at Skanska’s commercial development business unit in CEE.
– We are very proud and happy to add yet another facility to our properties in Poland that meet the requirements of universal design and prove that we take all users into consideration, including our disabled tenants – says Ewa Pawłowska, President of Integracja Foundation.
Similar to the other buildings in the complex, Nowy Rynek D was designed with the well-being of its users in mind. A number of innovative solutions have been used here to ensure physical and mental comfort, such as access to fresh and properly humidified air and the optimal temperature inside the rooms. This is guaranteed by the ventilation and temperature control system, based on chilled beams, ensuring greater thermal comfort, cleaner air and quiet operation of the devices. Filters used in air handling units ensure air purity regardless of outdoor conditions.
Nowy Rynek accessible to all Poznań residents
Creating investments that are accessible to everyone, both tenants and residents of the immediate vicinity, is one of Skanska's priorities. Nowy Rynek offers not only office space, but also various services, such as a gym, day care and medical center. It is located at the crossroads of the most important communication lines, in the heart of a dynamically developing part of the city, surrounded by parks and the historic buildings of Poznań Wilda. Inside the complex, a green space has been designed, enriched with landscaping conducive to relaxation and get-togethers. In addition, the air is cleaner, thanks to the so-called green concrete sidewalk, which reduces the level of nitrogen oxide from car exhaust fumes that is harmful to health. This is the first such sidewalk in Poznań.
