On June 9th the official opening of Deloitte House, the first GreenBuilding in Poland, is made by Gunnar Haglund, Business Promotion Counsellor from the Embassy of Sweden together with Nicklas Lindberg, CEO of Skanska Property Poland.
Deloitte House constitutes the next stage of the highly successful Atrium complex developed by Skanska along al. Jana Pawła in the city centre of Warsaw. This modern A-class office building offers 20.000 square meters office space on 14 levels and a 3-storey underground parking lot for more than 200 vehicles. 95% of the building is already leased.
The building is the seventh project developed by Skanska in cooperation with Kazimierski&Ryba architects. Among the advantages one may find the localization and functionality. The open floor plan, without any internal columns, enables an efficient and flexible design of interiors and excellent access of daylight. A raised floor system ensures full flexibility in cabling distribution. According to Skanska’s ecological policy, Deloitte House is conveniently located near the city communication centers: in only 3 minutes one can get to the Central Railway Station, in 7 to the nearest underground station. There are also 15 bus lines and 5 tram lines running nearby. In that way Skanska encourages tenants to leave their cars at home and come to work by public transport.
Deloitte House is the first and so far only Polish commercial building awarded the GreenBuilding certificate by the European Commission. GreenBuilding is a program of the European Commission which was launched in early 2005 in order to improve the use of potential energy savings in non-residential buildings. A certified building must meet the condition of at least 25% saving on energy against the energy norms in the given country. Deloitte House not only meets the requirements but has – according to calculations made by external consulting company ProBe – 32,5% lower consumption of energy than is required by the Polish norms.
Many leading companies has chosen Deloitte House for their offices: Deloitte, King Sturge, Skarbnica Narodowa, Nordea Bank, AIG Bank, Skanska Property Poland, HRS, Delta Optical. In the building there is also the first Green Branch – unique eco bank unit of Deutsche Bank. For lunch users can visit Street restaurant at the ground floor.
