“LEED® Proven Provider™ designation is a natural step for Colliers International’s endeavor that began when launching LEED Certification services in 2011. Certification projects assisted by Colliers will benefit from a faster and simplified review process. I am extremely proud of the team’s great accomplishment”, stated Stefania Baldovinescu, Director of Real Estate Management Services within Colliers International Romania.
LEED® Proven Provider rewards high quality LEED projects and is granted to professionals whose strategies and practices promote sustainable and healthy development, while enhancing efficiency and saving resources for buildings. Only nine companies worldwide are designated with LEED® Proven Provider™ for LEED EB:O+M, a system developed to simplify the review process for companies proving highly qualitative services in administering LEED projects. Projects managed by LEED® Proven Provider™ consultants have higher chances of being certified faster and with fewer resources.
Colliers International has assisted the LEED certification process in the EMEA in almost 30 projects, totaling more than half million square metres, from among which more than 12 projects have been finalized by the Real Estate Management Services team in Romania. The most important projects are: AFI Park 1 and 2, Global City Business Park – BuildingO2, City Gate North Tower and City Gate South Tower in Bucharest.
Colliers International is one of the first real estate companies in Romania with LEED accreditation, which is an international symbol of exceptional quality for green buildings. In 2013, the Real Estate Management Services department of Colliers International Romania received the first LEED accreditation in Romania - Accredited Professional, for Existing Buildings Operations and Maintenance (LEED AP O+M), being the first consultant in Romania with an international LEED designation for the green certification of existing projects.
Colliers International is also one of the first real estate companies in Romania with accredited professionals to offer green certification advisory services after launching this dedicated service in 2011. Colliers offers consultancy for LEED and BREEAM certifications for both existing buildings, aiming to improve their performance and sustainability, and also for new developments.
