Platinium IV with LEED Gold
Warsaw, February 6, 2017 – Platinium IV office building owned by Allianz has gained LEED EBOM (for existing buildings) Gold certificate. The certification process was conducted by international advisory company Colliers International.
Platinium IV office building is one of five class A office buildings forming Platinium Business Park complex, located in the Mokotów district of Warsaw, at the intersection of Domaniewska and Wołoska streets. The five buildings offer a total of 58,200 sqm of modern space allowing flexible floor arrangement, a comfortable environment for occupiers with excellent public transport access and visibility. A unique feature of the complex is the park and lake located amongst the buildings.
“We are delighted that Platinium IV has been accredited with LEED EBOM Gold. This is the second building at Platinium Business Park to have achieved a LEED Gold certificate which reflects our commitment both to sustainability and occupier satisfaction” said Meike Feistkorn, Allianz Real Estate Germany GmbH, Asset Manager of Platinium Business Park.
“The certification strategy for Platinium Business Park IV was constructed to balance environmental, social and economic aspects of the building’s operations. Whilst implementing ecological improvements, such as tap water reductions, minimizing unsustainable cleaning chemicals, implementing new building operation plans or installing occupancy sensors, we have been carefully looking at the various impacts of those changes on occupier comfort and operation costs. Thanks to the close cooperation between the property manager, facility managers, owner and LEED consultants Platinium Business Park IV was awarded with 67 points, more than 10% above the Gold level certification threshold of 60 points, which is a major success,” said Andrzej Gutowski, Senior Associate, Green Building Certification, Colliers International.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an American system of building certification awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED-certified buildings are resource efficient. They use less water and energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
