Prosta Office Centre with BREEAM certificate

Managed by Colliers and owned by AMASI Grundstücksgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG., the Warsaw office building Prosta Office Centre has been awarded a BREEAM certificate at Very Good level. The rating applies to both the Building Efficiency (Part 1) and the Management Efficiency (Part 2) parts of the certificate. 

“The office building scored maximum points in the waste management category. Moreover, it was recognised for its excellent location that enables convenient accessibility from various parts of the city. Such a good score was also the result of the procedures introduced in the building. They promote, among others, the reduction of the negative impact of the property on the environment and the increase of user comfort”, says Marcin Szumski, an expert in Green Building Certification Services at Colliers. 

Prosta Office Centre is one of the most characteristic buildings in Warsaw's Wola district – an emerging business district in the centre of the capital. The 9-storey class A office building, located in the immediate vicinity of the Daszyńskiego roundabout at 51 Prosta Street, offers nearly 19,000 sq m of office space and 800 sq m of retail and service space. A Ghelamco project, the building was commissioned in 2007. Since January 1, Prosta Office Centre has been the property of the German company AMASI Grundstücksgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG, managed by KGAL Investment Management GmbH & Co. KG, a leading independent asset and investment manager of various types of real estate globally. The building's tenants include Gremi Media S.A., IT Coders Lab School, Monedo Polska, Grey/Poland and the optician Optique.

“We are glad to have been able to guide the property through the certification process, with the support of the new owner. A comprehensive ecological analysis of the building and the outdoor spaces, as well as the implementation of ecological procedures related to the property management, compliant with the requirements of the Building Research Establishment, have been successfully completed. It is important that environmental care become one of the priorities for the real estate market. We are pleased that our efforts in this regard have been appreciated by an international organisation", says Agnieszka Krzekotowska, partner and director of Property Management at Colliers.

The BREEAM building certification system was developed in the UK in response to the need to introduce sustainable construction at all stages of a building's life cycle, from the design process, through construction, to the use and demolition phase. The certificate is awarded by the BRE organisation (Building Research Establishment) on the basis of materials and a report prepared by a licensed assessor. BREEAM takes into account many issues that characterise a building or a leasable area. The BREEAM assessment may cover, among others, newly constructed buildings (BREEAM NC), buildings in use (BREEAM In-Use), renovated buildings and leasable area (BREEAM RFO).
