3 Infopark buildings owned by Wing get BREEAM certification
Infopark buildings B, C and I, all owned by Wing, received BREEAM-In-Use "Very Good" sustainability certification, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The company says that it places great focus on the sustainability and the environmental impact of its buildings. As a result, Wing’s major developments have been constructed with a commitment to sustainability for over 10 years now, and buildings completed earlier are continuously being modernized. The BREEAM-In-Use assessment of all three buildings in Infopark was carried out by Gamma Properties Kft.
BREEAM-In-Use is a sustainability-based assessment method for completed buildings, covering eight sustainability categories. In addition to energy and water efficient management and operation, selective waste collection, and a green environment, the buildings in Infopark were designed with the well-being and health of the users and the maintenance and potential future conversion of the buildings in mind.
“We thoroughly enjoyed working with Wing Zrt. on the assessment of the Infopark buildings. The infrastructure and the modern solutions used in the buildings fully substantiate the 'Very Good' rating. Over the years we have seen that sustainability certification is getting to be more and more important both for offices and for industrial-logistics buildings, and the BREEAM-In-Use certification is a suitable framework for this,” said Ágnes Kiss, BREEAM assessor at Gamma Properties Kft.
Ernő Takács, deputy manager at Wing Zrt. noted, “For over 10 years, WING’s office buildings have been constructed with a commitment to sustainability. The Ericsson and Siemens-evosoft headquarters buildings were designed and constructed in accordance with the environmental and energy efficiency considerations of the LEED Gold standard of environmental consciousness. The Telekom HQ has energy-efficient devices, water-saving bathroom fittings and selective waste collection processes in accordance with BREEAM Excellent requirements, managed by a complex monitoring and energy management system. Of course it is not only at new developments where sustainability criteria are considered: we keep refurbishing the buildings we completed earlier to decrease their ecological footprint and work towards a more sustainable future."
Located in District XI at the Buda end of the Rákóczi bridge, Infopark is the first innovation and technology park in Eastern Central Europe, a hub in particular for IT, telecommunications and software development companies.
