Green Court Bucharest, Skanska’s first investment in Romania

At the beginning of this year, Skanska has started construction works of the office project Green Court Bucharest, the company’s first investment in Romania. Located in Bucharest in the area Barbu Vacarescu – Floreasca, the project will consist of three office buildings connected through an inner court and will have a total office leasable area of 52,000 square meters.
Skanska entered the Romanian market in 2011 as an integrated construction and development company. Romania has been selected by Skanska as a ”home market”, a market that embraces the group’s commitment towards quality, sustainability and ethics, a country that offers great potential and leads to long-term business opportunities. Skanska has around 10,000 projects all around the world in the selected home markets in Europe, US and Latin America, ranking as one of the world’s leading project development and construction groups. Being also the general contractor of Green Court Bucharest, Skanska controls the value chain, ensuring deliverability. All company investments in Romania undergo LEED certification process, confirming their compliance with the principles of sustainable development, optimal energy consumption and superior work environment.
The first phase of Green Court Bucharest has obtained LEED Gold pre-certification and will feature numerous innovative solutions to minimize the buildings’ environmental footprint. Featuring modern technologies, such as a highly energy efficient façade and occupancy lighting sensors, the class A office building will have 19,500 square meters of leasable space and will consists of 11 above-ground and 3 underground storeys. On the 10th floor, an area has been designated for an extensive green roof, in order to comply with the environmental conditions and to create a view of the terrace area, for the upper levels.  Being built in Barbu Vacarescu – Floreasca, which has developed into the most dynamic sub-market in the city, it will offer excellent access to important communication routes, including also the city airport. Additionally, the building will provide bicycle storage, showers and changing rooms, along with charging stations for electric cars. The office building will be delivered by the end of 2014.
