Skanska respects its beneficiaries
Green Court Bucharest is the first office space project developed in Romania by Sweden’s Skanska Group. Green Court Bucharest, located in the Floreasca-Barbu Vacarescu area, integrates green solutions such as a glass façade with low thermal transfer, enhanced input of fresh air which contributes to a healthy work environment, natural lighting in over 85 per cent of the work spaces, efficient lighting systems with movement and intensity sensors, fueling points for electric cars, parking areas for bicycles and facilities for cyclists.
After they managed to fill-in over 90 per cent of the space through contracts signed with the Orange and Schneider Electric groups, the Swedes have also started working on the second building of the Green Court project, a building that will be completed next summer, Skanska representatives giving the sensation that they are just “warming up.”
“We are very selective when choosing the markets we enter,” Claes Larsson, the Swedish group’s executive vice president, stated at the inauguration of the first building. “It’s necessary for the market we enter to have common values with those of our group and I can state that the completion of this building three years after our arrival in Romania represents a big accomplishment. Our vision is long-term and the completion of this project represents a guarantee for us,” Larsson added.
Skanska is both constructor and real-estate developer, and the Swedish group’s model is to sell the properties constructed in order to obtain the necessary funds with which to build new projects.
