The nearly 58,000 square feet of office space, facilities, and design center were built in 561 days.
"Renault Bucharest Connected has been from the beginning an ambitious project, designed to meet the specific needs of our partner. It was not always easy, but we found together with our collaborators the best solutions to the challenges facing the construction market today. The care for those we host in our buildings is at the heart of our business model. We are next to the first moment we know each other and we offer them continuous support from the moment we become hosts, "said Dimitris Pergamalis, Head of Construction & Development at Globalworth.
The Renault Bucharest Connected construction started in August 2017 and the works were completed in February this year. The project includes 40,000 square meters of Class A offices, served by an underground floor of 10,000 sqm which includes approximately 240 parking spaces, plus the 760 on the surface. The project also includes a design center of 8,000 square meters, and the employees who will work here will also benefit from an amphitheater with a capacity of 350 seats for events. To all this, there are other facilities such as a restaurant, a gym and a medical office.
The project includes the highest energy efficiency standards and will be certified green BREEAM with the Excellence degree. Furthermore, Renault Bucharest Connected will be the first building of the Globalworth portfolio certified EDGE ( "Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies") provided by IFC, the World Bank's Investment Division. A building that receives this certification uses 20% less energy and water, which has a positive impact on maintenance costs.
Renault Bucharest Connected has low power consumption and maximum efficiency in space heating, cooling and ventilation. A distinct feature of the project is the two generous atriums that add extra natural light to office space, representing both a benefit to the well-being of employees and a reduction in maintenance costs. Moreover, this is amplified by the glass facade of the building, designed to minimize heat loss in winter.
