OPENVILLE’S UNITED BUSINESS CENTER 2 – THE ONLY LEED® CERTIFIED OFFICE BUILDING IN TIMIȘOARA

06 / FEB

U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) awarded the office building its LEED® Gold certification as per the LEED 2009 international standard for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance.

 

United Business Center 2 (UBC 2) adds up to 18,000 sqm leasable area and was opened in early 2017. The building is a part of the Openville Timișoara mixed-use project currently developed by IULIUS and Atterbury Europe in the vicinity of Iulius Mall.

 

“UBC 2 became the first office building in Timișoara to be certified per the American LEED® standard. The criteria that earned the project very good scores were public transportation accessibility, water consumption efficiency within the building and energy efficiency,” said Anca Mitrea, Senior Associate with the department of green certifications at Colliers International, the real estate consulting company that provided the consulting services for the certification process. The LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system developed by USGBC is the most important program for buildings, homes and communities that are designed, built, maintained and operated for the purpose of improving their performance in terms of environmental and human health.

 

UBC 2 benefits from enhanced levels of natural lighting, automatic indoor light intensity regulator, smart automation system for electrical systems, state-of-the-art ventilation systems that ensure a constant temperature and an optimal volume of fresh air, façades in special glass providing thermal insulation and sun protection, etc. “The office buildings in the Openville mixed-use project will shape the regional business hub and are built to provide maximum comfort and efficiency, so that the presence in the UBC community in itself will be a calling card for our partners. Achieving the LEED® Gold certificate is the acknowledgement of our commitment to deliver premium office spaces – all the more given that the certification process focused not only on the period during which the works were performed, but also on the operating sustainability”, noted Laurențiu Manea, Office Buildings Manager at Openville.

 

The LEED® Gold certification was awarded to the UBC 2 building for its implementation of practical and measurable strategies and solutions geared towards achieving enhanced performance in terms of sustainable site development, savings in water consumption, energy efficiency, choice of materials and indoor environmental quality. Moreover, one of the appreciated aspects was the fact that employees are encouraged to choose non-polluting means of transportation, as the building is fitted with bicycle parking facilities, showers and locker rooms.

 

The companies that run their business in UBC 2 and enjoy these amenities are as follows: Ness Software Engineering Services, Veoneer, ACI Worldwide, Azets Insight, Convergys, PwC Romania, Bitdefender, the branches of CEC Bank and ProCredit Bank, as well as REGINA MARIA Polyclinic and the retailer dm drogerie markt.
