POLAND Hala Koszyki upgraded to ‘Excellent’

Green projects
The food hall of Hala Koszyki in Warsaw has been upgraded to a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certificate.

The revitalised former market hall, which is owned and managed by Globalworth, had previously been BREEAM certified at the ‘Very Good’ level. The new Excellent rating is the result of the introduction of several changes, mainly in the field of management, which have made the building even more sustainable and environmentally-friendly.

BREEAM In-Use is a multi-criteria certification system for existing buildings. The certificates are valid for a minimum period of two years. Both the pro-environmental measures used in the building and the effectiveness of the facility management are assessed. The certification also takes into account the quality of the internal environment, the energy efficiency, the access to public transport, the construction materials used, the building’s operational management, and the water and waste management.

The Art Nouveau-style Hala Koszyki was designed by architect Juliusz Dzierżanowski and completed over 100 years ago on ul. Koszykowa in central Warsaw on the site of the then Koszyki farm. After extensive rebuilding, it reopened in autumn 2016 as a social and culinary complex, with 16,000 sqm office space and 6,500 sqm of retail and services.
