POLAND Sky Office Center ‘Excellent’ once again

Green projects
Sky Office Center in Warsaw’s Służewiec office district, has once again obtained BREEAM In-Use ‘Excellent’ certification.

The building, which is owned by the Hines Poland Sustainable Income Fund managed by Hines, received a score of above 70 pct for its structure, the equipment and systems used (under the asset performance assessment) and building management, to give it a grade of ‘Excellent’ under the certification system.

The successful recertification of Sky Office Center is confirmation that it not only provides high-quality office space, but also meets all standards regarding its environmental aspects. Our tenants can therefore work in space that has a positive impact on the environment. For Hines, sustainable development and pro-environmental activities are extremely important, which makes us even more pleased that our efforts have once again been appreciated by sustainability experts.
Anna Żmijewska, a property manager at Hines Polska

Nesting boxes for birds were installed on the roofs of the building in December 2021 following an analysis by an ornithologist, who also supervised the entire nest-installation project. The boxes are to serve as bird sanctuaries and contribute to the preservation of protected species in urban ecosystems. They will be used by swifts and a number of other bird species and bats. There are also plans to create insect hotels at Sky Office Center.

Other similar initiatives already undertaken by Hines include the installation of beehives on the roof of Nestlé House on nearby ul. Domaniewska in 2020. This spring, nesting boxes for birds will also be installed on the roofs of Nestlé House and the Ambassador building (also in Służewiec).

Sky Office Center was completed in 2013 and acquired by the Hines Poland Sustainable Income Fund (HPSIF) in 2014. The six-storey building contains 4,360 sqm of leasable space. It is situated at the junction of ul. Rzymowskiego and ul. Modzelewskiego.
