Albania First BREEAM certificate in Albania

ESG
Park Avenue Tower in Tirana has become the first Albanian office project to secure BREEAM Design Stage certification with an Excellent rating.

The certificate affirms the integration of sustainable solutions into the technical design of the building and serves as an example of raising awareness among local investors on sustainable building methods at the European level. The process of certification was conducted by experts from Colliers Poland with support from the Colliers Albania team.

With its first BREEAM certified building, Albania will be able to promote the value of sustainable building methods to local stakeholders, whilst benefitting from the holistic approach of BREEAM to achieve ESG, health, and net zero goals. Businesses will play a crucial role in driving the change we need to see in the commercial buildings sector to achieve net zero, and projects like Park Avenue Tower should encourage other local investors – as well as those in Europe more widely – to follow suit and design buildings with sustainability at their core.
Jane Goddard, deputy CEO and chief marketing officer at BRE

Achieving green building validation is a significant breakthrough in Albania. It will contribute to raising the awareness of local investors on sustainable building methods at the European level, and potential end-users can start to expect such standards from landlords.
Edyta Chromiec, associate director in ESG Strategic Advisory, Colliers Poland

Located in the new urban centre of Tirana, Park Avenue Tower is a high-rise building that will be a part of the Park Avenue mixed-use complex. With nearly 13,000 sqm of office space, the tower is equipped with user-friendly amenities and pro-ecological solutions. The design of the Park Avenue Tower features a number of innovations to foster a healthy indoor environment, including installation of ventilation systems that minimise air pollution, as well as natural and artificial lighting that ensures visual comfort for users while also providing views. Extensive analysis has been conducted to assess the building's resilience to climate change scenarios, guaranteeing a thermally comfortable environment both presently and in the years to come. Park Avenue attains high accessibility requirements for the building and its inclusive design ensures that the building caters to pedestrians, cyclists, and individuals with disabilities.
