Certification of Buildings (BREEAM, LEED)

Sustainably designed buildings cost less to operate and have excellent energy performance. Whether the building is new or a retrofit we support our Clients in reducing and improving its environmental footprint.

Looking at whole lifecycle design

We take into account the whole lifecycle of the building, from earliest stages of design through construction and operation to demolition. We believe that the decisions taken in the early design stages are crucial for the operational perfomance of a building, whether this is an office, retail or industrial facility. Our experts provide sustainability advice for green building design as well as assess buildings' performance in BREEAM and LEED certification schemes.

Over 40 realised green building assessments

Since registering the first green certification project in Poland in 2009, we support our Clients in the local property and construction sector to reduce negative environmental impact and improve buildings' performance. We coordinate our work with other disciplines at WSP to ensure integrated approach, which takes into account sustainability premises.

The examples include Sterlinga Business Center in Łódź for Hines Polska, where WSP's mechanical and electrical designs have been assessed by our experts during BREEAM In-Use certification process, achieving Excellent rating, or office complex Park Rozwoju in Warsaw for Echo Investment, where BREEAM International Office certification conducted by WSP followed the mechanical and electrical engineering services.

We have provided certification for many exciting projects in Poland and abroad, including:

  • BREEAM International Office and Retail certification for Plac Unii mixed-use development in Warsaw, which received CEE Green Building Award in 2011 and 2012,
  • BREEAM International Retail certification for FASHION HOUSE Outlet Centre in Moscow and St Petersburg,
  • BREEAM International Industrial certification for Buildings 5 and 6 in the PointPark Poznan logistics park, being the first industrial certification in Poland.
