SWAN Office & Technology Park on the CEEQA 2012 Shortlist

12 April2012, 10:46 AM

SWAN was selected on the shortlists for the “Office Development of the Year” and “RealGreen Building of The Year” awards categories of the 2012 CEE Real Estate Quality Awards. These awards celebrate the accomplishments and overall business performance of leading companies, projects and professionals in 2011 across the CEE and SEE region.

Organised by CEE Insight Forum in association with the Financial Times and key industry partners, CEEQA’s coverage extends across 18 countries in central and southeast Europe recognising business excellence and showcasing the achievements of the sector to the international investment arena. The awards are widely recognised as the sector’s most respected monitor of achievement. They are free to enter, transparent and objective and are judged by a jury panel of senior representatives of market leading companies supervised by globally respected consulting firm Deloitte.

“It is particularly gratifying to be recognised by real estate professionals leading the industry. SWAN demonstrates that high-quality developments should not be ‘afraid’ to be green and that sustainable building design need not add significantly to project cost”, stated David Allen, Head of Real Estate at Chayton Capital, the firm financing the development.

SWAN Office & Technology Park, one of the most revolutionary office buildings delivered on the Romanian market last year, is the first project in Romania to achieve a “Post Construction” certificate under the BREEAM Europe 2009 regulations. BREAAM is the world’s leading design and assessment method for sustainable buildings. A BREEAM assessment uses recognised measures of performance, which are set against established benchmarks, to evaluate a building’s specification, design, construction and use. The measures used represent a broad range of categories and criteria from energy to ecology. They include aspects related to energy and water use, the internal environment (health and well-being), pollution, transport, materials, waste, ecology and management processes. SWAN received a coveted BREEAM certification of “Very Good” and is currently going through the assessment process to achieve an “Excellent” rating.

The short list for the 2012 CEE Real Estate Quality Awards, announced at a CEEQA@MIPIM reception in Cannes on 6th March, which was attended by more than 200 senior real estate executives from the sector's leading companies, recognizes the business performance and achievements of the nominated projects in 2011. The next round of judging for the awards will take place on 16th April with the final results and award presentations at the ninth annual CEEQA Gala & Industry Awards on 17th April in Warsaw.
