Budapest ONE office building receives WELL and BREAM certifications
The first phase of Futureal Group’s Budapest ONE office building, already completed, has received WELL Health-Safety certification, which focuses on the health and well-being of employees. In addition, the second and third phases of the complex, currently under development, have obtained the BREEAM Excellent Design Stage environmental certification, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The 65,000 m² office complex is expected to be fully completed in the second half of 2022.
The international WELL Health-Safety rating, which assesses the safe operation of buildings, assesses six main aspects: appropriate cleaning and disinfection of the office building, emergency preparedness, availability of medical personnel, quality air and water, communication with tenants and innovative approach.
With more than 25,000 square meters of space already completed, the first phase of Budapest ONE has met WELL’s requirements, according to the press release.
Located in Hungary‘s largest multimodal hub, at the intersection of Kelenföld station, metro line 4 and M1-M7 highways, the second phase of the building, covering almost 20,000 m², and the third phase , covering 19,000 m², were both structurally complete by May 2021. Tenants are expected to start moving into both buildings in the second half of this year. In the meantime, both phases have received excellent ratings from the international building rating system BREEAM, which assessed their sustainability performance.
“Providing a pleasant, inspiring, healthy, green and safe working environment for its employees, in addition to an excellent location, has become a priority for tenants. We are therefore particularly proud that Budapest ONE fully meets both the human and the environment At Futureal, we are committed to developing all our office buildings to the highest WELL and BREEAM standards in the future,” said László Németh, Head of Sustainability at Futureal.
Also in response to market needs, Futureal has launched the Stay Safe initiative, which will apply new health and safety standards and technological solutions in the development of Budapest ONE. The complex will also include a 500-meter panoramic athletics track on its roof and underground parking to charge electric bicycles and scooters, in addition to electric cars.
