A new building at Panattoni Park Stříbro has been rated Outstanding, the highest level in the BREEAM New Construction sustainability assessment. Panattoni has thus confirmed the high quality of its portfolio of over 720,000 sqm of BREEAM certified buildings.
The new building with a floor area of almost 28,000 sqm was completed in just six months, which is unusual given the high standard of the building.
"Our tenth building at Panattoni Park Stříbro has been built from its inception as a showcase within the real estate and automotive industry without compromising on environmental and sustainability. A production building literally riddled with automation and technology deserves such an approach. The construction process, the building materials used and the implementation of state-of-the-art technologies resulted in achieving the highest level of certification, which only confirmed our leading position on the Czech market in sustainable industrial construction," said Pavel Sovička, Panattoni's General Manager for the Czech Republic and Slovakia, adding that Panattoni currently has 12 more projects in the Czech Republic undergoing the BREEAM New Construction certification process, covering an area of almost 750,000 sqm.
The use of state-of-the-art technologies within the building has enabled a 50% reduction in energy consumption and 65% reduction in daily water consumption, while CO2 emissions are 62% lower than the average reference building. More than 89% of the waste generated during construction activities was recovered. The excellent thermal insulation of the envelope and roof structure, among other things, contributed to the reduction in energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
BREEAM New Construction is a quality and sustainability rating system for newly constructed buildings that Panattoni uses for all projects in its portfolio.
In terms of the levels achieved, Panattoni Parks are the most environmentally friendly buildings in the Czech industrial construction market.
After obtaining the Outstanding certification of the newly completed building in Panattoni Park Stříbro, Panattoni can boast a built portfolio that reaches almost 1,500,000 sqm of buildings with the certification process already obtained or underway. Four newly built industrial halls in locations in different parts of the Czech Republic aspire to the Outstanding level at the same time.
