Varso Tower awarded the highest level of BREEAM Interim certification

The tower designed by Foster + Partners and constructed by HB Reavis in the Warsaw centre will stand out not only for the quality of its architecture. Varso Tower is currently the world’s tallest office building under construction that was certified “Outstanding” against the BREEAM Interim certification scheme, the highest grade possible.

A few cranes have already appeared next to the Warsaw Central Station. This means that buildings that are part of the ongoing Varso Place project will soon begin to make a presence on the Warsaw skyline. The tallest building, a 310-metre tower including the spire, is planned to complete in 2020. Its creators are already working to make it a friendly place for the neighbourhood and its users.

Reviewing Varso Tower, BREEAM experts also recognised its energy and water saving solutions. These include energy-efficient air conditioning, heating and lighting systems, leak control systems, water-saving bathroom fittings and the use of rainwater to plant greenery inside and outside the building. Those solutions are expected to reduce energy consumption by almost 23% and plant water use by half.

All main elements of Varso Tower were analysed for their environmental impact. In particular, the analysis will help reduce carbon dioxide emissions during the operation of the building. Finishing materials used in the building will contain no toxic substances. In addition, construction waste is sorted and recycled.

In addition to the BREEAM Interim certificate awarded based on an assessment of design solutions and construction work methods, Varso Tower is the first office building in Poland to boast a WELL Core & Shell pre-certificate awarded by the International WELL Building Institute.
