Home » News » UNITED BUSINESS CENTER 3 IN IULIUS TOWN TIMIȘOARA – THE ONLY LEED PLATINUM CERTIFIED OFFICE BUILDING OUTSIDE THE CAPITAL CITY

The class A office building achieved the maximum score in categories such as enabling alternative transportation options, energy performance and the quality of construction materials * This is the first office building outside of Bucharest to achieve the highest LEED certification and the third of its kind in Romania by the score it achieved * All the 12 office buildings in the IULIUS portfolio are “green buildings”

 

The United Business Center 3 (UBC 3) office building in the Iulius Town Timișoara mixed-use project was recently awarded the highest LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, i.e. Platinum according to the Building Design and Construction: Core and Shell standard by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). UBC 3 is thus the first office building outside the capital city to achieve this mark of excellence and its score (88) also puts it in the top three ranked buildings nationwide. The UBC 1 building in the same mixed-use project was also recently awarded the LEED Gold certificate per the same standard. “The results we obtained substantiate the commitment of IULIUS Company to develop more than just modern office buildings, namely future-focused buildings that are sustainable, energy efficient and environmentally friendly. All the projects developed by IULIUS are built and operated in line with green building principles and we are glad that our portfolio includes a building holding the highest sustainability certification, namely Platinum”, said Laurențiu Manea, Office Buildings Manager Iulius Town Timișoara.

 

The office buildings developed by IULIUS implement technological strategies and solutions for achieving high levels of performance and cost optimization. They are designed to provide extensive premises with high levels of natural lighting, achieved via façades made of glass that is specially treated for thermal efficiency. These projects facilitate urban mobility, being fitted with changing rooms and showers for those who ride their bikes to work. Moreover, the buildings are fitted with an integrated management system that enables the centralization of all the building monitoring and control systems on a single platform, ensuring efficient management, reduced operating costs and maximum levels of security. Such systems are implemented in projects such as the Dubai and Singapore airports or the O2 Arena in Berlin. In the certification process, UBC 3 excelled in categories such as connectivity, enabling alternative transportation, innovative design, reduction of water consumption, energy performance, recycled or low-emitting materials, these being some of the parameters for which the building achieved maximum scores. This is an excellent result, which boosts Timișoara to the top of «green» cities in Romania”, stated Răzvan Nica, Managing Director at BuildGreen, the consulting company that obtained the certification.

 

Green indoors, green outdoors

In addition to being designed to achieve high performances in terms of resource consumption, UBC 3 also benefits from the generous presence of the park in Iulius Town Timișoara. Moreover, the garden flows into the building as the lobby features Mediterranean-inspired areas, where employees can relax on the sofas set among olive trees. The natural features are also carried into the exterior terraces on the 1st and 2nd floor, where dozens of maples, hornbeams and ginkgo biloba trees have been planted.
