The Quadrio multipurpose centre in Prague's Národní Třída has obtained LEED Silver international green building certification. "The LEED Silver green certification confirms that Quadrio is a unique and high-quality project also in terms of environmental sustainability," said Petr Beránek, Project Director, who accepted the certificate on behalf of CPI Property Group.
"Obtaining LEED Silver certification involves meeting mandatory requirements for the design and construction process, including the type of building materials, reducing the consumption of drinking water and the energy required to operate the building and the quality of the indoor climate," said Jiří Dobiáš of Arcadis, which prepared the certification documentation for Quadrio.
LEED is recognised globally for its comprehensive assessment of buildings which differ from other certification systems mainly by its focus on reducing the energy consumption needed to operate buildings. By achieving a Silver LEED rating, Quadrio is ranked among the buildings that have gone through the same evaluation system, which, for example, guarantees a high standard of indoor environmental quality, elimination of pollutant emissions, the amount of supplied ventilation air and efficient indoor lighting.
Quadrio already has a wide range of achievements to its name, such as awards for the best office project and most environmentally friendly building in the CIJ Awards, first place in the administrative centres category of the Best of Realty competition, and a recent prize at the CEEQA 2015 gala for best building in the CEE region.
