Workplaces by SKANSKA
The Workplaces concept is a Skanska innovation released and implemented worldwide since 2013, which is now available in Green Court Bucharest. The concept is based on four sustainable development principles: work environment, location and placemaking, tenant profitability and green.
Work environment: Skanska’s goal is to create excellent work environments where businesses and people can thrive. A healthy and inspiring work environment stimulates creativity and collaboration, reflects the values of companies and helps attract the best employees. This is why everybody working in Green Court Bucharest will be able to enjoy an interior courtyard with numerous green spaces, networking areas and free Wi-Fi connection, suitable for breaks or creative working sessions. In addition, they will have at their disposal lockers, showers and biker facilities.
Location and placemaking: Skanska is committed to providing places that contribute to the urban environment, but also places for people to connect with customers, co-workers and communities. In Romania, Green Court Bucharest is built on Gara Herastrau Street, in the Floreasca – Barbu Vacarescu area, one of the office locations in Bucharest with the highest potential. Easy access to the city Centre and airport and proximity to public transportation are some of the advantages of this location.
Tenant profitability: Modern and innovative workplaces contribute to higher productivity, less sick-leave and enhanced flexibility to meet future needs and reach higher levels of profitability. Reliability, savings and productivity are the key features of the new workplaces in Green Court Bucharest. Tenants will benefit from personalized working spaces, easily adaptable for future needs, in which their employees will be healthier and happier.
Green: The first step towards sustainability is green building and this is why Skanska uses technologies that make buildings more resource-efficient, more comfortable, healthier and better equipped, while controlling the risks of rising energy costs. Green Court Bucharest makes no exception, so the project is built following the principles of sustainable development which translate into innovative solutions for reducing the building’s impact on the environment and also for lowering the operational costs of the building.
