Expo Business Park achieves three BREEAM Outstanding ratings

Expo Business Park has become the first new office development in Bucharest to achieve BREEAM Outstanding accreditation for sustainability, doing so for all three buildings.

The project, designed by Chapman Taylor for developers Portland Trust, ARES Management LP and Bluehouse Capital, was planned to the highest environmental standards from the outset, incorporating innovative building systems and renewable energy sources.

The 70,600m² GBA Expo Business Park development comprises three separate and self-contained office buildings set over a shared two-level basement parking structure.

The urban scale creates a context-appropriate transition zone between low-level residential villas to the south and east and the larger-scale buildings in the RomExpo area, such as the UniCredit Tower and the new Swissôtel tower. The buildings are set in a landscaped environment designed to create semi-public spaces with an attractive and relaxing atmosphere.

The scheme is located to the north-west of Bucharest city centre, with a metro station only four minutes’ walk away and a tram stop next to the site. It also benefits from its proximity to the city’s largest park, Regele Mihai I.

In December, Expo Business Park in Bucharest won three CIJ Romania Awards, including the Grand Prix award for “Project of the Year”.

Well done to Portland Trust and to everyone involved in the project for achieving a sustainability first for Bucharest.
