U Centre in Bucharest wins “Best Build-up in Development” Award at the 2020 CIJ Awards

The U Centre office complex in Bucharest, designed by Chapman Taylor, has won the “Best Build-up in Development” Award at the 2020 CIJ Awards.

The awards ceremony took place at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bucharest, where the award was collected by our clients, Forte Partners.

Located in the city’s Sector 4 at Calea Serban Voda, the 45,000m² GBA U Centre building provides Class A workspace across eight above-ground floors, with retail space at the ground floor and two basement levels for parking and services. A pleasant, landscaped courtyard welcomes visitors and occupants to the spacious reception lobby at ground floor level.

The façade design makes use of natural stone and aluminium composites to give an urban downtown feel, with wide upper-level terraces and a roof garden creating attractive spaces in which the building’s users can relax and interact.

U Centre is located close to the city’s Tineretului and Carol parks, making it perfectly placed for pleasant lunchtime strolls and post-work socialising. A metro station 100 metres away from the building provides easy access to the rest of the city.

The development has been designed to the highest levels of sustainability specification and has achieved LEED Platinum certification.

Chapman Taylor acted as Lead Architect on this attractive office scheme, supporting the local architect in applying for Building Permission and the client, Forte Partners, during the tendering process. The development is currently under construction.

Congratulations to Forte Partners and everyone involved with this innovative and sustainable development on this well-deserved award.
