ESG Building Certification as a benefit for Investors

The gradual increase of the certification score at Anděl Park office building in Prague is the result of our continuous professional and proactive asset management, project management and leasing skills, combined with our extensive experience with the certification processes.

Anděl Park ESG Case Study - Building Certification

  

1 The Opportunity

Our long-term cooperation with the active and open-minded owner of Anděl Park who we provide with a comprehensive set of asset management, project management and leasing services allows us to continuously improve the building’s quality and its BREEAM In-Use certification score. During our progress towards achieving the Excellent certification level in 2021, we implemented upgrades that impacted the property’s quality in terms of:

 • PERFORMANCE & IMPACT
The building’s operational performance improved, its environmental impact reduced, costs saved

IMPROVEMENT PLAN & GUIDELINES
Clear roadmap established, comprehensive guidelines for gradual improvement of the asset obtained, higher certification score achieved

TENANT APPEAL
Tenant retention and satisfaction increased, high occupancy rates maintained

ASSET LIQUIDITY
The property’s attractivity for a wider pool of investors enhanced through globally recognized ESG credentials

2 The Solution

We view certification as a tool, not a target. Before any upgrade or improvement is performed on the property, we look for the best solution by referring to the BREEAM In-Use requirements. With the guidance of BREEAM In-Use, we have enhanced the quality of Anděl Park through:

• New technical standard of the property
• Improvement of the standard restrooms throughout the building with low water consumption equipment, LED lighting, light sensors
• Reconstruction of the greenery on the terraces
• Fully equipped cycling facility with changing rooms, showers, and a bike storage room
• Fitness studio with regular classes for tenants
• Facilities and services for tenants, e.g. e-shop pick-up points
• Implementing a tenant-retention plan
• Occupier community engagement programs: special events, BBQ, breakfasts, meetings, partnership with local providers (special offers, etc.)
• Proactive communication with the tenants – meetings, events, etc.

The gradual increase of the certification score at Anděl Park office building in Prague is the result of our continuous professional and proactive asset management, project management and leasing skills, combined with our extensive experience with the certification processes.
