GTC received LEED Gold certification for Cascade Office Building, located near Victoriei Square, in Bucharest’s Central Business District (CBD). Thus, now all the five office buildings owned by the company in Romania are Gold warranted, in different crediting systems. GTC recently announced that starting 2021, it uses renewable energy sources for all these buildings, as part of the company’s commitment to providing clean energy for its assets all over Europe.

Cascade Office Building is one of the iconic office projects in Bucharest, situated in a key area of the city, on Strada Buzești 62-64, at 7minute walking distance from Victoriei Square and 20-minute drive from Henri Coandă International Airport. The 4.210 sqm building was completed in 2005 and includes energy-saving and many other modern elements such as smart lighting, ventilation systems or local temperature controllers, access control and CCTV monitoring.

"Obtaining the LEED Gold certification for Cascade Office Building is a major accomplishment for our sustainability agenda that was reassumed in our 2020 ESG report. GTC’s commitment in the future is to develop or acquire only highly efficient green buildings with energy-saving solutions that respect the environment and provide the tenants’ employees with the best working conditions. Right now we are in the middle of a complicated climate, created by the pandemic. I think we can surpass all the challenges of this period by adapting to the new way of work and upgrading our buildings in every possible way. Currently, thanks to the hard work of our Romanian team, each square meter of our projects located here is Gold certified, which is a very important achievement,” commented Ziv Gigi, Managing Director of GTC Romania.
