(PRESS RELEASE) AMSTERDAM, 6-Oct-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — CTP, the largest developer and manager of industrial and logistics space in Continental Europe, has achieved the first BREEAM Outstanding certification for an industrial building in its portfolio in Romania, BUW 20-21, with an area of over 100,000 sqm, part of CTPark Bucharest West.

Located west of Bucharest, at km 23 on the A1 motorway, CTPark Bucharest West has established itself as the largest industrial park in Romania and in the CTP network, a developer present in 10 countries. CTPark Bucharest West has a leasable area of more than 778,000 sqm and hosts more than 2,500 employees working permanently in the industrial park.

Ana Dumitrache, Managing Director, CTP Romania, said:

“A regional logistics hub, covering both the Balkans and regions such as Turkey and the Middle East, including Cyprus, CTPark Bucharest West is a unique project in the industrial park market, not only in terms of size, but also in terms of the quality of life enjoyed by the employees of the companies in the park. A platform for educational events, with a multi-purpose amphitheatre, as well as a restaurant and pizzeria, café, meeting rooms, medical office and outdoor sports and relaxation area, CTPark Bucharest West has established itself as a real magnet for employee recruitment and retention”

“The BUW 20-21 building, with an important surface area exceeding 100,000 sqm, represents a first in the CTP Romania portfolio and for the Romanian market in general, being the first warehouse to obtain the BREEAM Outstanding certification and also confirming that we can set new records in terms of energy efficiency and innovation, being a building whose energy needs are fully covered by the photovoltaic panels we have installed on the roof“, added Ana Dumitrache.

In CTPark Bucharest West, concepts related to mobility (from motorway links to bike paths and sidewalks), biodiversity, energy efficiency, renewable sources (photovoltaic panels) are addressed throughout the park.

Green features for BUW 20-21

The BUW 20-21 building benefits from electric car chargers and is surrounded by mature trees, shrubs, bird and invertebrate houses and other features that support biodiversity, and rainwater, collected in the retention pond, is reused for toilet water and irrigation. In the selection of building materials, priority has been given to environmentally friendly products with EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) certification.

The building consumes 46% less energy than the national reference building. The photovoltaic panel system installed on the roof of the BUW 20-21 building provides all the electricity required, reducing the operational carbon footprint by 97%.

All office spaces benefit from natural light, which increases productivity and employee well-being.

Outside, 200 trees have been planted, and birdhouses and insect hotels complete the strategy of sustaining biodiversity around all the CTP buildings.

Adrian Pop, Manager ADP Green Building, said:

“Our collaboration with CTP is characterised by impact through scale, both because of the very large building footprints and the number of projects. We strive to improve each project individually, but the real progress can be felt over time, when we see how the CTP standard is getting better and better, reaching projects that reach the highest level of BREEAM certification, Outstanding, as is the case of the CTPark Bucharest West BUW 20-21 building.”

The industrial sector has been in the spotlight in recent years, both because of the impressive way in which the sector has developed, but also because legislative changes have imposed new rules on the sustainability of industrial buildings. Of the 422 BREEAM-certified buildings in Romania, 107 are part of CTP’s portfolio, i.e. more than 25%, confirming the company’s commitment to sustainability.

CTP Romania uses the BREEAM New Construction standard for all new buildings it develops. Of these, the Clubhaus multi-purpose building and the BUW 20-21 warehouse have been awarded BREEAM Outstanding certification.
