AFI Europe Romania has secured the LEED Platinum precertification for AFI Tech Park 2, the second phase of the AFI Tech Park office development located in Bucharest. The developer worked with Colliers on the certification process.

The precertification was awarded for the implementation of measures linked to sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency and materials selection. Around 70% of the building’s electricity consumption will be powered by renewable sources in the first two years. Furthermore, AFI Tech Park 2 will consume 35% less energy and 50% less potable water compared to a regular building.

“AFI Europe is the largest developer in Romania of certified office buildings and shopping centres under the LEED Core and Shell rating system, with more than 170,000 sqm of certified spaces,” said arch. Tamara Dogariu, Senior Sustainability Consultant in Colliers' Green & Healthy Buildings Certifications division, the LEED AP of this project.

Emma Toma, Head of Office Division – AFI Europe Romania, added that the development is making investments in maintaining the operational costs for all tenants across the portfolio of buildings.
