Over 21,000 sqm of office space located on 13 floors, terraces for tenants and a basketball court – this will be the second phase of the Centrum Południe office complex currently being developed by Skanska. Like the existing buildings, the new phase will apply for numerous certificates, including the WELL Core&Shell. 

Centrum Południe is a multi-stage investment that will ultimately offer 85,000 sqm of office space, as well as retail and service space. In August 2020, the first two buildings of the complex were commissioned, totaling 27,600 sqm. Now Skanska is starting work on the second phase of its largest project in Wroclaw.

The second phase of the complex should be completed by the fourth quarter of 2022 and will provide 21,500 sqm of space. The office building will have 15 above-ground floors – including two technical ones – and two underground floors with 200 parking spaces. Underground work started earlier, and construction is expected to reach level 0 in August this year. The building will apply for numerous certificates: LEED Core&Shell Platinum, WELL Core&Shell, Building without Barriers, and the newest one – WELL Health-Safety Rating. The latter is awarded to office spaces with the highest safety parameters, reducing the risk of disease transmission and enabling the creation of healthy and safe workplaces. 

According to the research carried out on behalf of Skanska, more than half of Poles would like to work from the office every day or at least 3-4 times a week. Additionally, 61 percent of respondents declare they feel safer in offices that have been awarded certificates – such as the WELL Health-Safety Rating.

The complex is 100% powered by electricity generated by wind farms. Recycled materials and those with low VOC emissions were used in the construction of the complex. In turn, the green areas around Centrum Południe are cultivated without the use of harmful pesticides and herbicides. In the second phase, the construction of green, anti-smog concrete pavements will also be continued.
