United Business Center 2 (UBC 2) in Timișoara was awarded a LEED Gold certification. UBC 2 adds up to 18,000 sqm leasable area and was opened in early 2017. The building is a part of the Openville Timișoara mixed-use project currently developed by Iulius and Atterbury Europe in the vicinity of Iulius Mall.
“UBC 2 became the first office building in Timișoara to be certified per the American LEED® standard. The criteria that earned the project very good scores were public transportation accessibility, water consumption efficiency within the building and energy efficiency,” said Anca Mitrea, Senior Associate with the department of green certifications at Colliers International, the real estate consulting company that provided the consulting services for the certification process. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system developed by USGBC is the most important program for buildings, homes and communities that are designed, built, maintained and operated for the purpose of improving their performance in terms of environmental and human health.
The companies that run their business in UBC 2 and enjoy these amenities are Ness Software Engineering Services, Veoneer, ACI Worldwide, Azets Insight, Convergys, PwC Romania, Bitdefender, the branches of CEC Bank and ProCredit Bank, as well as Regina Maria Polyclinic and the retailer dm drogerie markt.
