Visionary, a top office project in Prague-Holešovice, is the first building with WELLTM certification in the Czech Republic and Central Europe and the 24th building with this certification in the world. At the same time, Visionary is the greenest office building in the Central Europe region, which was awarded 95 LEED Platinum certification shortly after its completion last year.
WELL certification has been established over the past seven years on the basis of research and development by leading physicians, scientists and real estate professionals. It is based on tracking concrete results and combines best practices in design and building buildings with evidence-based scientific research . Visionary has won Gold for its seven air, water, light, nutrition, fitness, comfort, mind and innovation awards.
“Visionary has shown future developments in several ways. With the project we have introduced a new location that successfully establishes itself in the Prague office space market. The building received a high score (95) in LEED Platinum Core & Shell certification, making it the greenest building in the Czech Republic and Central Europe. In addition, Visionary also became the first WELLTM building in our region, ” says Alexandra Tomášková , Director of Skanska Property Czech Republic .
“We are proud that the cooperation in the Skanska Group on WELL certification confirms that sustainability and health is our priority. During the construction, we focused on the selection of materials that meet strict health requirements. The future of green construction lies in the close cooperation of all parties involved in the design and implementation of the project itself. We succeeded in this and we know that we will use our knowledge and experience on other construction projects, ” says Michal Jurka , President of Skanska Czech and Slovak Republic.
