The first stage of real estate development company M.M.M. Projektai’s S7 business center on Saltoniškių street in the Žvėrynas neighborhood of Vilnius has been awarded the BREEAM New Construction Excellent certificate. This is the first award of its kind in Lithuania and the second in the Baltic countries. Since early this year, the 15,000 sq. m. building, constructed by Mitnija in 21 months, has housed the Danske Bank Global Services Center.
The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is an international standard for sustainable buildings. The procedure for evaluating a building aiming to receive a BREEAM certificate consists of two stages – the first stage, when the design solutions of the building are evaluated; and the second stage after the construction is completed, when an audit is performed and the actual certificate is issued.
