Futureal Group has received the WELL Building Platinum Precertification for Advance Tower, Corvin Technology & Science Park, and Budapest One Business Park, making it the first property developer in Europe to receive this certification for three of this projects at the same time.
The International Well Building Institute (IWBI) has a system that examines buildings’ impact on human body, health and wellbeing, rating them based on seven categories: air, comfort, fitness, healthy nourishments, mental freshness, natural light, and water. These rates help creating office buildings that have a beneficial impact on employees’ health, well-being, and comfort, together with the environmental protection.
Worldwide, there are 34 WELL Precertified office buildings, with Futureal being the first in Europe to own three of them. Advance Tower is located at the Vaci street office corridor, the Budapest One Business Park next to Etele square and Kelenfold railway station, and Corvin Technology & Science Park on Corvin Promenade.
“Futureal Group has been committed to developing all of its future office buildings according to WELL Building standards, since the health of the employees working in the building must be a key priority during planning,” said Tibor Tatár, CEO, Futureal. “WELL Building Standard together with LEED and BREEAM certifications can form a complex system that leads to creating buildings that meet the highest sustainability requirements.”
Currently, there are 9 European WELL Precertified office projects including 4 Polish, 1 French, 1 Swedish and Futureal Group’s 3 Hungarian office buildings. The list also contains 20 Chinese, 4 Australian and 1 Canadian Precertified office projects.
