Globalworth Square is a very ambitious project, designed as a business hub focused on sustainability, innovation, digitalization, and efficiency. Located in the northern part of Bucharest, Globalworth Square is a class A office building totalling 29,000 sqm leasable area distributed over 3 underground levels, Ground Floor and 15 upper floors plus 1 tech level, with a generous typical floorplan of 2,130 sq.m.
With this project, located in the middle of the Globalworth District, the largest business community in Bucharest, the landlord is creating a new standard when it comes to responsiveness, well-being, sustainability, and reduced costs of occupancy. Since technology plays a central role in the office of the future, a trend accelerated by the pandemic, Globalworth is bringing the future closer with a series of unique innovations.
It is one of the few energy-producing buildings in Romania; an important part of the energy consumption is provided by the geothermal system under the slab foundation, capable of considerably reducing the cooling and heating costs, covering a percentage of 25% of the overall consumption of the building.
Furthermore, the systems of building benefit from additional free energy produced by the photovoltaic park that is situated on the roof of the building.
Another innovation is the implementation of the ice storage system, unique for a class A office building in Romania. The solution consists in the fact that, during the peak periods of the hot season (between 12:00 – 17:00), the main source of cooling is the use of the thermal agent stored in the ice storage room. The thermal agent is produced by a chiller at a temperature of minus 5 degrees at night, an hourly interval in which the cost of electricity is reduced.
Globalworth Square has an all-in-one BMS platform controlling all systems of the building including but not limited to: metering, HVAC, access control, fire detection, public address, lighting, CCTV etc, the Honeywell EBI. On top of it, Globalworth Square operates Honeywell Forge enterprise performance management software-as-a-service to further optimize operation of the systems and reduction of consumption through AI technology.
To increase safety, direct contact with the surfaces in Globalworth Square is limited by implementing touchless solutions with IR-sensors in all the sanity facilities, while the access to the building and office spaces are available through Blue-tooth and NFC technologies. In addition, maximum air quality is achieved as the air handling units are equipped with both in-built humidification and innovative air disinfection ensuring germ-free fresh air introduction at the optimum humidity.
Other important features: digital visitor registration system, interactive digital displays, LPR parking system and charging stations for electric cars.
Globalworth, the leading office investor in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and the leader of the Romanian office market, obtained in January 2022 a BREEAM Outstanding accreditation for Globalworth Square, with 99% scoring, placing the building on the 3rd place worldwide.The project received excellent recognition for Health and Wellbeing, Energy, Transport, Water, Materials, Land Use and Ecology, Pollution and Management, being the most technologically advanced office building in the Globalworth portfolio.
With the new tenant manuals for Square building, we are launching the program of improving the tenants’ experience across our portfolio. We are dedicating those new tools not only to office managers but to all our community members. This is an important step to grant our tenants the possibility of using the full potential of our buildings and make their everyday life easier.
