The Readers’ Choice Realty Awards – Globalworth Square Best Technology Driven Office Building award

We are honoured to have received the Best Technology Driven Office Building award at the “The Readers’ Choice Realty Awards” gala, powered by Business Review magazine, for Globalworth Square, our ambitious project, designed as a business hub focused on sustainability, innovation, cutting-edge technologies and efficiency. The development of PropTech represents a fundamental move towards broad-scale digitisation of buildings. We are happy to bring the future closer and we will continue to lead the global transformation of the real estate sector in Romania.

A premiere for Business Review’s Realty Forum, the Readers’ Choice Realty Awards took a step back from the usual “Editors’ choice” format and focused on the Vox Populi of the BR readership and social media community. By looking at the best-performing companies in the Romanian real estate sector through this lens, Business Review determined, according to the metrics of the news articles, stories, analyses, profiles, or interviews from the last 12 months, what are the most remarkable accomplishments in the industry.

With Globalworth Square, located in the middle of the Globalworth District, Globalworth is creating a new standard when it comes to responsiveness, well-being, sustainability, and reduced costs of occupancy. Globalworth Square obtained BREEAM Outstanding accreditation, with 99% scoring, placing the building on the 3rd place worldwide. 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. An important part of the energy consumption is provided by the photovoltaic roof and to increase safety, direct contact with the surfaces is limited by implementing touchless solutions with IR-sensors in all the sanity facilities, while the access to the building and office spaces is available through Bluetooth and NFC technologies.

Globalworth Square has an innovative health and safety feature, increasing the air filtration and UVC light disinfection for a hygienic office environment: a system that disinfects the air introduced in the office area as well as in the common spaces with the help of UV-C lamps installed on the inlet connections of the air-treatment stations. This system ensures efficient and effective reduction of microorganisms by up to 99%, even in very confined spaces, and it works against viruses such as Covid-19 and other pathogens. Another innovation is the building’s cooling system, consisting of a heat pump, R1234ze ecological freon chillers and a boot storage, designed to generate low energy consumption. The implementation of the ice storage system is unique for a class A office building in Romania.
