In a market with a potential between EUR 3 and 5 billion per year, the energy efficiency of existing office buildings can bring significant cost savings to their tenants. Fadi Rida, CEO of Global Technical Group, which offers innovative solutions in the field, says the pressure of European standards in the field is becoming increasingly felt in Romania, but the lack of skilled and experienced staff is still causing problems.
Most office buildings currently built are certified with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and BREEAM Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) standards. Over the past 3-4 years, investor interest in organic certification schemes has increased. Our clients have begun a process of sustainable certification of the buildings they own.
