Business campus B01 LvivTech.City has successfully passed LEED certification and received a high rating – LEED Gold
The project is the first building of the future LvivTech.City, located at 48 Stryiska Street in Lviv. The 4.8-hectare territory of the former industrial zone will be revitalized with new modern infrastructure: offices and coworking spaces, business campuses, restaurants, sports grounds, gyms, residential development and green recreation areas.
Thanks to its convenient location 15 minutes from the city center, the availability of Stryiskyi Park nearby, and the developed external and internal infrastructure, the concept is implemented in a comfortable way: Live-Work-Study-Rest.
Business Campus B01 was assessed at the design stage, thereby confirming the compliance of design solutions with the requirements of the LEED standard, and upon completion of construction, including an assessment of the construction and commissioning process in accordance with the requirements of the ASHRAE family of standards.
The building was assessed by all categories provided by the LEED standard, including:
The use of water-efficient fittings installed in the building’s common areas has resulted in a reduction in water consumption of more than 50%. At the same time, energy efficiency solutions implemented in accordance with the LEED standard resulted in a 31% reduction in energy costs.
During construction, the volume of waste was reduced through on-site sorting, on-site reuse, collection and handover for recycling.
The building’s interior environment is characterized by high performance in terms of air quality and flow rates, as well as thermal comfort. Ventilation rates in occupied spaces were increased by 30% above the minimum rates required by the ASHRAE standard.
Consulting services and certification support were provided by MCL specialists. Due to the coordinated work of the UDP Project Developer and the Principal Contractor team, it was possible to implement such a significant project that brings together technology and innovation companies, R&D centers and accelerators that are actively developing and creating a cluster of innovations for the city’s development during wartime and despite the economic crisis in the country.
LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) is a globally recognized standard for green buildings. LEED certification saves energy costs, reduces carbon emissions, and creates healthier environments where people live, work, and learn. In the United States alone, buildings account for nearly 40% of CO2 emissions, and LEED-certified buildings have 34% lower CO2 emissions, consume 25% less energy and 11% less water, and divert more than 80 million tons of waste from landfills.
