TELUS Tower stands out as one of the innovative buildings in the center of Sofia by its bold design based on sustainability characteristics, being one of the few office buildings certified by the BREEAM 2013.
To achieve the BREEAM certification the project team evaluated and demonstrate the level of sustainability of the property based on credits obtained within approximately 70 different issues.
It has been developed a set of sustainability measures (thermally insulated facade, contemporary glazing, efficient HVAC system, BMS etc.), to ensure reducing operational costs, the environmental management of the building and the comfort of their occupants.
