Skanska has begun construction of two eco-friendly building projects in Poland.

The company has started building the new Malta House office building in Poznan, a 15,700m2, five-storey structure being financed with an investment of €29m.

Located in Poznan city centre, the new building will have direct access by public transportation to Warsaw and Katowice, and tenants will also be located close to a shopping mall.

The building, Skanska’s first office project in Poznan, will offer 275 parking spaces to its tenants.

The project has already obtained LEED Platinum pre-certification due to its planned innovative green features for maximising energy efficiency, light control systems and efficient use of water.

Malta House will also feature a green roof offering a view over the Malta Lake.

Construction is scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2013.

In another major project in Poland, Skanska has commenced construction of building B in the Green Corner office complex in Warsaw.

The 13,000m2 facility will be built with an investment of €30m as part of the second phase of Green Corner.

Located at Chlodna street in Warsaw, the Green Corner office complex consists of two buildings with a total area of 27,000m2.

The seven-storey complex, to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2012, will offer good access to public transportation, including the new line of the Warsaw metro system, said Skanska.

The Green Corner office project is LEED Platinum pre-certified and will incorporate green features such as an energy-efficient lighting system and the use of greywater.
