IQ Ostrava Achieves BREEAM Excellent




CTP is proud to announce that IQ Ostrava has been certified BREEAM Excellent in the category BREEAM 2009 Europe Commercial: Offices (Fully Fitted).

IQ Ostrava was designed and built to very strict requirements, with materials and interior installations chosen on the basis of a lifecycle analysis. Building technologies include rain recycling systems, sanitary facility water control, and a comprehensive building management system that monitors overall energy and water use.

The development also scored high in the health and well-being category. Contributing factors include IQ Ostrava’s connection to local transport and biking paths, the provision of bicycles, onsite employee showers and preferred parking to support car-pooling efforts. Also highly noted are the inclusion of local trees and plants in the landscaped site plan.

IQ Ostrava's design is based on the highly successful IQ Buildings at Spielberk Office Centre in Brno. Last year, Tower I at Spielberk was certified BREEAM Outstanding.

CTP would like to thank our partners EC Harris, who assisted in the BREEAM assessment process, as well as to all our construction and management partners who worked to achieve this goal.
