‘Give light and people will fins the way’ Ella Bakes
Provide illumination guidelines to minimize disruption to the body’s circadian system, enhance productivity and provide appropriate visual acuity. Require specialized lighting systems designed to increase alertness, enhance occupant experience and promote sleep.
Our dedicated systems enhancing the light in your office
- Lighting on common areas (garages, staircases, halls) is controlled by BMS and motion detectors. This solution automatically switches off lighting on unused areas.
- On the tenant areas we design lighting automatic switch-off, which happens after working hours.
- Using LED Lighting on common areas reduces power installed for lighting by around 50%. It also reduces lighting energy consumption by 50%
- LED lamps should work up to 30000 hours (10-15 years) without any maintenance
People say you can't live without love, but I think oxygen is more important.
More air for employees 30% - 40m3/h per person
A chilled beam is a type of convection HVAC system designed to heat or cool large buildings. Pipes of water are passed through a "beam" (a heat exchanger) either integrated into standard suspended ceiling systems or suspended a short distance from the ceiling of a room.
- No draught due to lower air speed and higher supplied air temperature
- Replacing the fans means removing the noise (lowered to 28 dB(A)) and no movable parts - no risk of malfunction, less maintenance needed.
description - brak mat.
- Quicker temperature change response. For densely occupied areas it might be a better solution.
- Quick temperature change response.
- Draught risk.
- Noise risk (>40 dB(A))
- Maintenance needed due to fan presence.
- Condensate removal system required.
Adiabatic cooling and humidification
Humidification system is necessary to ensure proper comfort parameters in the winter time.
Application of adiabatic humidification allows to use district heating as heat source instead of electricity, which is cheaper and requires less primary energy use – this results in cost savings and CO2 emission reduction.

Certificates issued by external parties
Environmental management system ISO 14001 is the most important environmental management system. It ensures that we work in an environmentally responsible way and that we continually improve. In 2000, Skanska became the first global construction company to obtain ISO 14001 certification.
LEED – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. This is voluntary system for measuring sustainability that was introduced by the US Green Building Council. LEED uses a lifecycle perspective to evaluate how a building handles the most important environmental parameters: energy savings, water efficiency, improved indoor environment, site location and responsible use of materials.
BREEAM – Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method. This is a method of assessing a building’s environmental qualities based on selected criteria – it is the UK equivalent of LEED. BREEAM focuses on management, energy, water, land use and ecology, health and well-being, transport, materials, waste and pollution.
Well Building Standard
Well Building Standard addresses air, water, light, fitness, comfort and mind. It works in alignment with LEED. The Well Building Standard is a grounded in medical research that demonstrates the connection between the buildings where we spend more than 90 percent of our time and the health and wellness impacts on us as occupants.
Building Without Barriers
Building Without Barriers is Disability Access Certificate issued by Integracja Foundation that confirms that the building meets high architectural accessibility standards and is accessible to people with various disabilities.
Internal ways of measuring performance
Skanska Colour Palette
Skanska Colour Palette – in the strategic framework and communication tool for Green Business, that has been developed to measure and guide the company’s performance on this journey with destination Deep Green.Green FM - New Solution for Skanska High Energy Performance Buildings. Based on the measurements recorded by BMS, observations of the building usage and financial bills and feedback from FM company. Supports owner and FM to detect irregularities in the operation of the systems and the individual devices. Helps to optimize building operation and reduce energy consumption and operational costs.
