The subject of our actions are people and their environment. We create buildings that have a positive influence on the quality of life and work. We create a space that shapes the relations between people and nature. Our projects ideally blend into that which is unique and valuable in a given space and they perfectly harmonise with sustainable urban development.
The BREEAM certificate awarded to YAREAL’s projects is evidence of our consistent activity, persistent quest for optimum solutions, and the high quality of our projects. It confirms our responsible attitude focused on development with measures to save natural resources.
BREEAM constitutes a system for evaluating building quality and its influence on the residents and natural environment that is awarded by an independent organisation. The system defines a standard of best practices in terms of sustainable construction and covers, among others, such aspects as environmental protection and ecology, user comfort and safety, utility and economy. The BREEAM evaluation methodology assumes an in-depth analysis of all project parameters. Awarding a building or group of buildings with the BREEAM certificate guarantees that they have been designed and constructed in line with the best standards and that they stand out in terms of high quality design and comfortable use.
The building at Sienna 65 features a number of solutions intended to improve the comfort of the residents and ensure that the project has a positive influence on the environment and the surroundings. These solutions concern comfort inside the building, elements of friendly surroundings, the location and a positive influence on the local community.
CREATED FOR YOUR COMFORT
- the building is equipped with the SmartHome system by Fibaro. It is an intelligent building-automation system that controls, manages and monitors the devices in the building. Its use ensures the control and efficient use of electrical energy.
- the building will also offer the residents a private green space on the roof. The green terrace and the flowerpots on the apartments' balconies encourage the development of a green enclave in the city centre. Additionally, the green roof prevents the building from heating up, which has a positive effect on the urban space. Excessive heating of buildings in the city (the so-called urban heat island effect) negatively impacts the urban environment, making the local climate drier, warmer and windless, which may lead to a deterioration in air quality.
- the interiors of the common areas are also well thought out, featuring elements of wood and stone – the natural materials offer a breather from the urban hustle and bustle. The staircase will be naturally lit and the halls on the individual floors will have LED lighting.
- the area and the building will be accessible to the visually impaired. The common areas will have labels and a system of signs in Braille. Additionally, there will be amenities for persons with special requirements, such as the disabled, seniors, or parents with children.
- in order to protect the building against damage, the elements that are subject to intensive use will be protected with door stops, skirting boards, protective and shock-absorbing materials and other measures appropriate for the location, which will reduce damage and therefore the costs of renovations and waste.
COST-EFFECTIVNESS DAY BY DAY
- the garage is equipped with an electrical system that permits the installation of sockets for charging electric cars. Any resident wishing to take advantage of this amenity will be able to connect the charger to a power sub-meter.
- the building will be connected to the municipal heating system, which is one of the most environmentally friendly and low-emission solutions – the system implemented by the Warsaw heat and power plants uses the heat created in the process of producing electrical energy for heating purposes.
FOR YOU AND THE ENVIRONMENT
- the building has been designed on the basis of the conclusions of a computer analysis concerning energy performance, the thermal comfort of the residents and access to daylight in individual rooms. These conclusions have allowed the designers to choose the optimum solutions that ensure maximum comfort of the residents, such as the right types of glass, thermal insulation, more access to daylight and improved interior air quality thanks to the use of mechanical ventilation. The analysis was carried out by an energy performance expert.
- the building will have an area for storing separated refuse and containers for selective waste collection. This will encourage an ecological approach to waste management.
- the ecological value and the biodiversity of the area has been improved by designing boxes for butterflies, ladybirds and birds, as well as greenery that is particularly well matched to the local fauna, based on native species, resilient to climate and weather changes and that does not require intensive watering. A large number of plants that increase biodiversity complies with the local biodiversity development strategy. An ecologist has been consulted regarding the greenery design.
- the area will be lit with LEDs, which reduces energy consumption.
- the building will also have amenities for bikers, including a separate room for keeping bikes.
- the building will be surrounded by green areas, increasing the attractiveness of the project in terms of ecology and recreation.
TO LIVE BETTER – RESPONSIBLY
- the general contractor has to meet very strict environmental requirements. During the construction process, recyclable waste will be collected separately, water and power will be used efficiently and the employees will have good sanitary conditions (showers, changing rooms, a cafeteria and health and safety measures). The local community is being kept informed about the progress of the construction; this policy will be continued. We are also planning to take a number of actions to minimise any inconvenience for people living nearby caused by the construction. The implementation of these actions will be monitored.
* The „Sienna 65” project was registered with BRE, an entity granting the BREEAM certificate. The final certificate is awarded upon completion of the project.
Information on the certification process is available in the investor’s office.
