Project Description

The Marshall Office is the government responsible for Malopolska region. When planning the new offices they took ‘sustainable building’ as the decisive issue in an architectural competition. The winning architect consortium elaborated a concept design with strong focus on energy saving and healthy indoor climate. For instance a tri-generation plant will provide heating and cooling and produce most of the electricity in the building. Horizone Studio is responsible for architectural design of the buildings A and B and land development plan while Maleccy Biuro Projektowe for architectural design of the Building C.

The Marshall Office decided to cooperate with Sweco Consulting because of its experience in BREEAM certification and its supportive way of working. To optimize sustainable solutions the design team was advised by a representative of the Polish Green Building Council.

The buildings will be constructed in 2016 and 2017 and a final BREEAM certificate will be obtained when the building is completed.
