A head office acting as a role model
For protecting the environment and creating a pleasant atmosphere: REMONDIS’ head office in Poland is a low-emission building thanks to its modern insulation system
REMONDIS’ head office team in Poland moves into a passive house in Warsaw
Following two decades of uninterrupted growth, REMONDIS Poland has built itself a new head office. This state-of-the-art office complex corresponds with the passive house standards and clearly demonstrates the company values. For, ecological and economic sustainability are the basis of REMONDIS’ success in Poland, too.
Polish citizens can now find a well-functioning water and recycling economy where before, just after the collapse of the Iron Curtain, there used to be obvious environmental problems. Since its entry into the market in 1992, REMONDIS has become one of the leading companies in Poland in both these sectors. Whether it be in large cities like Krakow, Poznan and Stettin or in numerous rural districts: in many cases, it is the public private partnerships that are partly owned by the Selm-based family-run business which ensure progress is being made.
REMONDIS and REMONDIS Aqua currently have 35 locations for serving local inhabitants, local authorities and companies in this Central European industrial nation. And success needs space. And so the new head office was built in Warsaw within a period of just eleven months. With a total office space of 2,000 square metres, the building has room for 100 modern workplaces. The construction costs amounting to 2.8 million euros are an investment that is impressive both from a business point of view and from the point of view of the climate and environment as the building corresponds with the passive house standards making it a role model for others.
The heart of the new building is its special form of insulation. The system makes air conditioning and standard heating equipment unnecessary. Instead, this sustainable technology creates a pleasant atmosphere in the rooms and the indoor temperature remains at practically the same level throughout the year. When the temperature drops outside, the heating system that has been installed, for example, provides warmth via a neighbouring combined heat and power station. In contrast, a central ventilation system cools the building down during the warm summer months and the heat generated as a result of this process is recovered.
More than 3.5 million people in Poland benefit from REMONDIS’ progressive solutions in the water and environmental service sector.
