During the designing process, the developer have kept in mind green and sustainable solutions guide for tenants such as office green design and priority parking for electric cars. Also, Skanska have focused on the preferred usage of local and recycled materials, as well as on creating vegetated roofs with terraces to provide more pleasant milieu for our prospective tenants. Such solutions not only minimise the building’s impact on the environment, but at the same time reduce operating costs, which translates into lower bills for water and electricity. Skanska has also thought about the working comfort of future building’s users – Nordic Light has been designed in a way that all the space for office work would have access to daylight and outside views, what has a huge meaning for employees’ effectiveness.

With the design of the building, our aim was to create a workplace where people love to spend their time” – said Zoltan Linczmayer Managing Director of Skanska Property Hungary.
