Currently, all of One United Properties’ residential building projects are being constructed to meet or exceed the Romania Green Building Council’s challenging “Green Homes” certification requirements for environmental performance. The leadership exhibited by One United Properties has been and will be a powerful force in encouraging a positive direction of the environmental performance for the local construction and real estate industries.”
Beatrice Dumitrașcu, Sales Manager One United Properties:
“We are glad to announce that One United Properties is the only residential complex in Bucharest with "Green Homes" certification, Excellence level. It’s an honour for us, but also a confirmation of our ongoing concern for efficient, healthy, sustainable buildings. A “green home” offers a lot of benefits ranging from cuts to monthly bills through significant energy and water savings, a healthy living environment through minimal exposure to toxic materials with an implicit reduction of disease risk, a more advantageous mortgage than the standard one and the possibility of obtaining a higher resale price. We want to further promote these values through all the projects we are developing and at the same time encourage a good practice model at national level.”
