Hillwood’s full portfolio of buildings with BREEAM certificates at Excellent level

Hillwood Poland’s 15 buildings have been certified BREEAM In Use at the Excellent level, completing the certification for the company’s entire portfolio. Obtaining the certificates was the result of cooperation with JWA, a consulting firm specializing in green solutions for commercial real estate.

Hillwood is a leading real estate developer and investor, specializing in providing logistics, warehouse, industrial, and dedicated e-commerce facilities. Globally, the company has developed more than 24 million sqm of warehouse space, including more than 2.8 million in Poland. Recently, 15 of the company’s facilities (14 warehouse halls and an office building), located in Warsaw, Wroclaw, Lodz, and Szczecin, among others, received BREEAM In Use certificates at the Excellent level. Certification for these facilities completed the company’s strategy of obtaining BREEAM Excellent certification for the entire portfolio of buildings constructed in Poland by Hillwood.

“We are extremely proud to certify all of our projects as BREEAM Excellent. It confirms our commitment to the highest standards of quality and care for the environment. This accreditation, which covers the entire Hillwood portfolio, provides customers with the assurance that our investments are benefiting the environment and generating economic savings, which is another step towards creating a sustainable future,” says Renata Michalczyk, Head of Asset and Property Management Poland, Hillwood.

The cooperation with JWA consisted of implementing recommended solutions – mainly related to optimizing water consumption and rainwater storage, as well as installing specialized metering equipment. In addition, the ecologist’s recommendations were implemented, which translated into an increase in biodiversity, and special areas were created for car-sharing services.

“The biggest challenge was to obtain certification for so many buildings simultaneously in a very short time,” says Sylwia Bieda, Sustainability Specialist & Junior Coordinator at JWA. “In just six months, we successfully conducted a number of audits at facilities located in different parts of the country, commissioned many additional studies, and coordinated client communications that involved multiple stakeholders. As a result, the process of obtaining all certifications went very smoothly and, most importantly, efficiently.”
