Citibank, R&D center, Tel Aviv
The project includes two office floors out of all the floors available in Migdal Atidim. The project was required to meet global LEED Citibank office standards, within a very tight schedule: office occupancy was set for four months from the beginning of the planning process.
The collaboration of WAWA with the international real estate company COLLIERS has produced an impressive result of the project being certified by the highest LEED standard – LEED CI Platinum.
Shekels of Savings in construction costs
Location: 3-4 floors Atidim Tower, Kiryat Atidim, Tel Aviv
Architect: Dunsky Architects
WAWA operations: LEED CI Platinum certification for interior office design
Building category: office building.
The project is required to meet a particularly tight schedule for office occupancy within four months including planning, permits, and execution. The green building planning process requires integrative work with the team of advisors from the beginning of the plan, with no possibility for any type of scheduling delay.
The client’s initial definition was to achieve the LEED GOLD rating. Our goal was to surpass the projected level within the same scheduled period. Collaboration with the international real estate company COLLIERS produced an impressive result with the project’s certification reaching the highest LEED rating, LEED CI Platinum, and with significant savings on operation costs.
