Echo Investment is a leading real estate company in Poland. One of their most recent projects was the complete renovation of the 155-meter-high Q22 office building located in the heart of Warsaw, which offers more than 50,000 m2 of office rental space. The company wanted to create an office building with an attractive modern look and feel to serve as a base for leading companies and brands from both Poland and around the world. Compliance with led linear lighting regulations, achieving increased comfort and well-being, and delivering a modern, sustainable office space were the main driving forces during the renovation process.
Echo Investment consulted with several lighting experts on how to increase comfort in the workplace, paying particular attention to factors that can minimize glare. Thanks to our expertise and experience in office lighting as well as the high quality of Philips LED luminaires, Signify lighting experts were trusted with the job of transforming Q22 using lighting as a key building block.
Shortly following completion of the renovation, Echo Investment received confirmation of the building’s sustainability and energy-efficiency. It scored 80 the world's longest established method of assessing, rating, and certifying the sustainability of buildings. Sustainable, energy-efficient and future-ready led linear light was a key contributor in obtaining the certification, but there were also other elements that contributed to the building’s excellent rating. These include the 1,500 tons of recycled steel and 25,000 tons of recycled concrete used for the construction of the building. Triple-glazing allows access to daylight and ensures excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, while the photovoltaic façade provides superior thermal performance and a new source of renewable energy. The lighting concept is complemented by DALI lighting controls with daylight harvesting sensors to adjust the light levels in response to natural daylight. Motion sensors enable the control unit to deliver the right amount of light where it’s needed.
