The first eco-friendly office of Sberbank of Russia
Design studio of Elena Krylova implemented design project the first eco-friendly office of Sberbank of Russia in St. Petersburg. As a result, he became a pioneer in the field of environmental certification system BREEAM, received an assessment «Gold».
Executive office meets all the official eco-standards not only in decoration but also functional. The basis of the VIP-zone of the Savings Bank in St. Petersburg, went to the company's values: leadership, team approach, customer focus and corporate social responsibility.
Business challengeCreate a modern, not function, the innovative office in eco-style. Designers been deeply explored the development of eco-friendly interiors, which is not limited to the use of natural materials in the decoration and the introduction of energy saving technologies.
Design IdeaThe idea of interior design VIP-area, according to the concept designers, interior represents the four elements: air, fire, water and earth. All this combined in a laconic interior of the premises and creates a sense of safety and comfort.
Designers also provided in the interior of the application of innovative eco-materials: salt and phyto-wall adsorbent surface. All furniture and accessories - the latest news office style of the leading European brands.
The interior of the VIP-zone of the Savings Bank takes into account all the requirements for the preservation of the environment: the control of light, water and temperature conditions, introduction of energy- and water-saving, separate waste collection, correct waste management, use of local building materials and natural materials, finishes, and much more .
For office lighting system is implemented on the energy-efficient LED and compact fluorescent lamps, and at the same time controlled zonal using occupancy sensors.
Cost-effective use of water is achieved through the installation of plumbing, low water consumption and the use of water-saving nozzles to taps on. All bathrooms are also equipped with a system to prevent leaks through solenoid valves that regulate the flow of water in all sanitary devices and automatically controlled automatically by a signal from the infrared sensors.
Design and manufacture of wood products (furniture, doors, some wall coverings) involved specialists of the Russian division of the company Dula-Werke Dustmann & Co. GmbH (Germany).
Part of the production was made at the company's factory in Pskov, where the material is used FSC-certified wood. The quality of indoor air is provided by the placement of the air intake at a safe distance from the exhaust pipes and sources of external contamination. Number of fresh air for the air exchange meet the standards of GOST R EN 13779 thanks to the installation of efficient air handling units with specific efficiency index (SFP), which meets the engineering systems of the UK non-residential buildings: it is important for the certification of BREEAM.
The project facilities were also provided compliance with BREEAM acoustics. All work on the office equipment have been done in three months - from September to December 2014. For this project were not made calculations of savings due to the use of energy-efficient and resource-saving technologies for BREEAM.
However, there is a global statistic that shows that for every 2% of additional capital investments in energy-efficient solutions ekoustoychivye can get a tenfold cost savings over a 20-year life cycle. In addition, the certificate BREEAM allows Sberbank to realize significant image effect - especially if the experience of eco-certification will be distributed to other departments and offices of the bank, not only in St. Petersburg.
