S7 Office Buildings (I, II stages)

Location: Vilnius, Lithuania
Completion: 2017
Main contractor: UAB Mitnija
Developer: UAB M.M.M. projektai
Architect: UAB Archinova

A unique new business area is being developed in Vilnius Saltoniškių st. 7, next to the business complex Baltic Hearts. KG Constructions was trusted with the facades for the first and second buildings in this area. The first stage has been completed in 2017 and Danske Bank Global Services Centre has opened its doors. The second stage has already begun and the main office of Telia will be located here. Employees will move to new premises in 2019. In total, four buildings are planned to be constructed at this location.

Lithuanian and Danish architects, who collaborated to design this complex, prioritised nature. Therefore, a lot of attention is paid to sunlight – it is aimed to ensure that every workplace would receive as much natural light as possible. The sunlight will also be harnessed to provide electricity for the building: photoelements placed on the roofs will produce at least one tenth of the electricity required.

These buildings will be one of the few A energy efficiency class buildings in Vilnius. The project developers aim to be granted with BREEAM New Construction Excellence certificate, which would attest the sustainability of the buildings. Currently, no building in Lithuania has been granted this certificate.

UPDATE:

The first S7 building has already received the BREEAM New Construction Excellent certificate. This is the 1st building in Lithuania and the 2nd in the Baltic States to achieve such rating. It shows that the building meets international sustainability requirements.
