On December 3, 2019, Galeria Chełm – the first shopping center in Chełm, a joint venture of Acteeum and Equilis - was awarded the BREEAM Design Stage – VERY GOOD certificate. This prestigious certificate confirms the effectiveness of the project investors' efforts to meet the highest ecological standards in the design and development of the Chełm shopping center, which is scheduled to open in Q1 next year.
As a result of a meticulous assessment of the Galeria Chełm development, experts from BRE Global, issuers of BREEAM certificates, gave Chełm project a noble VERY GOOD grade, awarding its Design Stage certificate. The BREEAM certification process has especially emphasized those features of Galeria Chełm focusing on energy, water, utilities and waste use optimization, confirming the far-reaching ecological efforts of the Chełm facility.
