UPM Biofore House, the headquarters of UPM located in the Helsinki city center, achieved PLATINUM level LEED EB v4 certification being the first in Finland and third in Europe. Among other things, enabling factors for the great result were the central location, energy efficiency and satisfied users of the building. In addition, the LEED certification previously achieved for building design and construction phase created a strong foundation for the existing building PLATINUM level, especially when using the most demanding LEED version available.
The certification consulted by GBP was achieved in the end of 2018. As a part of the project, an energy audit was also conducted by GBP.
