Contributing Toward Sustainable Development
Corso Court is designed to use 36 percent less energy than Czech standards and 30 percent less water than a typical newly constructed office building in the Czech Republic. The development provides healthy working environments, promotes a long useful lifespan through flexible design, and has contributed toward sustainable urban development by redeveloping a former-industrial brownfield site and providing a large public urban garden space. Corso Court also promotes urban biodiversity, reduces the heat island effect in Prague and encourages the use of more sustainable modes of transport. During construction, the team worked toward a good health and safety performance, diverted 97.5 percent of construction waste from landfill and benefitted the regional economy by hiring workers and contractors from the Prague area.
