During the 4th -6th of October 2013, RoGBC participated at the National Real Estate Fair, with the goal of educating the visitors on what does a green building mean, bringing forwards examples of initiatives, furniture design and built constructions.

 ImageThus, within the RoGBC booth at TNI, we presented Green Mortgage – more attractive loans for the acquisition of green houses, together with EcoBiblioteca and the Câlnic School pilot projects. As examples of sustainable design, we invited Laboratorul de Arhitectură, ZEST Collective and Tubajera in order to set the outline of an environmentally friendly and attractive furniture. In order to raise the awareness of visitors, we offered them the list of the greenest buildings in Romania, including residential constructions, together with a Guide for Building Green Homes, informing them on what a sustainable building means and on its basic requirements.

 Thanks to the success of this year’s booth, Romania Green Building Council, in partnership with the National Real Estate Fair, will develop a Green Corner within the future editions of the Fair. More on this subject soon!

We are very pleased to inform you that the management team of the operating companies of Gardiner & Theobald CEE., a premier provider of construction consultancy services in Central and Eastern Europe, has completed a buyout of the companies from the parent company, Gardiner & Theobald LLP.

The new company, Sentient, will be owned exclusively by its management team to ensure continuity and business as usual. The company will continue to have close links with G&T with the intention of cooperating on opportunities as they arise.

We have been operating in CEE for almost 20 years and have established offices in Prague, Budapest, Warsaw, Bucharest, Bratislava and Zagreb. We are pleased to announce that we have already established new bases in Montenegro and East Africa to work with new and existing clients on some significant opportunities.

We are very excited about the change which will allow us to continue to provide client focused professional support exhibited prior to the acquisition in existing and new markets and sectors. We are now ideally placed, given our extensive experience and knowledge, to build on this structure, at a time when increased flexibility and fast on the ground decision-making is required to benefit our clients from the growing confidence in the region.
