America House is now the first office building in Romania to be awarded the Gold ActiveScore Certification based on its current travel facilities for cyclists and scooters users.



ActiveScore is the world’s leading system for assessing and certifying buildings travel friendliness by using clear and scientific methodologies established by experts from the cycling and travel industry and urban planners with the aim to make buildings betters for cyclists and as a result, better for a greener world.

The rating parameters include the number and looks and feels of bikes racks, security measures, changing rooms, number of lockers and showers dedicated for bikers and services on offer for bikers such as bike repair station, arrangement with bikes repair shops and laundry services.

We want to encourage the use of alternative forms of transport, which has many benefits for the occupants of the building, for their health and wellbeing, as well as for the environment. Obtaining the Gold ActiveScore Certification is a great achievement for us, after achieving BREEAM in use Outstanding certification at the beginning of the year. We will continue this path setting the market standards in Romania for promoting healthier lifestyle for office tenants, reducing emissions, and creating greener real estate projects, commented David Hay, founder, and CEO of ADD Value Management SRL.
