Nivy Tower: Flagship of HB Reavis’ modern real estate project”
Since 2019, Bratislava can boast the “Nivy Tower”, an outstanding structure in the heart of the business centre. With a total lettable area of around 32,000 m², the tower offers renowned companies such as Danone, GoHealth, XTB, Resco, Kühne+Nagel and CBRE’s Global Workplace Solutions department a first-class business address. The “Nivy Tower” is an integral part of the impressive “Nivy Zone”, which was fully developed by HB Reavis and covers an area of around 45,000 m².
The “Nivy Tower” features an advanced technological infrastructure that offers numerous innovative solutions. Thanks to a fibre-optic backbone with redundancy and high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity, visitors get a fast and reliable internet connection. In addition, the building’s thoughtful design allows for seamless integration of lifts, parking, visitor management and access control, supporting both physical and mobile badges.
By continuously optimising the building’s functionality and efficiency, HB Reavis strives to meet the needs of its users. State-of-the-art cybersecurity features are also being introduced. According to the SBC, the building could receive platinum certification in the future, provided some adjustments are made to the current implementation.
The SBC (Sustainable Building Certification) is an organisation that specialises in assessing buildings according to the added value they provide to users and their businesses. The tallest building in the European Union received the coveted “Gold” certification from the SBC, which means that it meets extremely high standards in the areas of well-being, sustainability, performance, innovation, health and safety. In addition, the certification also recognises the building’s smart and technical infrastructure.
The certification assessed various categories, with one standing out in particular: safety and security. The SBC (short for the certification body) was particularly positive about the high performance in this area. At the same time, first-class standards were also confirmed in the other categories – building use, building performance, building environment, user experience & collaboration, and connectivity & inclusive design.
