LEED Firsts for Forest Offices Debrecen

Budapest, March 6, 2019 – Forest Offices in Debrecen Hungary is the first LEED Gold certified office in Hungary outside Budapest, and the first new office building in Hungary certified under LEED version 4 – LEED’s most stringent green building standard ever.  

The building with 22,000 sq m leasable space was handed over in the final quarter of 2018 and is the largest speculative office development in Debrecen, Hungary. Forest Offices was designed to meet and exceed the requirements of the rapidly expanding number of international investors in Debrecen.


The LEED certification of Forest Offices guarantees the project has been designed and built to minimize its environmental impact.  With the selection of a previously developed site integrated into an established neighborhood with excellent public transportation and bicycle access, the incorporation of green, open space around the building and rooftop gardens designed to minimize irrigation requirements, and a demonstrated commitment to reduce and recycle construction waste, Forest Offices Debrecen are doing everything possible to assure the health and well-being of future generations.

Perhaps most importantly, the LEED certification program for Forest Offices Debrecen placed a significant focus on features which will improve occupant productivity and well-being. Forest Offices Debrecen has full height windows to maximize natural light and assure all occupants have the highest quality views, while the air-handling systems provide an abundance of fresh air at all times and in all weather conditions.  

„Forest Offices Debrecen is a modern office building meeting all the requirements, located at the most beautiful area of the city, in the neighborhood of the city park (NagyerdÅ‘). With the new office building, we were able to provide the best conditions for companies looking for outstanding office quality in the region” – said László Papp, mayor of Debrecen.

Forest Offices Debrecen was designed by BORD Architectural Studio, and constructed by HUNÉP Ltd. The LEED certification process was handled by Colliers International Hungary.
