South Center awarded by President Andrzej Duda in Accessibility Leader competition
One of the buildings in the South Center was ranked among the office buildings best adapted to the needs of the people with disabilities. Centrum Południe is a complex under construction on Powstańców Śląskich Street.
The nationwide Accessibility Leader competition, under the honorary patronage of Poland's president, has for the past seven years selected investments distinguished by their architectural accessibility. This year Skanska's Centrum Południe office building in Wroclaw joined the group of the best.
The goal of the competition is to draw attention to the problem of existing architectural barriers, as well as to promote positive solutions for the accessibility of objects and spaces for people with various disabilities.
When creating new workplaces, it is essential to create accessibility in offices for every employee, including those with special needs. This is how we build inclusive communities, integrate them and support diversity.

The South Center provides a number of improvements for people with limited mobility.
Skanska is also highlighting environmental aspects. The most interesting ones are: the Center is fully powered by electricity from wind farms andthe technology used allows for the reuse of greywater and rainwater, generating savings in water consumption of 58 percent.
