A combination of striking design, high standard construction and efficient operation are some of the attributes of the project

Stela Hirata • 8/5/2022

Seven years after its construction, whoever passes through Rua Sansão Alves dos Santos, in the Berrini region of São Paulo, continues to be impressed by the unique structure of the Arquiteto Carlos Bratke building.

Its 28,000 m² area was designed by the renowned architect, who no wonder had his name stamped on the facade. The project is one of the references in architectural design in the city and all the details that differentiate the work bear the signatures of the builders Bratke Collet and Engeform.

High standard construction and excellent technical characteristics

Due to its high technical characteristics, good corporate image and LEED sustainability certification, the Arquiteto Carlos Bratke building won the A+ rating, and is part of the select group of the best buildings in São Paulo. 

Among the main features are:

• Slabs from 2,000 m²
• State-of-the-art power generators
• Elevators with smart call
• Attached Auditorium
• Good availability of parking spaces
• Bike locker and locker room for users

The building has a common area with landscaping that includes decompression, as well as a cafe on the ground floor. The excellent location, just one block from the Berrini station and the surroundings full of shops, restaurants, bank agencies and hotels are also some of the attractions.

Sustainability as a way to generate savings and assist occupants in their ESG goals

Engineer Flavio Martins, Managing Partner of Construtora Bratke Engenharia, says that the building has been committed to environmental issues since its inception, having LEED Core & Shell sustainable certification (construction) and also LEED O+M (operation and maintenance), in addition to INMETRO PBE Edifica seal: ''very few buildings in São Paulo have the INMETRO PBE Edifica high energy performance seal and the Architect Carlos Bratke building has this certification, in addition to the LEED Core & Shell and O+M certifications''.

Everything was planned under the concept of rational use of resources to generate more savings and quality of life. From easy accessibility to thermo-acoustic insulation, from minimizing the environmental impact to the intelligent occupation of spaces, the Arquiteto Carlos Bratke Building incorporates the most current concepts of sustainability and productivity. The building set was designed in organic shapes surrounded by green glass to ensure maximum use of natural light. Supported on a reflecting pool, the development is surrounded by a unique landscaping, designed in 1,500 m² of green area.

For occupants, being in a certified building has numerous benefits. One of them is the savings generated by having an efficient operation in terms of water, energy and materials incorporated. These points seek to optimize the operation as a whole and represent savings for the condominium owners.

In addition, environmental certifications primarily address energy, water and waste management, which are used as indicators of commitment to positive environmental impact, which can help the occupant in their ESG strategies.

Cushman & Wakefield Property Management

The Arquiteto Carlos Bratke building has been managed by Cushman & Wakefield since its opening in 2015, having even held the Condominium Installation Assembly. Tiago Borges, Operations Manager, has followed the work since the beginning, and says that over the years, the partnership has been marked by a focus on optimization and best market practices, in line with the view of the trustee and investors.

''Designed and built with the best sustainability and energy efficiency practices, over the years the LEED certifications for design and construction, operation and maintenance and the Inmetro PBE Edifica seal were obtained in their maximum grades, ensuring that the building was not only built , but remains concerned with operating its resources and equipment in a rational, efficient and sustainable way,'' says the Operations Manager.
