At the event we met the founders and leaders of the WELL standard system to talk about further ideas and the introduction of the WELL system to the Hungarian market,” said Gábor Radványi, Chief Architect, Futureal. “Beside sustainability employees’ health are becoming a key factor. Therefore Futureal’s two additional projects, Advance Tower and Budapest One are also in the pre-certification process of the standard system,” added László Németh, deputy project director of Futureal.
