Bringing sustainability to the fore of Philippine workspaces

The LEED Silver-Certified 1 Proscenium is Rockwell Workspaces’ latest office tower.

Sustainability has transcended trends and has become somewhat of an art form in itself. In business, it has now been refined to qualify as a point of sophistication, with good reason. Implementing sustainable practices into an operation requires both technological innovation and their creative application.

Much more than that, sustainability is also an embodiment of modern values, where short-term gains are foresworn for the benefit of the future generations. The significance is further heightened in the wake of current global crises.

In the words of the United Nations (UN) Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs Liu Zhenmin in their 2022 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) report, “The world is facing a confluence of crises that threaten the very survival of humanity. All of these crises — and ways to prevent and navigate them — are addressed holistically in the SDGs.”

Sustainable Development Goal 11 focuses on building sustainable cities and communities, as more than half the world’s population live in cities today. By 2050, it is predicted that seven out of 10 people will likely live in urban areas.

Well-appointed spaces allow for the finest workstyle.

“Cities are drivers of economic growth and contribute more than 80% of global GDP. However, they also account for more than 70% of global greenhouse gas emissions. If well-planned and managed, urban development can be sustainable and can generate inclusive prosperity,” the UN report writes.

In property development, the development and refinement of sustainable or green buildings have been the foundation of rating and performance measurement systems like the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.

Ultimately, the goal is to create the best buildings possible, with consideration to all the necessary elements in the grander context of the modern era. LEED provides a framework for healthy, efficient, carbon and cost-saving green buildings, and LEED-certified buildings are globally recognized as symbols of sustainability achievement and leadership.

LEED-certified buildings save money, improve efficiency, lower carbon emissions and create healthier places for people. They are a critical part of addressing climate change and meeting ESG goals, enhancing resilience, and supporting more equitable communities.

Rockwell Land, as a leading premium property developer in the Philippines, strives to embody such qualities in its portfolio. In fact, the company is raising the bar of sophistication in Rockwell Center with the launch of the Proscenium at Rockwell.

1 Proscenium proves to be energy efficient with floor to ceiling and operable windows that allow natural light and airflow.

The Proscenium at Rockwell stands as a symbol of modern values in property developer, a holistic community in Makati consisting of five residential towers with a sprawling amenity deck designed by world-renowned Uruguayan architect, Carlos Ott. In this enclave where all needs are within reach is Rockwell Workspaces’ newest office tower, 1 Proscenium.

As a LEED Silver-Certified building, 1 Proscenium builds on the luxury experience created by the mixed-use complex, offering 214 square meters (sq. m.) to 640 sq. m. of office spaces, equipped with the latest Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) air-conditioning system and is built with operable windows for greater air circulation. With 21 floors and floor-to-ceiling windows, the office spaces feature plentiful natural sunlight to its tenants while providing a distinct exclusive view of the Rockwell community within Makati.

Aiming to provide the best office spaces for the finest professionals and discerning executives, 1 Proscenium is an integral part of the Proscenium masterplan. The balance of conduciveness, thoughtful office functionalities, and the unique touch of Rockwell’s distinct lifestyle is what makes it the ultimate workstyle experience.

Rockwell Workspaces first ventured into creating premium office spaces through its pioneer project, Rockwell Business Center Ortigas in Pasig.

Rockwell Business Center Sheridan in Mandaluyong and Santolan Town Plaza in San Juan were soon launched afterwards.

Creating a new work world as people return to the office

Written by: Ching M. Alano

Rise and shine! Time to drag yourself out of bed and get ready for work. Yes, work at the office and not at home, which served as your instant office during the pandemic. With the COVID-19 restrictions easing up as more people are now fully vaccinated, the country’s workforce is transitioning from working from home to going back to work. To get the economy back on track, business establishments are reopening and companies are trying to bring their employees back to the workplace.

But not all of us are all that keen to go back to the office.

Indeed, people have settled down to a daily routine around their work-from-home setup and found comfort in it. So, what would it take for employers to encourage employees to come to work? With businesses starting to surge back, how can companies make returning to the office work?

Providing a safe, pleasant and comfortable work environment is an important factor that can help employees work more efficiently and happily. Rockwell Workspaces seeks to answer the call by providing safe and modern office spaces that redefine what one would expect from the workplace.

Your safe office haven, 1 Proscenium, is ideally located on Estrella Street, Rockwell Center, close to Makati’s Central Business District.

Future-proofed office space

Picture a 3.6-hectare premier mixed-use development in a self-sustaining community with world-class office spaces designed for the finest professionals and executives in search of the perfect balance of innovation and sophistication, on the one hand, and convenience, productivity, and safety on the other.

Amid this thriving Proscenium community rises 1 Proscenium, developed by Rockwell Land which first ventured into creating premium office spaces conducive for tenants to embrace the distinct Rockwell workstyle.

Reimagine the new normal. Open spaces you can enjoy during breaks and in between work.

An added draw for 1 Proscenium is that it’s a LEED Silver (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)-certified building offering 117 to 640 sq.m. of flexible office spaces suited to one’s business needs.

With a total of 19 prime office floors, 1 Proscenium is future-proofed beyond the pandemic.

Being a green building, it uses energy-efficient LED lights and low-consumption water fixtures. Equipped with the latest VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) air-conditioning system, you’ll never have to feel cooped up in an office building, in view of the pandemic, because there are operable windows that can be opened not only to allow natural air to come in but also to save on energy consumption. Moreover, providing natural lighting and optimizing air quality can only redound to a healthier, happier, more productive workforce.

To name a few, 1 Proscenium is already set to become home to workspaces of architectural and design firms, engineering and service companies, and law offices.

Work safety & productivity

The spacious and bright office spaces provide both comfort and security. Proscenium workspaces  are equipped with heightened safety protocols, adopting the latest technologies, to ensure tenants of work safety and productivity. For added security and safety, there’s RFID access in elevators as well as CCTV cameras, 100-percent backup power, and a centralized fire detection and alarm system. 1 Proscenium is the first Rockwell Center project to have an e-vehicle charging station.

Set in an exclusive community, 1 Proscenium enjoys both the luxury of privacy and the convenience of nearby retail areas at the Power Plant Mall. From shopping to dining and recreational destinations, everything is just a strolling distance away.

The tower offers spacious office units for sale and for lease.

No sweat getting around this self-contained community as it’s also bike- and pedestrian-friendly. It’s likewise accessible via different modes of transportation, such as buses, jeepneys, vans, and MRT.

This vibrant neighborhood is also accessible to the business district of Taguig. And it will afford more accessibility with the Pantaleon bridge that connects Makati City to Mandaluyong.

Surely, you’ll look forward to a  day at the office if you work in an exciting place like this.
