EveryMatrix swells environmentally friendly Bucharest base

EveryMatrix has stressed delight at the construction of fresh Bucharest-based offices, after first establishing a base within the Romanian capital 18 years ago.

The expansion, developed by Strabag Real Estate, will accommodate the igaming provider’s 350 employees on a surface of 7,500 square metres of office space.

Titled Arghezi 4, the building is located in the central point of the city and has started construction ahead of a projected delivery date that is set for next year.

Ebbe Groes, Group CEO of EveryMatrix, explained: “I’m delighted to announce the construction of our brand new office in collaboration with Strabag Real Estate. The new building is environmentally-friendly and will bring many exciting facilities to our employees. 

“We are one of Romania’s major players in software provision, attracting and retaining hundreds of highly skilled IT specialists over the years. 

“With this new building, we are consolidating our position in the tech market, and we are looking forward to continuing to employ talent here and expand our operations.”

The new hub to be developed by Strabag, which is said to rely on sustainable practices, will include an in-house gym, pool, exterior backyard garden, several green spaces, diner, coffee shop, retail services on the ground floor, and relaxation rooms on all floors.

Monica Barcutean, Area Manager of Strabag Real Estate Romania, noted: “We are proud to have developed a strong trustful business relationship with EveryMatrix that creates a remarkable synergy in this central city location and further enhances the neighbourhood. 

“We are looking to bring a new level of office development to the area, providing a sustainable new-generation office building and creating an attractive working environment for EveryMatrix and its growing team.”

The transaction regarding the building, which is being designed to minimise the impact on the environment and human health, was brokered by real estate consultant SVN Romania, who assisted both parties.

Catalin Stan, Associate Director of Office Division SVN Romania, commented: “The closed transaction represents an important positive indicator for the local office market, both because of the surface leased and also taking into consideration the fact that is a pre lease 18 months prior to the delivery of the projects. It denotes confidence in the market’s evolution and a long term commitment from both companies.”
