In his presentation entitled “Sustainable Building – challenges & implementation I Certification process” Dario Travaš, ATP Partner in Zagreb, offered a fascinating insight into the certification of shopping centers. Using the example of Croatia’s first BREEAM-certified shopping center – the ATP Zagreb-designed DO Croatia – he shed light upon the requirements and characteristics of sustainable buildings. These include a high-quality thermally insulated building envelope, an energy-efficient concept with low levels of CO2 emissions and measures to save water.
In addition to this, the panel discussion “The realization of major projects and innovative financial models for green buildings” addressed the city of the future and its intelligent, innovative technologies. The protection of historic buildings, urban renewal and the role of architects and engineers in green projects were also discussed.

A total of more than 20 experts from Europe, North America and South Africa took part in the 20 hour-long panel discussions.
