S IMMO AG: BREEAM certification for Eurocenter in Zagreb
First BREEAM In-Use Certificate in Croatia
The Eurocenter – part of stock exchange listed S IMMO AG’s portfolio since 2008 – recently became the first BREEAM In-Use certified building in Croatia. The building was designed by the Zagreb-based architect Nenad Bach and features six storeys, two underground garages with 123 parking spaces, and a cafeteria. The building is
located in Zagreb’s city centre and offers its tenants over 7,500 m² of office space.
The measures completed during the certification process included the installation of an energy control system, which significantly reduced the building’s energy costs. Bicycle racks and showers for employees further increase the value of the building and the utility for the tenants. “With the first BREEAM certification on the Croatian market, we have further strengthened Eurocenter’s leading position in Zagreb. The fact that we achieved a ‘Very Good’ rating makes us even prouder,” noted Friedrich Wachernig, Member of S IMMO AG’s Management Board.
The BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is the leading and most widely used voluntary certification method for properties. It covers a wide range of environmental and sustainability aspects. The method’s high standards ensure optimal, sustainable design and serve as a measure of a building’s environmental impact.
