Benoy project New Nivy City in Bratislava has been awarded the BREEAM ?‘excellent’ Communities certification. Benoy delivered the architecture and masterplanning for the 140,000m2 mixed-used scheme which aims to create a unique retail and transport hub uniting the old city and the central business district.
The award was made following a 36 month assessment of the project and highlighted the following factors as key elements:
- support of the local economy, creation of new jobs
- creation of green infrastructure
- air quality monitoring and evaluation during the whole construction process (inclusive of a microclimate study)
- transportation upgrades – high quality bike infrastructure and more
The scheme, which enjoys a unique green roof with public gardens, is the first construction project to receive this certification in Slovakia. Congratulations to all involved. The project is currently on site and due to open in August 2021. Read more here.
