A new plant for the production of lubrication systems was opened in Chodov near Karlovy Vary, owned by the Swedish SKF concern. The building has received the highest award that can be achieved in the field of green building evaluation - LEED Platinum certificate.
The awarded certification assesses the building's economy from several points of view, from the construction phase to the normal operation. In Central and Eastern Europe, this is the first construction of this type (production facility) to achieve the LEED Platinum award.
"This is the first production facility in the CEE region to receive this highest award," said Petr Vogel from EkoWATT, who led the certification team, coordinated the project and construction. "At the same time, the building is among the five buildings with the highest score in the energy efficiency rating area."
