Enova, an independent certifying agency for residential buildings, issued an energy certificate for Miljacka project, which is being built in Sarajevo, developing company MS&Wood d. d. said. From 2013 the certificate is obligatory for all new objects and old public buildings.
Units in Miljacka quarter, named after Sarajevo’s main river, have façade insulation 15 centimetres thick, as well as thermal insulation between apartments and towards corridors. Windows with PVC frames have three glass layers, which is one of the first such applications in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Flats have individual calorimeters and water metres. Sarajevo needs a revolution when it comes to solving the greatest causes of air pollution, the biggest one being energy inefficient apartments, said Hrusto Tupeković, head of Miljacka project. When BiH joins the European Union, it won’t be possible to sell flats and houses without the certificate, he underscored.
