European Quarter’s Building 17 has won the prestigious International BREEAM Awards 2021 in the category “Homes - Design Stage”. The sustainable building has become the first project in Russia to receive a distinguished award in the entire contest’s history. 

"The BREEAM Awards is aimed to highlight the best sustainable projects worldwide," - says Shamir Ghumra, director of BREEAM, Bre Group. "Every year, experts of our Institute shortlist the nominees of the contest according to multiple criteria. Among them are the assessment of the BREEAM certificate, exceptional experience for a country and willingness of the participating building companies to advance their knowledge and implement them in practice."

Building 17 will also be the first BREEAM-certified residential project in the region. It has already received the Interim BREEAM certificate with a credit score of 74.4% - a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating. The project is designed by KCAP for real estate developer Brusnika as part of our masterplan from 2014 for this new neighbourhood.
