“LEED served as a yardstick for us. In every discussion with the project team, we would say, ‘You know what, maybe we can do this, too.’ You start adding a few small things—you advance. You build upon everyone’s ideas. The learning curve for this project was huge and rewarding.” Deepa Sathiaram, LEED Fellow and project lead for the first LEED-certified building in South Sudan
"The development pipeline in Zagreb has slowed to a trickle over recent years, but the certification of Business Center Adris is a strong indication that the market is turning. LEED certification sends a strong message that the building meets international quality and sustainability standards. As market confidence improves, I anticipate that this building will be seen as a trendsetter and that almost all future office developments will also be certified." LEED AP Michael Smithing, Director of the Green Building Advisory for Eastern Europe at Colliers International and project consultant on the first LEED-certified building in Croatia
