The Pearl of Krakow

 |  Category: Events

On 18.10.2018, the president of SPCleantech, Janusz Kahl presented the prize in the competition for the best housing investment in Krakow “Perła Krakowa” in MOCAK – Museum of Contemporary Art. In the current edition, the Chapter decided also to distinguish investments during implementation.

The Pearl of Krakow – City for Citizens is a unique competition promoting a new quality in architecture, emphasizing such values ​​as: green surroundings, attention to the common space, facilities for children, the elderly and the disabled. Innovative solutions, i.e. the so-called “smart home”, are important.

The most important idea behind the creators and the competition chapter is to highlight developer investments that are as user-friendly as possible. The prizes are awarded in several categories, and the most important is the comfort of future residents. All developers’ initiatives for the quality of life are important. The chapter checks the quality of plantings, their coherence with the internal space of the estate and the details of small architecture. Energy saving devices such as recuperation, solar panels and thermal insulation systems are increasingly used. Smart home functions support building management systems and have an increasing impact on our safety by effectively replacing fences and fences. Solutions, which a few years ago bear the hallmarks of luxury, due to the greater requirements of buyers are becoming a standard.
