Good Practice Information

The newly constructed kindergarten in Markovci is a modern, energy-efficient pre-fabricated wood construction. Sustainable technologies and materials were used to provide high energy efficiency and optimise operational cost. 75 % of the highly energy efficient building that only consumes 32 kWh/m2/year were financed by the Municipality of Markovci. As the population in the area is growing,
the new kindergarten meets the requirements of new inhabitants and simultaneously becomes a leading example for energy efficient building that raises public awareness.
