ABSTRACT
A worldwide trend in terms of sustainability is the construction of green buildings.
Green buildings are efficient in resource using (energetic, natural and social) and
environmentally friendly throughout their life cycle (selection of land and project,
construction process, the operation of the building, reconstruction or liquidation).
Sustainability of buildings is currently investigated by a number of evaluation systems that reflect their design, technical, technological and material solutions. In one of the first green building in Slovakia "EcoPoint Kosice Office Center", which obtained precertificate "Seal of the sustainable construction (DGNB)" in the category of silver, was used a number of "green technologies". This paper presents the process of building certification under the LEED and selected structural-technical solutions that support the principles of sustainability. Combining geothermal wells connected to a heat pump with reinforced Concrete Core Activation (CCA) of ceilings is created highly effective way of surface heating and cooling of buildings. Contribution points out that although the use of new green technologies raises several unexplored risks, ultimately form the necessary framework to meet the requirements of sustainability.
