In June 2019, MEGA Silk Way shopping mall received the international certificate of ecological building certificates BREEAM In-Use: Part 2-Building Management with an «Excellent» rating of 75.4%. To date, this is the only building in Kazakhstan with a rating of this level. This means that the facility and its operational policy meet the highest international standards to ensure that visitors and tenants meet a wide range of needs.
First of all, it provides a comfortable, safe and accessible environment, an established system of interaction with users of the building, a precautionary operation policy aimed at improving the operational parameters of the building and reducing energy and water consumption. The building uses efficient heating and ventilation systems, modern lighting system, automatic control and resource consumption accounting system.
The certification took into account the availability of social and consumer services, as well as additional solutions, in addition to those required by law, to ensure access to the building by citizens with disabilities.
