Within the regular activities of the World Bank’s mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the delegation of this international financial institution, together with representatives of the Federal Ministry of Physical Planning, visited facilities that were undergoing construction and renovations.
During their tour, a visit was organized to the “Muhsin Rizvić” gymnasium in Kakanj, one of 15 educational institutions in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina where construction has been under way since 2018.
This particular building in the last period has undergone several renovations including thermal insulation to the ceiling, replacement of the exterior openings, partial thermal insulation of the façade, and the construction of the final exterior facade layer.
On this occasion, measures implemented thus far were analyzed in detail, and the World Bank delegation expressed their satisfaction with the results achieved and discussed their future plans for the upcoming period.
Along with the “Muhsin Rizvić” gymnasium, within the framework of the Energy Efficiency Project for Bosnia and Herzegovina (BEEP), a total of 37 facilities have been renovated, 24 of which are educational institutions, 8 of which are health institutions and 5 of which are public facilities. In the implementation of energy-efficient measures, a total of more than 18 million KM has been invested, while savings are estimated at over 2 million KM per year and CO2 emissions are expected to be reduced by almost 5,000 tons per year.
In addition to financial savings, significant social benefits have also been achieved, such as warmer rooms, better lighting and better air quality. This contributes to reducing health problems and improving conditions for all users.
