25.11.2016 RuGBC & MGSU Sign MoU with BRE - to develop BREEAM in Russia
BREEAM, Russia's most popular Green Building Standard, has taken a leap forward this week as BRE Directors Gavin Dunn and Martin Townsend visited Russia to sign an MOU with its Russian partners - the MGSU & RuGBC.
The agreement foresees translation of the Standard and the further development of the localisation - bringing BREEAM into line with Russian construction norms and language. "This is a major step forward for the green construction industry in the CIS and for our Council, We look forward to working in conjunction with MGSU to increase the number of "green" projects and make the tool more accessible to non-English speakers", Guy Eames, RuGBC cofounder commented.
The agreements were signed at the RuGBC AGM and at the MGSU Technical Committee for Green Building Standards by CEO Vladimir Limin (RuGBC), Valery Telichenko (MGSU President) and Martin Townsend (Director of BREEAM Internationally) on 24/11/16
