01Waste and waste management
Design and study documentation are the result of synergistic action of a designer and an expert in the field of environmental and nature protection. Environment and nature protection experts are involved in the development of all levels of design documentation from feasibility studies, conceptual designs to detailed and working designs. By their work and consulting services at the level of Institut IGH they contribute to high quality preparation of documents for the purposes of co-financing from EU Structural Funds, as well as documentation required for the issuance of location and building permits.
Among recent design documents developed by Institut IGH, the following waste management projects stand out: the Environmental Impact Study – modification of the project of Bikarac Waste Management Centre of Šibenik-Knin County – installation of mechanical biological plant for waste treatment, Environmental Impact Study for Jakuševec Landfill, Expert database for obtaining the environmental permit and environmental protection report for Tarno Landfill in Ivanić-Grad or the Waste Management Plan of the Town of Samobor.
Authorized landscape architects and designers of Institut IGH participate in development of all levels of design and study documentation in the field of waste management, park landscaping and infrastructure projects. They develop study documentation such as landscape valorization in environmental protection and physical planning documents, design documentation such as landscaping report or preliminary, detailed and working designs. These projects improve transport infrastructure, parks, children’s playgrounds or rehabilitate degraded areas in general.
At the time of climate changes and green infrastructure, the role of the landscape architect is indispensable. Within IGH, landscape architects have been recognized as an indispensable part of each design team, who contribute to more sustainable and high quality solutions by an interdisciplinary approach to design and planning. Among recent ones, the reference for the following works stand out:
