The goal of this thesis was to analyze parameters of sustainable construction of educational facility. In the thesis we have examined the legislation, legal frameworks and strategic documents relating to sustainable construction. We have also made a brief summary of the impact of construction on the environment, what sustainable construction is, and why it is a challenge and at the same time the solution of contemporary society.
On this subject we know a lot of terms and definitions such as sustainability, sustainable development, sustainable construction and such, but the correct term is not commonly recognized. For the analysis parameters of sustainable construction in the present facility, the Dovnjak in Kraner method (2013) was used, which is based on four aspects: economic, environmental, social and health care, which must be balanced with each other. This method is upgraded in fourth step, which includes final evaluation and phase of alternative solutions. This method was tested on Primary school Dr. Mihajlo Rostohar. Due to lack of data we restricted ourselves only to the micro level and the level of construction assemblies. At this level, we have made an analysis of construction assemblies regarding thermal conductivity, vapour diffusion and analysis of materials detrimental to health and environment. In the analysis of thermal conductivity and vapour diffusion we have helped with TEDI program and to determine the impact of inbuilt materials on health and environment, we have helped ourselves with technical literature.
Based on the analysis, we found that existing construction assemblies in the majority do not meet the requirements set by the method used at the micro level. Thus, we can say that the parameters of sustainable construction in the present education facility are not met. In the case of the solutions proposed construction assemblies we have met all the requirements set out at the micro level. On the basis of this we can claim that the requirements of sustainable construction would be met, with the proposed renovation of the building.
