Vaccine rollout picking up pace throughout Europe

Vaccine rollout picking up pace throughout Europe
May 4 2021 Share

The Netherlands reopened alfresco hospitality with Belgians ignoring official advice and driving a short distance across the border to enjoy their neighbouring country’s freedom. According to Guardian graphics, Malta’s vaccination rollout is among the highest in Europe as it has vaccinated 76.9 persons out of every hundred. The Netherlands is, according to latest data, administering a jab every half a second to its population of 17.2 million.

Around 20% of the population in each EU country, with only a few exceptions such as Bulgaria and Croatia, have been vaccinated. Malta is leading the way in this sector as 52.43% of the country’s population has been vaccinated. A European Commission official stated that vaccination in the EU is increasing dramatically as the battle against COVID-19 continues.

May 4 2021 Share

The Quad Central is projected to achieve LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certification from U.S. Green Building Council (‘USGBC’), laying the ground to make this not only one of Malta’s, but also one of Europe’s most sustainable developments. The Quad Central will be a true next-generation development, joining the ranks with some of Europe’s most iconic and ‘greenest’ buildings, including Frankfurt’s skyline-defining Messeturm and The Crystal in London.

As part of the certification process, the design submission was made to the USGBC for preliminary accreditation, with a further construction submission to be presented upon project completion.

Designed by leading architectural firm DeMicoli & Associates on behalf of The Quad Central, this extraordinary new development will set new standards for environmental sustainability in Malta. LEED® certification offers independent verification of the development’s green features, including design, construction, operations, and maintenance of a resource-efficient and high performing working space. These features not only reduce operational costs, but also ensure the greatest health benefits for building occupants and the wider environment.

With over 44,000 square meters of mixed commercial floor space, The Quad Central is sited in Malta’s Central Business District. This mixed-use development will provide an exciting mix of Grade A professional and commercial office space, supported by a diversified range of catering and amenity outlets, ample parking facilities and spacious landscaped outdoor areas.

Included in The Quad Central’s sustainability credentials are, amongst others, ultra-low energy use, energy generation and efficient management features, reduced water use, zero use of chemicals and low construction waste as well as the development maximising potential for green and public transport.

Greenfuturenow.cz s.r.o. are lead contractors on the project.

 

Catherine Hurley, Chief Executive officer of The Quad Central commented: “LEED® Platinum certification will be a major achievement for The Quad Central. From its very inception all of the Stakeholder’s determined that The Quad Central would bring not only huge social and economic benefit to Malta, but would deliverer as sustainable development helping to create a long-lasting positive environmental impact”

Eric Johnson MSc, MRICS, LEED AP, BD+C, O+M, ID+C, BREEAM AP, & LFA, Principal Sustainability Project and Cost Manager, Greenfuturenow.cz s.r.o., commented: “I’m delighted to be part of a team constructing a leading example of sustainable design that is designed to be ultra-efficient in its use of energy, water, and construction materials.”

UK to green light travel to less than 10 EU countries

UK to green light travel to less than 10 EU countries
May 4 2021 Share

Malta is likely to be one of the few countries the UK will green light travel to this coming summer. Summer plans for the UK were given a boost on Monday as the EU confirmed travel for vaccinated people will include Europe as of June. The green light however will be given to fewer than 10 countries. The EU will reopen to holidaymakers from countries with low infection rates, with a traffic light system announced this week. Senior Uk government sources said that the number of green lit countries will probably be in single digits.

Boris Johnson stated on Monday that he does not wish to see an influx of diseases and thus the reopening to travel should be done cautiously. Malta might be listed alongside Portugal and Gibraltar as countries which Britons might be able to access in the EU. Further information on other country’s status is set to be issued.
