A developer must consider the relationship with the
environment and social responsibility. Do you agree?
D. Kastl: Absolutely. Developers shape and change the
environment where people of the present and future
generations will work and live. I believe that the politics
of the 1990s with the motto of maximized profit and
minimized responsibility has already become history
with the total majority of developers. Unfortunately,
that practice has left our enterprise branded with a poor
reputation even though many projects are of excellent
quality and high sustainability.
T. Jirků: Our company’s philosophy is to create buildings
which will make us proud even decades later. We are
very picky about the materials we use, their sustainability,
energy and water management, the exterior solution,
and the complex solution of the project. Our projects
do not only respond to the needs of the here and now.
We think ahead and consider the needs and progress
which will come in the next ten to twenty years. Where
the economics of a particular solution is questioned, this
approach makes some decisions easier.
Thank you for the interview.
