The understanding that buildings have a constantly increasing impact on the environment has changed the attitude towards the designing, construction and building management, whilst the classification of buildings regulating their planning, designing, construction and management contributes to the regulation of the effect on the environment. Sustainable development is defined as the development of community providing opportunity to gain comprehensive well-being at present as well as for the future generations by integrating environmental, economic and social issues, yet not exceeding the acceptable impact on the environment. A chaotic growth of cities jeopardises the environmental stability. At present, the process of real estate development is based on the principle of sustainability. The principles of sustainability have been applied to the designing, evaluation, construction, operation and demolition of buildings. Sustainable real estate development is bound up with construction of recreational buildings. For sustainability assessment of Druskininkai Snow Arena the BREEAM New construction 2011 system has been selected based on the BREEAM New construction 2011 assessment instrument. The Indicative Overall BREEAM Score was 57.80 %, it has been evaluated as "Very Good", which is a high result for a recreational building in Lithuania.
