The original building was designed in 1976 by architect Jan Štípek and completed in 1979. The extensive reconstruction performed on the building in 2011-2012 involved major construction modifications and an overall change in the building’s appearance. The building was ‘stripped’ down to the level of its load-bearing structure and a new facade was then installed with large glazed surfaces (‘monitors’). Comprehensive changes were also made to the interior spaces and new technology meeting the demands of modern and intelligent office buildings was installed. The leasable area is roughly 14,000 m2 and the number of parking spaces is approximately 175, 67 of which are on an underground floor.
During the reconstruction of the 10 floors of the high-rise multipurpose building with a predominance of office spaces (8 above-ground floors, 2 underground floors), we performed project management activities for the company S+B Plan & Bau ČR, which is part of the Austrian S+B Gruppe. Along with the developer’s team, the firm supervised the quality of the work, performed cost management and cooperated with the manager responsible for lease changes up to the start of operations. After work was completed and the building was put into operation, the firm subsequently cooperated with the manager of client changes and with the developer’s operations department and handled everyday operational tasks.
This project was highly successful. The building received the 2012 Building of the Year Award and LEED Platinum certification.
