Budimex has built a modern office building for Ghelamco Poland in Kraków. The cubic capacity of the entire investment is over 73 thousand. m3, and its usable area reaches 10 thousand. m2. The building has four above-ground floors. There is a service part on the ground floor. The building has a two-level underground garage, equipped m.in. in a bicycle parking lot with sockets for charging electric two-wheelers.
The building was built in the BREEAM system, which means that both at the design and execution level, the investment has been subjected to a strict assessment in terms of its impact on the environment. The office building has m.in installed. light intensity sensors that automatically adjust its power, depending on the time of day or cloudiness. In the pass-through parts and in the sanitary rooms, presence sensors were used to automatically turn on the lighting. In addition, the windows are equipped with reed switches that turn off the air conditioning in the area where the window is opened. The employees of the office building also have at their disposal over 200 m2 of terrace located on the roof, from which there is a view of the panorama of Krakow, along with its most characteristic places – Wawel Castle and the Kościuszko Mound.
The main tenant of the investment is Bank State Street, for which Budimex has arranged four floors. The Bank requires the use of special architectural and construction solutions. For this reason, the investment has been equipped, for example, with anti-terrorist protection, a system of mobile flood barriers, or a leak detection installation in individual rooms. In turn, in the underground garage, which will accommodate 125 cars, safety locks have been built.
