Technical Brief
Structure The building is a cast-in-situ reinforced concrete structure. Rectangular and circular columns on a 5.8 m x 7.7 m axes support two-way slabs integral with drop beams. Limited bearing walls in the building ensure flexible space planning.
External Envelope

Ventilated façade system. Façade finishing material glazed ceramic of German manufacture. Façade finish at ground floor 30 mm granite of Polish origin.

All window mullions from ground to third floor of German manufacture with a thermal break. External glazing at ground level laminated float-glass. Windows at building interior expandable to full limit as viewed from outside.

Internal Architectual Finishes

Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems

The building is fully air-conditioned using Fan Coil Units (FCU) controlled by room thermostats.

There is an extra capacity for additional cooling, if required by future tenants.

The supply air is conditioned by three air-handling units and it is introduced to office and shopping areas by means of ducts, FCUs and ceiling diffusers. All air-handling units are equipped with heat exchangers for saving energy. Outside -fresh- air rate is designed for 30 m3/h per person.

Perimeter zones are heated with wall type panel radiators.

CHS has one air-cooled chiller and two gas heated boilers. Chilled water is made by an air-cooled chiller and building heating water is made by boilers.

Fan-Coil Units Fan Coil Units are designed for two-pipe system for cooling only. Fan coil units installation has been done for easy and low cost tenant fits out work.

Controls of chiller and boilers are achieved by respective electronic control panels. Air-handling units are controlled from the motor control center (MCC) as well as from the CAD room.

During summer, room temperature is controlled by room thermostat, which controls the chilled water flow and 3-speed fan unit on fan coil unit.
During winter, temperature control for heating is done by radiator thermostats.

Building controls have been simplified for easy and reliable operation, which also yield a low cost for tenant fit out works and any controls modifications as well.
