Work is progressing at the construction site of Plac Unii

Plac Unii, Warszawa.

The realisation of the core of the A building – a characteristic 90-metres high tower – has started at the construction site of the office and retail complex Plac Unii. The commissioning of the investment is scheduled for 2013.

In the first half of June, works started on the core of the A building being the part of the office and retail complex Plac Unii. The 21-storey tower with an area of 24,000 sqm will dominate the two 7-storey buildings situated along Boya-Żeleńskiego and Puławskiej streets.

According to previous assumptions, in order to conduct the work effectively, the number of workers on the site will be increased to 600. “Doubling the number of workers will allow us to complete the construction of the A building in a record-breaking time until the end of the year,” explained Mariusz Dziubiński, Project Manager at Liebrecht & wooD, the majority investor. “The construction of Plac Unii proceeds according to the established schedule. We have not observed any delays and are going to maintain the efficient pace of works”.
From a technical point of view, the construction of the tower is related to the necessity to systematically raise cranes supporting the tower (Ż1 and Ż2). So far, the cranes operating at the site have been raised respectively by 5 metres (Ż1 and Ż2) and 7.5 metres (Ż5 supporting the B Building). “When constructing the storeys from +3 to +22, that is till the rooftop of the tower, we are going to use slipform shutters based on Peri’s solutions,” explained Tomasz Szopa, site manager on behalf of Warbud, the general contractor of the investment.

Plac Unii is an office complex combined with a shopping centre, situated in Warsaw between the districts of Śródmieście and Mokotów. The investment comprises of three buildings that altogether offer 41,300 sqm of A+ class office space. In May, the office part of Plac Unii was given a prestigious BREEAM certificate with ‘very good’ mark, thus joining the group of the most ‘green’ buildings in the capital of Poland. The retail part of Plac Unii is constituted by Galeria Miejska which offers 15,500 sqm of space to let, out of which 65 percent have been already commercialised. Among the tenants, there are Supersam, ZARA, Massimo Dutti, Bank ING, Vistula & Wólczanka, W. Kruk, Cubus or Deni Cler.

Plac Unii is being developed by Liebrecht & wooD (the majority investor – 60 percent) together with BBI Development NFI S.A.
