GreenWings Offices Topping Out

On August 29th 2013  the topping out of one of the newest Warsaw offices  GreenWings at 17 Stycznia Street in the near vicinity of Chopin Airport was celebrated. In compliance with tradition, there a topping out ceremony was held  for all involved in the Greenwings Office project , which will represent a state of the art office building in Warsaw and Poland.

On this day installation of equipment in the parking garage and on office floors was already advanced. Moreover, facade and raised office floors had been started up.

"GreenWings is an intelligent and maintenance-free office building that is ready to accept the most demanding tenant accustomed to using the state-of-the-art solutions",
says engineer Leszek Dzido, head of the project on behalf of CFE Polska, the general contractor.

All elements of architectural concrete that require a high level of expertise have been successfully implemented. Unique permanent vertical external blinds designed by JEMS Architekci office – designers of GreenWings office – have successfully passed strength tests in a specialist aerodynamics tunnel of Cracow University of Technology. Leszek Dzido said that the general contractor has received thanks from the Cracow University for the possibility of running a multi-surface study of such specific and innovative element of façade architecture. The head of their research team that was responsible for the tests of the trial elements underlined that Poland has no tradition and culture of aerodynamics research on building façade and hence this was a very interesting issue and project for any research centre.

"Topping out GreenWings Offices constitutes one of the main milestones in this widely-expected business investment. Works are done according to the schedule and the office will be finished on February 2014. However, it will be given to the use in two months at the latest. The office arouses great interest thanks to its rarely-seen modernity and energy-efficiency. Today, these parameters are of crucial importance for any tenant"
, says Ronnie Richardson, of OKRE Development on the topping out day.
