The Project has a total area of 88,526.66 m2 and comprises the construction of a 55,755.36 m2 Office Center with 11 levels (2 basement levels) and a Heliport. It also includes the construction of a 12-level parking lot platform (32,771.30 m2) and 2 basement levels.
The project is in the process of obtaining the LEED BD & C V3.0, Core and Shell Certification developed by USGBC (US Green Building Council), based on energy and environmental principles.
This process has been developed since the draft stage, and it is still being developed now during the construction phase. For this stage, Management Plans are being developed for the recycling of waste materials; erosion and sedimentation control; air quality control, purchasing of materials with low VOCs, to achieve the LEED Gold Certification.
The contract period is 20 months. The construction of the project started on July 1st, 2013, and is currently under gray work. Right now, the tenth level and the platform of the ninth level are under construction. The project has 1,212 indoor parking spaces, as well as three entrances, one of which is a vehicular bridge that reaches the fifth level of the platform. It will also have 16 elevators, of which there are three panoramic elevators.
From July to October 2013 the work performed was earthmoving and construction of anchored walls, which are between 9 and 12 m high. Given that the walls were so high, with a considerable thickness and due to occupational health issues, it was decided to employ Berlin technique of building walls. This technique involves the construction of a screen of micro pilings, to help the land stay stable and be able to reach the level of formwork of the foundations.
We are currently working in parallel with the external building works which include everything related to stormwater, sanitary and drinking water infrastructure, as well as electricity, telecommunications and construction of a treatment plant, retaining walls and a fire tank , along with and a number of utilities in the surroundings of the building and the platform.
We also started with the finishes of the project, especially everything related to the construction of the support structure for durock facades, compound aluminum and windows, with the intention of closing the building start finishing the common areas.
