PRESENTATION OF BUSINESS CENTER
BUSINESS CENTER /BC/ – a boutique Class A business building located in one of the capital’s most attractive and fast developing business zones – the Sofia Airport area, surrounded solely by new business blocks.
Bus stops of lines 84 and 384 and an underground station with planned start-up in 2013 are in close proximity to BC.
For the past 3 years the Sofia Airport area has been one of the capital’s fastest developing business locations. Around 45% of the modern industrial sites in Sofia are situated in its vicinity. Several major business projects: Autounion Centre, Porsche Business Centre, Sofia Airport Centre – have been constructed along Christopher Columbus Boulevard. The buildings of a number of top logistics companies - DHL, Unimasters Solutions, TNT – are also located in this zone.
Construction of several large-scale projects by international investors has been envisaged.
BUSINESS CENTER is situated on a 1,833 square metre site and has total built-up area of 10,355 square metres, including 2 underground and 10 overground levels.
The building is made up of two parts: a two-story commercial section (showroom and restaurant) and an eight-story office section, 36m in height from the level of its appurtenant site. The main entrances to the office and commercial sections are from the square facing the intersection of Christopher Columbus Boulevard and Prodan Tarakchiev Street in front of the building. Vehicle access to the two underground levels is via an outdoor car ramp from the southwestern part of the property, i.e. Christopher Columbus Blvd. All building areas feature accessible environment for disabled people as well as the necessary handicap parking spaces. The structure of the building is reinforced concrete framework, with additional Berlin Wall underpinning applied to the two underground levels.
Main technical characteristics of BUSINESS CENTER
Façades and Roofs
The outer contour of the building features ovals and acute angles to resemble the shape of an eye developed as a decorative element on the roof. This remarkable design has made BUSINESS CENTER one of the most prominent and innovative structures in Bulgaria.
Up to the +9.00 m level, a suspended façade has been constructed from ETEM E-85 aluminium profiles integrating two-barrier low-heat-transfer double glazing and thermal panels made from non-combustible PVDF-coated ENF sheet in the thick sections zone.
An innovative technology uses the energy-saving double façade system for solar protection, for
overheating/overcooling prevention and for energy efficiency improvement.
The façade concept for the tall section consists in the construction of a specific double skin façade
system offering the following advantages:
• Buffer for overheating prevention;
• Wind protection;
• Solar shield;
• Natural ventilation/cooling during the summer months;
• Energy efficiency;
• Mechanical protection of the inner façade.
The double skin façade consists of an outer ‘skin’, an inner ‘skin’ and an air layer between them.
The outer skin is a laminated tempered glass panel - 12/1.76/12 Pl.B.Linea Azzurra and
10/1.76/10 – Pl.B.Linea Azzurra – with integrated sun protection print having 34.5% density.
The inner skin has been constructed from ETEM series E-45 façade aluminium casings and railing
strips from ELVAL ENF TM aluminium sheet (non-combustible PVDF-coated ENF sheet) and highquality thermal insulation.
The ELVAL ENF TM aluminium sheet is non-combustible and fully compliant with the international
regulations concerning the fire protection of buildings and construction materials.
Similar double skin façades have been constructed for two other buildings in the world: the
Salvation Army Headquarters in London and the Munich Reinsurance Company building.
The roofs are flat, with intensive greenery. For this purpose, the thickness of the light weight soil
substrate above the showroom is 60 cm allowing for low and medium-sized trees to be planted.
The vegetation planted on a 35 cm soil layer on the +32.67 m level will contribute to the
reduction of the harmful ??2 emission to the atmosphere and will also protect the last floor
against overheating or overcooling.
Synergy of spaces and integrated services for their users
The building features 10 overground and 2 underground levels containing areas with different
functions aimed at a lasting mix of mutually beneficial services. The first-class commercial areas suitable for showrooms are located on the ground level and have large windows facing the street.
The business restaurant with coffee lounge and panoramic terrace on the second floor has been
designed to cater for both the people working in the building and their business associates.
The conference rooms (294 sq.m.) are situated on the first floor. They are partitioned using
Dorma Moveo movable walls and can change their surface area with regard to the specific
occasion. The guarded indoor car park guarantees the safety of personal and company vehicles.
The centralised management including maintenance of the communal areas and systems,
cleaning and security, guarantees the high level of customer care and occupancy and security
