Project description

,,Arka” office building. This exceptional design building is unique not only because of its looks, but also cause of its extremely high energy efficiency rating of A+.

Long-term experience: Contractor ,,YIT Kausta”, architectural firm „G.Natkevičius ir partneriai” as well as structural engineering company ,,DESCON” has been working together for years now and has the experience as well as knowledge to design and build such complicated buildings. This means that only the best solutions was used and no mistakes were made in any stage of design or construction.

BIM: All of the project investors understood why BIM is so important for such building. Building information model allows us to optimize construction process and find any mistakes that would go unnoticed when using conventional 2D modeling methods. Furthermore, we avoid any clash of structural elements which results in significant cost and time savings.

Cost: Through BIM we have been able to deliver measurable cost and time savings for the client both in construction stage and after building is completed. Further savings are a result of great energy efficiency.

Unconventional design and structure: This building is unique and uses unusual structural solutions which are very complicated. ,,Arka” office building will have a street going through it, that meant that we needed to perform extra calculations to make sure that unconventional structural elements that we will be using is going to work. In this case prestressed concrete was used because of its superior structural performance.
