The Business Center Postova 1 in Zilina, Slovakia, is the construction of the year!
The Poštová 1 business center in Žilina won two categories in the
nationwide Construction of the Year 2019 competition - the Award for
Extra Quality of Construction and the Award for the Application of
Science and Research in the Design and Construction of a Building.
The second prize is the Prize for the application of science and research in the design and construction of a building, where the jury was particularly interested in the architectural solution of the atrium roofing and modification of the existing skeleton, where an innovative and unique technology of lowering the ceilings was used.
The individual parts were raised and lowered to a new position, thus eliminating the height differences of the floors of the individual floors. In addition to making the premises more efficient, the lowering of the ceilings also significantly reduced the amount of waste and the consumption of new material on the construction site, which ultimately has a significant impact on the environment.
