Construction of Central Point office building is about to start













Central Point is being constructed in a strategic location in the capital – where some of the major arteries of the Warsaw’s Śródmieście district cross – that is the intersection of Marszałkowska and Świętokrzyska Streets. The office building, situated atop and integrated with the Świętokrzyska Metro Station, will feature state-of-the-art construction and design solutions.

“The location atop the only intersection of metro lines in Poland requires us to carry out a number of industry consultations with numerous parties. A key part in the dialogue is obviously played by the Warsaw Metro, but in order to ensure that the project proceeds efficiently, we have also brought in scientists from the Cracow University of Technology, Warsaw University of Technology, and ITB, as well as BWL and Metroprojekt – some of the best design studios in Poland. Also, the contractor of the first part of the facility was not selected randomly. Warbud SA has demonstrated the knowledge of technology and know-how vital for such a demanding project” stresses Jacek Wachowicz, CEO IMMOBEL Poland. 

Four out of 26 storeys of the office building will be located underground. The lowest storey – the one intended for the car park – will be located at -13.5 m (upper surface of the bottom slab), yet the slurry walls which will form the basis of the entire building reach even lower levels – as deep as 39 meters underground. The construction of the underground part of Central Point will take about 9 months, while the entire facility is going to be ready by the end of Q2 2020.

“The building structure is steel-based, whereas the storeys have been grouped and suspended to its body using special rods. Thanks to this engineering solution, most of the forces acting on the building are transmitted to its foundations via the body” summarises Łukasz Dołęga, Development Director responsible for the implementation of the Central Point investment on behalf of IMMOBEL.
