In the summer of 2018, the central office of Ukrainian ROSHEN Confectionery Corporation changed its location. Now it is located on the territory of its own factory on Nauki avenue, Kiev in one of the former industrial buildings. To Create a new space became possible to make due to the production diversification. As a result, several workshops were freed up from technical equipment.
It was decided to equip modern open space offices for the employees in one of the facilities. The redevelopment of the old workshop was a part of a large-scale reconstruction of the factory. It also included the improvement of its territory with setting of an ice rink with an area of 2000 square meters and a dynamic fountain. The new public space is called Roshen Plaza.
Architectural offices from Ukraine and France were working on the renovation project of the Roshen factory. They were responsible for three stages of further work, such as: re-equipment of the old workshop for office space, renovation of the facade and of landscaping. To date the first two stages have already been completed and a part of the third one. The general contractor was VOROPAY CONSTRUCTION company, which also has completed a part of the subcontract work. Vladimir Voropay tells more about the project
You mentioned this project to be one of the most difficult lately, but also one of the most interesting. Why?
More than 35 companies participated in this project, including the customer service, three design organizations and contracting firms, while at the construction site there could be 220-250 people. The difficulty was to fulfill it in time with so many participants. In addition to the three main plans, some contractors needed to create their own drawings of ventilation and air conditioning systems, etc. We had to bring together all main participants and their project developments. A very long branch of the coordination structures turned out to be involved.
