Building of the Month in September 2013

Simple and functional production facility for louver producer in Czech Republic

Czech Builder E.PROXIMA s.r.o. from Olomouc built a new production facility with administrative part in the industrial zone of Prostějov in 10 months. Client ŽALUZIE NEVA s.r.o., producer of shading technology for windows, moved its headquarters into the building.

The building consists of 3 parts: production, storage and two-storey administrative building. The total area is 4,200 m2.

Customer wanted functional and practical buildings with optimal usage of space. For this reason were the buildings designed as rectangle with pitched LPR1000 roof with bridge and 160 mm insulation. Color of the walls is very decent. Investor chose PUR panels including flashings in one united silver-gray color. Large monolithic surfaces are optically broken by combination of smooth panels and panels with sinusoidal corrugation on the administrative building.

Outdoor shading technology of the building accurately expresses the company's business focus. Outdoor louvers are functional component and at the same time contribute to aesthetical architectural look of the building.

Investor speaks highly of cooperation with E.PROXIMA and of quality of Astron building. As a confirmation of a high quality performance of E.PROXIMA and Astron, an extension for painting line of total area of 1,700 m2 is just under construction and will be opened before Christmas 2013.
