Waltrovka is a project of Penta Investments, whose goal is to gradually revitalize large area in Prague's Jinonice in the former Walter Motors factory. The administrative building Aviatica has already been built and other administrative building called Dynamica is being built, which directly adjoins Aviatica and follows it architecturally.
Under the name Waltrovka Mechanica, there is a new building of two administrative buildings and a complete reconstruction of the third "Walter" building, where all the important architectural elements have been preserved with reference to the original industrial architecture.
Mechanica is part of the Waltrovka project, which will be located closest to Jinonice Metro Station, with its connection by a footbridge. On the adjacent central square, new shops, restaurants and other services were created to make this part of Waltrovka alive.
Mechanica features a total of 35,000 m² of office and retail space, offering users a clean and efficient office layout design with a wide range of shops and services on the ground floor of all three buildings.
Construction management is a project management system that involves splitting a building between multiple vendors. Their selection, coordination and control is in charge of the construction manager team, which ensures the service exactly according to the needs of the investor. This form of management applies where projects are implemented without the participation of the general contractor. The experience of foreign construction companies shows that this is a very flexible way of building management. It leads to a faster transfer of project requirements from the investor and the architect to the developer himself, without the use of an intermediary in the form of a general contractor. In the case of a construction project implementation, the investor is also in direct contractual relation with the contractors of the individual parts of the building.
K4 a.s. in accordance with the requirements of the investor managed the construction management system. Project manager for Waltrovka Mechanica was Ing. Pavel Opatřil. The construction was completed and approved in 2017, during 2018 there were plows of individual tenants.
