Chronology

2019

Due to its imaginative articulation into seven interconnected pavilions, the new SHQ CSOB headquarters for 1,400 employees and 300 trainees located on the slopes in Prague-Radlice looks almost inconspicuously. It can be partly attributed to its green roofs that visually integrate the building into the green slope.

Thanks to the designer’s complex, integrated approach to the design, the building was certified LEED Platinum, ranking among 6-8 best-built projects in Europe. Compared with the LEED reference project, the SHQ CSOB headquarters’ power consumption is approximately 60% lower, which allowed it to cover all its heat and cool needs by drilled boreholes.

The building utilizes all reasonably applicable elements (radiant ceilings, night ventilation including possible natural ventilation at daytime, controlled lighting and MEP according to room occupancy and similar) to ensure a healthy environment for all employees.

The project documentation was generated from the IMS (Building Information Model) developed employing the BIM method; it is also used to manage and operate the building; The SHQ ČSOB building was awarded the title Build of the Year 2019 for the scope of used BIM technologies.

The project SHQ – new CSOB headquarters in Prague 5 won among the new office centres due to its comprehensive design for KBC Group companies strongly emphasizing environmental qualities for employees, the connection to the existing CSOB headquarters and, last but not least, ecological solutions and delicate positioning of the building into the surroundings.
