Also known as Project Dynamo, Olympia Park, Moscow was originally designed by London Architects John McAslan & Partners. It is located on the bank of the Khimkinsky reservoir in the Russian capital’s city centre and consists of three five-storey office blocks for mixed use and leisure facilities.
The $1oom project is described as “setting a new multi-use architectural and masterplanning benchmark for Moscow”. Playing a major part in forming this identity are the exceptional facades on the complex, consisting of large glazed panels integrated into a conventional stick construction curtain wall. An unusual aspect of this interesting project is the international base of those involved; the curtain wall being designed by a Turkish company, Ant Yapi, and working in conjunction with a local main contractor, Aygün.
Wintech have provided a wide selection of their services including original specification writing, tender auditing, design auditing and site auditing. The developer Horus was keen throughout the design and procurement process to maintain the original design intent of McAslan’s avant-garde appearance. The project was completed in 2011.
