Project Characteristics

  • Seismic safety
  • Energy efficiency
  • Foundation on rocky soil.
  • Use of high grade concrete C30 / 37.
  • Use of certified B500C steel.
  • Excellent placement inside the formwork.
  • Industrially shaped continuous spiral hoop and 4cm spacers.

Energy efficiency class A+ is achieved:


  • Through the installation of a photovoltaic system, sufficient to cover the energy needs of the common areas of the building, using Net Metering system.
  • Through the application of MAPEI Mapetherm thermal façade system, making use of 8cm thick expanded polystyrene insulation board and high-strength silicone paste final coating.
  • Through the installation of EXALCO branded aluminum window frames, with thermal break, combined with low thermal conductivity energy glazing.
  • Through the installation of independent heat pumps combined with floor fan-coils, for both the heating and cooling of the apartments.
  • For the external masonry, 9x19X19 Halkis branded bricks were used, certified according to ISO9001 and ISO14001, combined with MAPEI Mapetherm thermal facade system, making use of 8cm thick expanded polystyrene thermal insulation board.
  • For the internal masonry, dry construction was used, with double plasterboard walls filled with stone wool, for better thermal and sound insulation.

• Special attention was given to waterproofing, with modern certified materials, of the roof, basement walls, bathrooms and balconies, in order to guarantee the maximum durability of the building over time and less maintenance needs.

  • Independent heat pumps and floor fan coil bodies for selecting the ideal winter-summer temperature.
  • 150lt low profile solar energy water heaters.
  • Kleemann branded 8 passenger hydraulic lift with 6 stops, completely in accordance with the standard EN: 81-20.
  • Pre-installation of alarm network, wireless and wired Internet.
  • Two engineering shafts allowing easy control of the building networks, as well as the addition of new ones without interventions in the concrete frame.
  • Water pipes dimensioned according to the mechanical study, running in high strength protection tubing.
  • VALSIR type propylene sewer pipes with valves.
  • COES type insulated multilayer air conditioning pipes.

• Functional solutions of high aesthetics were selected in all woodworks. Both the kitchen and the bedroom cabinets were made of lacquered MDF with wooden handles, while engineered quartz was used for the kitchen countertops.

  • Certified fire alarm system.
  • Voltage monitoring relay and proper grounding.
  • Pre-installation of alarm network.
  • Video intercom system for the main entrance.
  • Security entrance doors, with double shielding, thermal and sound insulation.
  • Use of nontoxic paints for the interior walls.
  • Construction site and employee insurance.

• Each apartment’s electronic record is at the disposal of the owner or future buyer, including photographic material, licenses, contracts, certifications and warranties of the materials and equipment used, as well as network drawings and instructions for the proper operation and maintenance of the building.
