Brain Embassy Czackiego coworking project – a challenge like never before

Conducting redevelopment of a historical building in the city center and adapting it to the needs of a modern coworking space such as Brain Embassy requires broad competence from an engineering company

Especially when the project is delivered in construction management method just like the new facility at 15/17 Czackiego Street in Warsaw owned by Adgar Poland.

The cmT team was engaged by Adgar Poland to perform Project Manager function for Czackiego Brain Embassy Project. Our team consisted of: Construction Manager, Supervision Inspectors of all branches, cost estimators and work coordinators.

Our responsibilities included coordination of  all parties involved – design offices, experts and several dozen contractors. It also involved close cooperation with the Investor in order to achieve the goal – completing the construction within the assumed time, budget and quality. Our priority was to ensure that the rebuilt building would maintain its historical character and at the same time meet modern standards in terms of comfort of use and safety.

A particular challenge was to construct a new building structure while retaining the original façade, which had been carefully restored according to conservation guidelines. The works were conducted in the very centre of Warsaw, so the logistics of the project required coordination and precise planning of deliveries, in order not to disturb the communication and functioning of the neighboring institutions and buildings. As in previous Brain Embassy projects, we paid a lot of attention to the high quality of interior finishing, its ergonomics meeting the WELL requirements and the functioning of installations. All the manufacturing details, which are of special importance in a historical building, were agreed on an ongoing basis with the cooperating design offices during the entire implementation period.
