Moscow Property & Facility Tour – the story continues

On September 26, The Moscow Property & Facility Tour was held for the second time this year. The first event, conducted on August 22, was so successful that IM Events arranged another similar tour of Moscow commercial properties.

This time the tour visited two projects that had already gained popularity Gorod Stolits MFC and the SkyLight BC. However, the tour started in the Gorod Shopping and Entertainment Complex in Lefortovo, on Entusiastov St. (developer –TEN GC). The total area of the SEC is over 238,000 sqm. Svetlana Prokhorova, Executive Director of the management company ‘CityService+’, said that the center was built in the shortest possible time – just thirteen months. A special pride is the full-fledged skating rink, which operates independently, without taking power for cooling from the common network.

According to Svetlana Samoilova, Manager of the Gorod, the SEC is distinguished by the well thought-out navigation and distribution of anchor tenants. Thus, the first floor houses the grocery hypermarket Auchan, the second floor houses the sports shop Decathlon, and the third floor houses the construction hypermarket Leroy Merlin. This solution allows redistributing the customer flows in such a way that no other tenants are “left behind”. Another feature of the complex is the fact that all utilities are placed not on the underground levels as usual, but on the roof and on the third floor. Technical details were described by Sergey Tikhonov, chief engineer of the complex. He said that the complex used two independent generators, and this fact could put the building in the first category of power supply reliability. In addition, the complex has its own mini thermal power station, with natural-gas fueled reciprocating-engine generators and boilers allowing for the generation of heat and electricity. Thanks to the mini thermal power station, the facility provides 30% of its electricity and 100% of the heat.

The second project was Gorod Stolits MFC (developer – Capital Group) in the MIBC Moscow-City, which includes two skyscrapers – Moscow Tower (73 floors) and St. Petersburg Tower (62 floors). The project is managed by its own structure – Capex, which is a part of Capital Group. Oleg Tverdokhlebov, Chief Engineer at the Capital Group, told about the way these huge skyscrapers were operated technically. For example, a dedicated thermal capacity of the MFC allows allocating no more than half of the heat.

The chief engineer separately dwelled on the most topical subject – the fire-extinguishing systems and security system in general. Exercises are regularly held in the complex, where the possible emergencies are worked out, evacuations are carried out, and fire escapes are checked. All the finishing is made of special non-combustible materials, the cables of communication networks are also made of fireproof elements.

About 300 security cameras are mounted in the towers to ensure the security and control over emergency situations, and Oleg Tverdokhlebov says that their number will be increased significantly in the near future. The control room of the complex is monitoring the situation all the time, the operation of all elevators and escalators is displayed on the screens. This allows responding instantly all kinds of equipment failures.

At the end of the excursion, the participants looked into the suites on the 64th floor. All the suites are renovated and fully finished, so a buyer has to bring only his furniture and personal belongings. According to the chief engineer, this approach is best suited for a large building.

At the end of the tour, the participants went to the SkyLight Office Center. Alexey Shpakovich, Manager from the Hals-Development Company, talked about the construction of this project. The complex consists of two towers (Tower A and Tower B) with a total area of 110,000 sqm, united by a 5-story stylobate part. Both towers of the office complex have the same height (109.2 m) and the same number of stories (27 floors), while at the same time, each of them is functionally independent. The design provides for an underground parking lot for 712 vehicles. The management and maintenance of the facility is provided by Colliers International FM.

Oleg Andryushin, deputy general director for operations at Colliers International FM, told more about the engineering arrangement of the building and its technical features. All utilities are placed on the first basement floor, including a 1400 kVA diesel generator and an uninterruptible power supply. They allow maintaining the building under the first power supply category. Oleg Andryushin took guests to the control room, where everyone could clearly see the principle of operation of the BMS, which helps control the climate in the building.

According to the participants of the tour, the information obtained during the tour proved to be useful and relevant. Anatoly Gelyukh from Esta Property Management shared his impressions of the trip: “As for me, Gorod Stolits proved to be the most perfect project of those I had seen; I learned a lot of useful information on the organization of the technical personnel, the work of technical services and lift facilities.”
