The 12,500 sqm office building has recently undergone a complete transformation, and today it welcomes tenants and guests with innovative solutions and a wide range of possibilities. On the occasion of ACADEMIA’s renewal, the developer, ConvergenCE set the goal of promoting the physical and mental well-being of employees working in the building and creating the highest possible level of professional working environment.
The execution of the ideas was envisioned with BUILDEXT, which provided unique architectural and interior design solutions in the region, equipped with state-of-the-art technology. In the meantime, the complex has obtained the WiredScore-Gold certification and soon it will proudly boast popular green certifications in the real estate sector, such as BREEAM, WELL, and Access4you.
The Danube riverside lobby, located in the classical wing, has been refitted with new flooring and wall coverings, while the ceiling received a custom-made copper-coloured covering. The machinery has been upgraded and new energy-efficient LED lighting has been installed. Soon visitors will be able to admire the artworks of graduates from MOME (Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design) in both reception areas.
The new reception desks and access gates equipped with the latest technology have been installed in both wings. The two lobby areas will be connected, creating a much more spacious and modern space, allowing all building services will be accessible to tenants from both wings.
The lobby facing Akadémia Street received the same flooring as the traditional side, while the conference room was separated from the lobby area by a glass wall. This further expands the range of services offered by the building.
The audiovisual technology for the conference room is currently being installed and will be operational starting at the end of July. This means that for meetings and events with a capacity of 12 to 60 people, ACADEMIA’s clients will have access to the latest conference and meeting technology.
In line with sustainability, the developer preserved the original limestone tiles, which were reinstated during the renovation.
ConvergenCE took care of the complete renovation of the underground parking garage, with a greater emphasis on modern solutions and technology.
● New rapid entrance gates and a license plate recognition system are helping easier access to the underground parking garage.
● Energy-efficient LED lighting, epoxy resin flooring and painting work on the four basement levels complete the transformation.
● Dedicated changing rooms and secure bicycle storage facilities are available to cyclists, further enhancing the convenience of employees commuting on two wheels.
Elevators in both wings have been renovated, featuring digital displays integrated into the mirrors. Upon reaching the top floor via the elevator, a noticeable innovation is the installation of a heat pump on the roof.
ACADEMIA thus emphasizes both impressive and modern execution, as well as user-friendly tech solutions. The final works will soon be completed, and by the first week of August, the riverside building will proudly display its full splendour in one of the most beautiful areas of the capital of Hungary.
