Works on an underpass to connect The Warsaw HUB with the Rondo Daszyńskiego metro station have started as planned. It will enable future tenants and customers of the complex to directly get to the convenience centre inside the building.
Initial works are underway at Rondo Daszyńskiego in Warsaw to build an underpass which will connect Ghelamco’s skyscrapers with the platforms of the second metro line.
As a part of the first stage, an open excavation will be made to accurately assess, secure and order the underground networks as well as prepare for suspension. Next, a vertical wall securing the excavation for the duration of construction as well as network support piles will be built.
“Once the tunnel’s ceiling is delivered, the area will be restored to the original condition. The final stage will involve building the tunnel’s structure using the so called suspended-ceiling method and connecting it to the Rondo Daszyńskiego metro station and The Warsaw HUB complex. The building technology, which takes into account viable technical solutions, was developed by Ghelamco,” explains Piotr Podhorecki, Technical Office Manager, Ghelamco Poland, responsible for coordinating projects works in the tunnel.
“The Warsaw HUB is one of the first and very few buildings in Warsaw with direct access to a metro station. Building such a tunnel is a very complex and multi-stage engineering and logistics operation which uses various building technologies and techniques. Ultimately, it will improve user comfort and availability of the complex to the tenants and customers visiting the convenience centre,” says Jarosław Zagórski, Commercial and Business Development Director, Ghelamco Poland.
The above-ground works related to the underpass are planned for this year, followed by the underground part. Direct access to the finished tunnel leading from the Rondo Daszyńskiego metro station to The Warsaw HUB will be completed prior to commissioning the building.
Future tenants and customers of The Warsaw HUB will be able to get to the building without going out to the surface. The underground tunnel connected to the metro station will lead straight into the convenience centre on level -1, available for everyone. The convenience centre will include, among others, restaurants, cafes, a drugstore, dry cleaner’s and other commercial spaces.
