A serious misjudgment in the design of many offices is the lack of in-built capability to change the functional designation of working areas quickly enough. Suppose a company faces the imminent sublease of some premises. In this instance floor-to-ceiling enclosing structures need to be installed; also ventilation and air-conditioning systems are to be provided for new zones. There is an agile technology today: designing MEP systems with an in-build capacity to design office space using the principle of construction sets for kids.
In his interview for CRE magazine Business Development Director at Gint-M Artem Panteleev dwells on forestalling engineering mistakes at the stage of design.
Concentration of style and luxury within small space always requires special skills from architects, designers and builders. Here, as nowhere else, the devil in the details rule is at work.

AI Center Samsung Electronics opened in BC White Square Building C. Gint-M was general contractor and designer in this project. “This was one of the most ambitious, daunting and challenging projects for us – both in terms of solutions integrated therewith and deadlines. We had only 2.5 months at our disposal, that’s tough,” says Artem Panteleev, Business Development Director, Gint-M.
Gint-M is through with the works to renovate part of the office for the international software company. The design was developed by ABD Architects. In the capacity of general contractor Gint-M carried out a full range of detailed design, construction, fit-out and MEP installation works in the client’s premises.
Gint-M is through with building an office for the international IT company OpenText creating paperwork optimization applications for the corporate market. The relocation of OpenText to a new office was caused by the consolidation of several business units and the need to ensure their effective engagement within one corporate space. The office of OpenText is accommodated in BC Renaissance Pravda, St. Petersburg.
Gint-M has completed construction works on a corporate office for a leading property management company. The result is a modern, convenient office geared towards the company’s specifics. You’ll find several functional spaces here: reception, open workspace, 2 meeting rooms, several walled offices for chief executives as well as a kitchen and coffee zone where employees can discuss business matters in an informal setting.

The renovation of old offices, challenging and labor-intensive as it can be, is further complicated in the Russian reality by the fact that it is often impossible to gather together documented reports on how a given building was constructed. This naturally leads to unpredictability on the construction site, which in turn makes the project delivery more expensive and time-consuming.
