The logistics center of Kargo Partner is located in "Busmantsi, Iskar Area, Sofia Municipality.
The zone is industrial, with transport and engineering infrastructure available.
The Logistic center is with a total area of 14 585 sq.m, consisting of:
•Warehouse hall for high-storey storage
• Overloading and repackaging hall
• Administrative block
• Technical facilities and infrastructure necessary for the operation of the complex.
The design solution fulfills the investor's assignment on the functional links between the different technology units and the logistics center administration.
Three functional and constructive modules were developed, separated by a joint: one storey warehouse, overloading and repacking hall on two floors with a cargo elevator between the floors and an administrative block on four floors with a partial fifth floor above the main vertical communication core.
In all three modules, the construction is mixed - reinforced concrete foundations and columns, and a metal roof structure. In the warehouse and hall overload and repacking the reinforced concrete structure is prefabricated and in the administrative module - monolithic.
The development of the project emphasizes the function and architecture of the administrative building with an intention to creating a good working and resting environment for the staff.
At the last 5th level of the administrative unit there is a space with an open-air terrace.for the staff to rest.
The architecture of the complex is in harmonic with the functional and technological specifics of the logistics center. Тhe structure is compact with correct geometric shapes and clear silhouettes. As a constraint of the otherwise pure forms of individual volumes is the facade of the administrative building. The facade is structured by three-level vertical elements made of light gray plaster. The glazing of the three floors was interrupted with colored quilts of etalbond. The verticality of the entrance volume of the building is further emphasized with wooden lining.
