TriGranit is to start the construction of Building H with an area of 10,000 sqm at the Bonarka for Business (B4B) complex in Kraków. This will be the eighth office building at B4B, one of the most popular office complexes in Kraków. At the same time, Bonarka for Business launches its new Tenant Relationship Program to serve the needs of their tenants on a higher level. 

The construction of Building H with a gross leasable area of approx. 10,000 sqm will start in summer 2017. This will be the eighth building at Bonarka for Business, situated in Kraków’s Podgórze district. The 8-storey office building will have a facade half made of glass and will offer the tenants 221 parking spaces. At a later stage, Building H may be connected directly to Building I and to Building J through special footbridges. This building has received, for the current stage of the project, the BREEAM certificate at the ‘Very Good’ level. The office building will receive the final certification after completing the construction and interior design for the individual tenants. 
The facility will be equipped with dual power supply, generator, building management system (BMS), access control system, 24-hour security, CCTV, reception, two staircases and four high-speed lifts. The third-generation VRF system for cooling and heating with slot air diffusers along the windows will be installed in the building. As in other facilities, there will be suspended ceilings, raised floors and floor-boxes. 

“Poland has always been one of the most important countries for TriGranit – our dedication towards Poland in the future is also reflected in our aim, to go on with further buildings of B4B in Krakow, to carry out development projects in other Polish cities and to make acquisitions”, said Beata Kokeli, Head of Asset Management & Country Manager for Poland. 
Another project to be implemented by TriGranit in 2017 will involve the development of the area around the existing rain water tank at the Bonarka for Business complex, which will begin in July and finish in October this year. The rain water tank and the area around it will serve as a place for employees’ integration, and as a scene for various types of events. Stairs from concrete blocks, composite terraces and a large amount of greenery will harmonize well with the neighbouring buildings within the B4B complex. With benches and lamps, this will be a perfect place for a break from work or to organize interesting events and concerts. The overall investment volume will reach approx. €300 000. 
TriGranit’s other plans for 2017 include two further office development projects. Millennium Gardens with its 37,000 sqm GLA will be the largest office building development in Budapest that will start in 2017. Lakeside Park II in Bratislava, an 11-storey building with the area of 13,000 sqm is also being launched this year. The company might be able to also launch one more office development in Poland of around 20,000 sqm GLA
