The interior of the building will be completely renovated, but the interior will still be adorned with its monumentality and industrial style.
BELGRADE - Reconstruction of the BIGZ building has entered the preparatory phase, and in the next year this monumental building will be transformed into a multifunctional business space of class A.
With its size and complexity, it represents one of the largest projects for the reconstruction of the building under the protection of the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments of the City of Belgrade, which has been implemented in our area so far.
The former largest printing house in the Balkans, BIGZ, has become the property of the company "Marera Real Estate", which together with the partner company "Aleksandar gradnja" is investing in the renovation and conversion of the facility worth 20 million euros, Beobuild reported.
Extensive reconstruction works have recently begun with initial works on clearing the terrain, and the structure of the building is currently being examined, followed by the start of construction works. The interior of the building will be completely renovated, but the interior will still be adorned with its monumentality and industrial style.
The ambience will be especially enriched with details and materials that will contribute to the warmth of the space. As for the exterior, since it is a cultural asset (building under the protection of the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments of Belgrade), revitalization of the existing facade is planned, with a change of complete carpentry and installation of new windows with triple glass that will improve sound and thermal insulation .
Linear exterior lighting will also be installed on the facade, in order to emphasize the contours of the building. The facility will be equipped with a completely new heating and cooling system.
Moving into the reconstructed BIGZ building is expected in January 2023.
