Skyscraper is one of the most modern office buildings in Europe. Most installations are underground, including a huge generator set, thanks to which, in the event of a breakdown in the city, WFC is able to generate energy for the entire building. There is also a water treatment point here. In addition, each office is air-conditioned and equipped with satellite links and the Internet.
Fire protection is at the highest level. In the basement there are five water tanks with a capacity of 600,000 liters. In addition, smoke detectors are installed throughout the building.
Parking for 337 cars occupies six floors.
Above the car park there is a bar, a health club, a postal service, a florist and a travel agency. On the remaining floors there are halls for trade and offices.
The building has 33 floors, including occupied 31.
A special transport helicopter was needed to assemble a 16-meter-long, top-mounted spire.
Efficient communication in the office building allows 16 lifts.
The undercut arch 130 meters high fits perfectly with the rest of the skyscraper. The shape of the building and its color, do not arouse controversy and fit well with the panorama of Warsaw.
