Georgy Basharin, project manager of Gazprom Export headquarters says:
Gazprom Export — incredibly interesting project. Building in Italian palazzo style located in city center and surrounded by masterpieces of architecture.
We applied various engineering practices that allowed us to implement most challenging ideas like installation of suspended stairs in atrium at a height of 6 floors.
Professional international team gathered on this project. Fit Out contractor was RDCM. We used to work together on other projects in Moscow like Raiffeisen headquarters and Office center «Novatek».
For the first time we cooperated with MCM Architecture, but very soon realized that we push same ideas in managing projects. Together we integrated architectural design developed by London office of IOR UK.
Reception desks, top tables and credenzas created using a «liquid metal technology». In a same way we imitated antique bronze.
We created two types of acoustic panels: fabric and perforated veneer panels for meeting rooms, cinema and conference rooms.
1st and 2nd floor decorated with wainscot made of Alpi veneer (American nut)
4-6th floors — working areas with executive suite, wardrobe and kitchen completely furnished by us.
7th floor occupied by fully furnished boardroom decorated with light gray veneer.
Our company produced interior doors using plastics, nut and oak veneer. All doors are fire-proof according to EI30 standards.
Doors for meeting rooms where commercial secrets or National Security Information could be discussed safely protected with sound proof doors.
