  • CORPORaTE CaMPUSOMNILOGIC Established in November 1992 as a private company, with a subscribed capital of more than $500,000, Omnilogic set its sights on the dominant position on the Romanian IT&C market from the very beginning. In the last 16 years, the company has won and maintained the reputation of being the undisputed market leader. The company’s success is primarily due to its realistic business vision of adapting perpetually to the challenges of an industry where fundamental technology changes are the only certain thing. Omnilogic realized that its growth rate required a matching business infrastructure development so that the company’s operations could run smoothly and cost-effectively. Consequently, Omnilogic decided that it must move to new headquarters tailored to its particular business needs, which could incorporate all the benefits of technology and innovation in a signature property of the highest standards. In order to successfully complete this task, Omnilogic partnered with Global Vision in March 2007, a company which possesses the technical expertise and credibility to undertake such a complex project. Global Vision’s involvement covered property development, construction project management, building construction & civil engineering, as well as property management. Global Vision began the project with three essential stages: land development (market research, site selection, feasibility studies, land acquisition, infrastructure & utilities), development (entitlements), and building development (project design). Global Vision then took responsibility for the construction and management process, which included activities such as: structure execution, building and installation construction, intelligent business technology systems, landscape architecture (interior & exterior gardens), as well as on-site civil engineering (roads, alleys, parking lots). Global Vision also won the property management contract for the complex, which includes activities of facility and IT & administration management. The contract signed in March 2011 covers the next five years. 16 months after closing the deal, Global Vision finalized Omnilogic Corporate Campus, a project that required a €25,000,000 investment, with a total GLA of 25,000 sqm and includes: two office buildings of 12,000 sqm; a warehouse of 3,000 sqm; a datacenter building of 2,000 sqm, which is accredited by BSI (British Standard Institute) with ISO 27000; and finally an 8,000 sqm parking lot.38 global vision

  • BOB TOWER Upground was one of the first real estate developers on the market and has finalized some of the most impressive office and residential buildings in Romania. Three of these are considered the architectural and building construction milestones of the past two decades: BOB Tower, BOC Tower, and Upground Residential. Upground foresaw an increasing need for office space in this consistently growing region, despite the possible economic crisis. However, it also realized that companies need intelligent office buildings and that they will not rent just any office space, especially if it does not rigorously comply with technological standards, or fulfill business needs. Consequently, Upground decided to close a deal for property development, project design, project management, technological installations and interior architecture with a company that understands the big picture and could handle the responsibility of developing the biggest office building in Romania at the time. In July 2007, Global Vision was selected as General Contractor for BOB Tower, and finished construction in August 2008 after a focused effort of 13 months. In August 2010, Global Vision was appointed Property Manager for BOB Tower for a 5-year period. BOB Tower is currently the second largest office building in Romania and benefits from an outstanding location in one of the most coveted areas of Bucharest: the northern part of the city, between the most beautiful lakes of the area. More conveniently, this area is home to the most elegant residential villages as well as the busiest corporate HQs in the city. Its grandeur and sleek yet friendly design, together with the thousands of young rising managers, make BOB Tower one of busiest and beautiful landmarks of corporate Bucharest. BOB Tower comprises 50,000 sqm of office space and 17,000 sqm of developed land, totaling an investment of €50,000,000 – out of which Global Vision’s contract value amounts to €20,000,000.46 global vision

  • BOC TOWER Upground was one of the first real estate developers on the market and has finalized some of the most impressive office and residential buildings in Romania. Three of these are considered the architectural and building construction milestones of the past two decades: BOB Tower, BOC Tower, and Upground Residential. Upground’s strategic vision of the office building business was proving successful; BOB Tower was built, leased and flourishing. However, the need for intelligent built office space still remained high, so Upground decided to seize the next opportunity and build the biggest and the most technologically advanced office building in Romania. In order to be consistent with the USP, Upground needed to hire a company with proven expertise in office building construction. Therefore, when it was time to make a decision, Upground knew that the only logical choice was Global Vision. A €10,000,000 contract was signed and Global Vision took over the implementation of all installations and building technology. BOC Tower is the largest office building in Romania to date. Rising seven floors high, with three levels of underground parking and a total area of 70,000 sqm. It is located in the most coveted office location in Bucharest and provides world-class services to the corporate tenants occupying the 50,000 sqm of premium office space. Simply put, it re-defines the standards of the corporate work environment. The magnificent ground floor architecture accentuates the building’s beauty, while restaurants and coffee shops facilitate the fast-paced environment. A banking branch located conveniently in the building complements the financial needs of its corporate residents even further. The project totaled a €110,000,000 investment and was executed in 18 months. In August 2010, Global Vision was appointed Property Manager for BOC Tower for a 5-year period.50 global vision

Once they singled out Romania as one of the most promising markets, the company planned to build a mall in Bucharest, which they acknowledged as the most dynamic Romanian city.

In December 2005, Global Vision finalized the contract with City Mall by delivering a turn-key project for IT&C networks, security systems, access control, fire security, power and power back-up systems.

G4S entered the Romanian market in 2004 through a merger with a well- known local security company and the group now operates three distinct divisions: Cash Services, Security Services and Security Systems. The group intended to consolidate its position in the regional cash processing market, so that it could serve Eastern and Central European based clients. To achieve this goal, G4S needed to build a campus containing a cash processing center, a warehouse and an office building. However, G4S could not complete the task by hiring a general contractor. Instead, it needed a real estate developer with global understanding and expertise, who grasps the big picture and makes sure all elements are taken into account and acted upon.
