Right now, 207 people work for our R&D Center, which also is equipped with a testing center. The 2nd basement floor has shared spaces open to all workers and designed for all needs: cafeteria, dining and meeting rooms, education halls, a pool for visitors from other buildings, offices, managerial offices, security, a hair-dresser, doctor, and psychologist rooms. The developed 3rd and 4th basement floors contain 140-vehicle parking and rooms containing the mechanical and electrical infrastructure for the building.
The complete system has been planned totally with back-up parts, so that no part be responsible for failure in the building's energy system. The whole infrastructure and systems use a total 18 million dollar budget. Effort was made to ensure a well-lit working environment in areas open to sunlight. The working area was designed with a 3.1 meter high well-lit working environment. The earthquake-resistant building was built by Sur Yapı, and received top marks from an Istanbul Technical University earthquake-resistance survey.
