KAUNO DOKAS – Eco-friendly business center using unitized glass facades

Green building philosophy and eco-friendly working area, this is what Kauno Dokas symbolize with its spectacular view in front of the river bank of Neris. The building covered by glazed bespoke facades is Kaunas first and, so far, only Class A+ business center.  WICONA has supplied both facades, windows and doors.

Kauno Dokas is located close to the old town in Kaunas by the river bank of Neris. This location, with lower intensity traffic, is the area of the protected EU ecological network "Nature 2000". For the first time in the country, just renewable geothermal energy is used to cover all the heating needs and the building is the first to use river water to cool an entire business center.


Glass facades creates reflection of nature
Kauno Dokas covers 11.000m2 that includes three harmoniously buildings with separate entrances. The first part was completed in 2018 (produced and installed by "Staticus" UAB) and the second part in 2019 (produced and installed by "Glasma Service" UAB). The facade of Kauno Dokas appears like a reflection of the nature and the river waves.

WICONA unitized glass facade WICTEC EL60 creates a feeling of lightness both exterior and interior. Blue-green pre-patinated copper portals highlight the entrances and creates a strong, statement etched onto the glazed facades. The entrance, covered by glass facades of WICTEC 50, reflects the rhythm of the river and its construction resemble of the waves in the water. This lifts the building into a modern architecture symbol of green building philosophy.

Eco-friendly working environment
Kauno Dokas has separated ventilation systems for offices, conference rooms and restaurants. This leads to fresh air with high quality that guarantee the employees a good and creative working environment. It is also very local eco-friendly as Neris water is used for the air condition in the building.

Natural sunlight reaching almost all working places as well as windows are openable. Furthermore, the business center offers an electric car charging station and flexible mobile working areas outdoors. The entire project concept is focused on a very healthy and motivating working environment.
