Expected commencement date of construction works is October 2020th

Brief description of the works:

The designed building site is on the Land Registry Plot 3660/8, Land Registry Municipality Novi Sad II, which is, in accordance with the Detailed Regulation Plan for the University Complex in Novi Sad, intended for the construction of a scientific institute.

The respective site, measuring 1 357 m2, is located between the student playground sports grounds, Suncani kej (Sunny Quay) and the faculty of sciences greenhouse building.

The site has an irregular quadrangle shape and the terrain is relatively flat, with a slight northeast to southwest sloping.

The footprint of the designed building coincides with the outline and dimensions of the site, i.e., the site occupancy index is 100 % and the regulation lines coincide with the building lines.

The number of floors is: Crawl Space Floor + G + M + 2 in the section of the site in the 50 m embankment zone or LG + G + M + 4 in the section outside the embankment zone.

The building GDA (gross development area) is 6 741.69 m2.

The designed ground floor baseline level (± 0.00 m) is 1.05 m higher than the public area from which the building is accessed.

The main pedestrian access to the building is from Dr Zoran Djindjic Street. The main entrance is located at the northern corner of the building and it is accessed through a covered ground floor extension piazza terrace constructed within the boundaries of the site.

The driveway access is from Dr Zoran Djindjic Street, as well as via the pedestrian and traffic routes from the northwest and southwest side of the building, foreseen by detailed regulation plan for the University Complex in Novi Sad.

The covered parking area on the ground floor of the building has 11 parking spaces and several separate segment doors, which would be installed between the ground floor pillars to allow the parking area to be closed off and controlled.

The baseline level of the technical water pilot plant (TKV) and the supporting facilities adjacent to the pilot plant is lowered relative to the ground level and it is - 1.02 m.

The pilot plant and the covered parking area are accessed directly from the pedestrian and traffic routes foreseen by the detailed regulation plan for the University Complex in Novi Sad, along the southwest, west and northwest site boundaries.

In terms of its functional organisation, the main conceptual building design is driven by the complex programme and the irregular site geometry. The designed facade features require natural light and/or ventilation, while in the central part of the building, the design foresees facilities that, by their function, may not or should not have natural light and ventilation and artificially illuminated and ventilated utility rooms.

The part of the building that requires special conditions in terms of measures preventing unwanted transmission of vibrations during technical operations is separated into a separate compartment space, with a separate waffle foundation slab, resting on the main raft foundation on special wear plates. This structure within the building extends from the crawl space floor all the way to the second-floor ceiling and it is separated from the other building elements by dilatation. This part of the building has its own independent supporting walls and other structural elements and it is described in more detail in the structural engineering design.

The facilities foreseen in the building design include: laboratories, clean rooms, workstations for employees, workstations for external users, lecture halls, a canteen with ancillary rooms, restrooms, utility rooms, technical rooms, required vertical and horizontal communication facilities and a covered parking area.

The covered parking area would have 11 parking spaces and several separate segment doors, installed between the ground floor structure pillars.

The baseline level of the pilot plant and the supporting facilities adjacent to the pilot plant is lowered relative to the ground floor level, and it is -1.02 m. The pilot plant and the covered parking area can be accessed directly from the pedestrian and traffic routes foreseen by detailed regulation plan for the University Complex in Novi Sad, along the southwest, west and northwest site boundaries.

The designed main building entrance is at the northern corner of the site and it is extended relative to the regulation line of the upper floors to provide for a two-level covered terrace. The entrance is marked by a bay window, at the level of the mezzanine, first and second floors. The pedestrian piazza terrace is not accessible by vehicles from the access road and it leads through a wide staircase and a ramp for persons with disabilities to a higher level — the entrance porch leading to the main lobby on the ground floor. The main lobby, extending to the roof of the building, would have a reception desk and a representative staircase leading to the second floor.

A part of the communications in the lobby and in the mezzanine would be gallery type.

From the main lobby, there would be two corridors — one leading to the lecture rooms along the southeast facade, ending at the side entrance and the second one leading to the canteen and the kitchen area along the northwest facade, ending at the garage entrance. This corridor also leads to the vertical communications core. The core houses a fire escape staircase, a passenger lift, capacity 1t and a freight service lift, capacity 2t, which operate from the basement/lower ground to the IV floor. The fire escape staircase leads to the roof of the higher part of the building. A small lift, capacity 100 kg, for carrying laboratory equipment, is also foreseen in the building.

The lifts are described in more detail in the lift design.

The staircase descends to the lower ground level, which houses the technical rooms, a number of laboratories and the storage rooms. From this area, it is possible to access the crawl space floor, which is located below the entrance porch foundation slab and which is used for the horizontal distribution of the various installations and their controls. The crawl space is 1.49 m high and it is not included in the building GDA.

The utility rooms are foreseen to be in the central part of the building and on all lower floors, i.e., from the ground floor to the second floor.

The mezzanine is accessed by the main staircase from the ground floor lobby, by lift or by fire escape staircase.

On the mezzanine floor, above the entrance piazza terrace, there would be a corner space with stands, which is an integral part of the main lobby and in front of which there would be a lobby with a guest wardrobe. Along the northwest facade, there would be an open space work area for postgraduate students, while along the southeast facade, there would be the accelerator area — a workstation intended for external users.

The central part of the building is intended for laboratories.

At this level, there would also be technical rooms for installations and equipment and the server room.

According to the design, on the first and second floors, along the facade, there would be laboratories and workstations for researchers (offices). At these levels, the main staircase connecting to the lobby is separated from the lower floors by glass partitions with access control option, ensuring building access control and restriction for guests (unemployed persons). The main lobby receives additional daylight through a glass lantern designed in the second-floor attic panel.

On the first floor of the building, the design foresees clean room area, with a total area of approximately 100 m2. The areas protected from the vibrations from the adjacent parts of the building or from the outside are located one below another, starting from the crawl space floor.

On the third floor, the design foresees laboratories, work area for researchers and administration, while the fourth floor would house exclusively management and administration offices.
