2층짜리 건물과 뒤편에는 창고가 있는 애매한 부지에 두 개의 건물이 있었고, 이를 재건축하여 독일의 철강업체 티센크루프(ThyssenKrupp)가 Global Shared Service가 설립되었다. 기존 건물을 부시고, 이렇게 탄생한 이번 건물에는 약 100명의 직원을 수용하고, 최대 235명의 사람들이 이용할 수 있다.
Located in the busy Sertório Avenue the site was already occupied by a two story building on its front and a storage warehouse on the back of the lot. This was the site chosen by the ThyssenKrupp company to establish its GSS division – Global Shared Services – in Latin America. This division, which has offices in cities such as Essen and Bochum in Germany, Gdansk in Poland and Thane in India, aims to standardize and efficiently run administrative functions worldwide in finance and accounting, human resources, IT and real estate management.
With occupation planned in three different phases, the building, which employs today around 100 employees, will be able to absorb up to 235 people. For this, a retrofit design became necessary. After the initial data survey of the buildings, it was proposed the demolition of the existing structure between the two largest volumes. This allowed the creation of a direct connection between the two buildings through a new central construction, which now houses the new main entrance, relocated from the main avenue to the side street, quieter and reserved.
