Location: Zadar, Croatia
Client: D&Z d.o.o.
Size: 25.000 m2
Scope: We were selected by the D&Z., Zadar to be a BIM Consultants and Developers for BIM model and BIM project management. Our second and the most complex task in this project was to transform preliminary design project into the model and from there together with D&Z as lead architect develop Detailed Design project. The BIM project gradually evolved from firstly creation of BIM model of the existing part of the old factory building originally constructed in 1911.
Some of the challenges solved through our BIM implementation into this project were:
• Managing and development under tight deadlines,
• Lots of changes during the project realization were result of reconciliation of the design with hotel operator’s standards,
• Requirements from HVAC and structural designers needed to be addressed,
• Due to project complexity, it was imperative to detect design oversights.
This way, BIM model saved money and time in the design process as well as in the construction since errors were detected in the early design stages.
About the Project:
The 5-star Hyatt Regency Zadar Maraska is the first hotel in Croatia under the Hyatt brand and is set to open in the spring of 2019. It is located at the former Maraska drinks factory in Zadar and is based on the design of Slovene-Italian architect Boris Podrecca. The design combines both historic and modern architecture. The architectural company D&Z from Zadar is responsible for the architectural project based on the Boris Podrecca’s design.
The 130-luxury room hotel will also have one of the top spa and wellness centers in Croatia as well as swimming pool, bars, conference center and more. Wishing to emphasize the monumentality and beauty of the old Maraska building, the new structure is split into two connected parts: one old and traditional and the other modern and new, thus creating a Mediterranean Tripartite. To achieve total unity with the surrounding park, terraced landscape is a transition between the architectural structure and the surrounding greenery.
British hotel interior design specialists DeSallesFlint will take care of the hotel’s interior design. The project is worth around 100 million euros and is set to be complete in 3 years.
