The Canadian company Magna Seating, one of the largest automotive suppliers globally, has built a production facility in Aleksinac. The total area (ground floor, gallery, and first floor) with auxiliary facilities is 8,400.59 square metres. The height of the cornice is 12.20 metres.

Oktopaz led construction supervision on this project, developed a safety plan, and provided health & safety coordination. Construction supervision included the areas of architecture, building structures and materials, energy efficiency, fire safety, sprinkler, water & sewerage, electrical, and thermo-technical building services. Furthermore, Oktopaz has provided its reputable client with a range of services within the project management scope.

Material production and packaging are the primary functions of the facility. The other part of the building is the administration, with offices, changing rooms for workers and a canteen with a restaurant and kitchen.

The prefabricated frame construction of the building consists of reinforced concrete pads, columns, and prestressed elements (mezzanine beams, hollow slabs, and roof rafters). The roof covering is trapezoidal sheet metal with layers of thermal and waterproofing. The foundation structure consists of monolithic footings, strip foundations underneath reinforced concrete walls, and prefabricated parapet reinforced concrete foundation beams around the perimeter of the building. The slope of the roof is 2%.

There are also a porter’s lodge, a pumping station, and a sprinkler tank.

Internal roads and parking interconnect all facilities. There are ample parking spaces available for cars and trucks, as well as a bus stop.

The landscaping achieves the planned percentage of green areas.

Water retention collects stormwater from the roof and purified stormwater from the roads.
