Apart from being active on the local market, Kapaprojekt has also been present in Russia, Switzerland, France and the countries of the region for a full three decades. This company is known for its top quality in drafting design project documentation for all types of buildings and managing investments from preliminary design to full implementation
At this successful Serbian company based in Niš, which has been pushing the boundaries of contemporary architecture since its inception, they believe that achieving top results requires – apart from amassing a wealth of domestic and international experience –constantly improving projects with the use of new technologies.
Few companies provide the kind of top quality work that you have, for a full three decades. We congratulate you…
– We thank you for recognising us as one of the leading companies in Serbia. Our great experience and dedicated work over the 30 years of our existence has placed us on the map of successful companies in Serbia.
Apart from being present on the Serbian market, you are also active in Russia, Switzerland, France and the countries of the region. You have amassed many significant buildings constructed for major investors, and we’re sure there are some that represent highlights and stand out…
– We were already working for the Russian market a lot back in the 1990s and 2000s. We had a bureau in Moscow and worked with the biggest companies on the market. I would highlight one of the most significant projects: the Gazprom administration building, covering almost 80,000m². We learnt a lot from that and gained significant references. Among the more recent projects, I would single out Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, for client Vinci Terna. We’ve been working on this project for three years and have been finishing the work in recent months.
Architecture has become a multidisciplinary field, because an architect must be familiar with new technological processes of construction, on the one hand, and with software, on the other
Airports are a complex discipline, and that is particularly so with this one, where reconstructions and extensions were carried out, and everything was unified to form a new, functional whole. It was a massive challenge to coordinate, in an architectural and constructional sense, with the construction of new phases and providing for the smooth functioning of the airport during the period of the project’s implementation.
How are the boundaries of contemporary architecture shifting?
– In its enduring development to date, the company has monitored emerging new technologies, the development of modern construction materials and building systems. This is a constant process of educating designers, who must monitor and follow new trends and technological innovations, in the form of system solutions, as well as the materialisation of facilities and the need for new, innovative and functional solutions. We can note that the needs and demands of the clients themselves constantly change in line with the development of technology globally.
Architecture has become a multidisciplinary field, because an architect must be familiar with new technological processes of construction, on the one hand, and with software, on the other. When it comes to tools for project design, here also things have changed drastically: from rapidograph pens and tracing paper, via computer-based work in, for example. the AutoCAD program, which is the most commonly represented tool, to the application of BIM technology in design. I must mention that all those BIM technologies in architecture and construction, which we have been applying for several years already, are just tools that enable us to create higher quality project and technical documentation. Given that behind all technical tools stands just a man-engineer-designer, we try to educate our employees in every sense.
