- 35 000 m²
- General contractor
In consideration of the geographic location of the complex, advanced technologies and materials were used to ensure the effective functioning of the building in the difficult climatic conditions of the Far North.
It was not a simple job to work on this property, as reconstruction work is always more complicated than building from scratch. The Arctic had low ceilings and small rooms which we had to transform in order to make them correspond with new standards
One of the key features of the project was the need to preserve the building’s architecture. RD Construction fully rebuilt the façade and replaced all building engineering systems while preserving the historical appearance of the building.
The official opening ceremony of the Arctic was attended by a number of special guests, including Mayor of Murmansk Alexei Veller.
We believe that in the near future the hotel will reach an occupancy level of 60-65%. However, most revenues will be generated by the lease of offices. Right now 34% of the office premises, which range from 23 to 165 square meters, have already been leased to various companies
