Founded in 2005, RC Europe is a Czech investor and developer specializing in development, management and consultancy in retail, office and residential properties active in Czech Republic, Romania, Serbia and Croatia. What better way to celebrate 15 years then announcing the most extensive project ever in the group’s history – Arc, a high class office building that will be built in the heart of Bucharest?

“Our history started in the Czech Republic back in 2005, when Reinvest Corporation was established in Brno. From the beginning, our main objective was creating important real estate projects that could satisfy our client’s needs but also the communities’ as well. Since then, we have been growing and improving so that we can offer the best solutions for creating successful projects”, remembers Andrei Rati, Country Manager  RC Europe in Romania.

Now, the company is striving for the greatest project: the largest office building in the portfolio, and the biggest and most extensive project ever in the group’s history – that is Arc, a high class office building that will be built in the heart of Bucharest. Excellent location on the corner of Calea Giulesti and Pasajul Basarab streets with easy access from all directions, contemporary design, effective and comfortable working environment. All this on an area of over 30,000 sqm. The building will be finished in 2024.

Making a difference

The company has developed and has under management several office buildings, retail parks, residential buildings and supermarket chains.  RC Europe specializes in the development of business, retail, and supermarket projects. Its clients include Tesco, Penny Market, Billa, Lidl, PROFI, Kaufland, Tesco, OBI, OKAY, Deichmann, CCC, PEPCO, Gate, JYSK, Pompo, and Sportissimo. In Romania, RC Europe has already completed a series of three NEST retail park projects: approximately 6,500 sq m GLA in Oradea,  over 12,000 sq m in Miercurea Ciuc and 4,000 sq m GLA in Dorohoi, and owns five office buildings: two in Pitesti, and the rest in Craiova, Drobeta and Slatina, totalizing over 18,000 sq m GLA. The company has also in pipeline a new retail park in Sighisoara and other regional cities.

The Arc, a signature project

The ARC is a class 10-story A office building that will be located at 27 – 29 Soseaua Orhideelor in Bucharest. The ARC’s proposed site is in an area which is currently considered a growing “Urban Hub”, com­bining public transport, proximity to commercial facilities, technical universities and campus, with the multiple facilities featuring open green space and limited congestion from automotive traffic.

The ARC’s has been designed to be a signature building with simple and timeless design located on a highly visible site from a central bridge overpass. The silhouette of ARC features a clean cut volume which provides a unique identity and personalizes the entire site. The “L” shape of the building generates an urban courtyard sepa­rated from street noise. The building silhouette is also accentuated by two withdrawn levels at the top which are slightly rotated from the main façade plan.  In addition to its eye-catching design, The ARC’s space program fea­tures 12 above ground levels as well as two underground mechani­cal, parking and storage levels. The ARC’s lobby will not only serve as the main entrance for the building but also provide space for retail and building administrative offices. Typical office floors will be based on a central structural core with office spaces surrounding that structure. This design will allow for ample flexibility in space layout for proposed tenants.

“We construct office buildings that become a second home to employees, a place where they feel happy to work in. Apart from the construction of new buildings, we can also arrange the purchase and renovation of older ones. Whether we construct a new building or renovate an older one, we don’t underestimate any detail. From the flrst steps, like finding the right spot and carrying out feasibility studies, right through to purchasing the plot, obtaining planning permission and preparing all the necessary documents”, states Andrei Rati, Country Manager  RC Europe in Romania.

Extensive expertise

“But construction isn’t all we do. We work in some of the office buildings from our portfolio and we rent the rest of the space which means we take care of complete building management including administration and maintenance. We also help our tenants with the interior design of their offices to reflect the company culture and image. We have built a wide range of administrative buildings over the last ten years. We are most proud of the modem office buildings in Romanian cities Pitesti and Craiova which belong to the most beautiful “green” buildings ranking in the country. Office buildings in our possession located in city centers are managed under the brand Central. Now we focus on building retail parks under our own brand Nest. Completed retails parks can be found for example in Dorohoi, Miercurea Ciuc, Oradea – Romania; Kraljevo – Serbia or Vyskov in the Czech Republic. We are also planning a number of new retail parks in the countries we operate. Apart from the retail parks, you can visit a great number of stores in Europe that were built under our management. We have developed more than 60 Penny Market stores abroad and we collaborate with Lidl, Billa, Profi and Kaufland”, concludes Andrei Rati.

More potential

Apart from business and office buildings, RC Europe also want to focus more on the construction and management of apartment buildings and complexes. A pilot project in this area is the RC Apartments in the center of Brno. Other buildings are at an advanced stage of development. RC Apartments in Brno consist of two apartment buildings offering 67 apartments on 6 floors. Both buildings were fully renovated and modernized and the 5th and 6th floors are newly built. The apartment complex is managed by our company and the apartments are designated for both short-term and long-term rentals. The whole project was implemented with the highest emphasis on comfort and safety of the tenants. Therefore, the indoor area also contains an outdoor relaxation area with seating and green vegetation. The tenants can also use a parking lot monitored by a camera system.

The RC Europe Group is very intensively involved in energetic projects, both from the point of view of an expert consultant and an investor, who is actively seeking opportunities for the new decentralized energy industry with a high share of renewable resources. In the area of ​​energetic services, we provide consultancy in the field of developing and maintaining energy sources and networks at all levels – from very high voltage to low voltage levels. We offer our clients a comprehensive package of technical and engineering services focused on project analysis and quality management in the preparation and implementation of investment plans, operation and maintenance. As part of our advisory services, we also provide services in the field of building passports and collection of analytical and topographic data, which are a prerequisite for efficient and economical management of assets. We know from our experiences that the accuracy of this kind of data is absolutely essential for effective financial planning and evaluation, therefore our outputs are prepared with maximum attention to every detail.
