I hereby would like to certify, as the Managing Director of ATTICA DEPARTMENT STORES SA, the excellent cooperation of our company with CORE CONSTRUCTION SA, during the implementation of our new superstore in Thessaloniki.
The construction of «Attica» department store situated in Tsimiski road, begun in May 2014 and was successfully completed within 5 months’ period, opening its gates to the consumers in October 2014, fulfilling precisely the initial financial and time scheduled plan of our company. Its construction was entrusted entirely to CORE CONSTRUCTION COMPANY, as a turnkey project. The company undertook the complete renovation of the existing building into a department store, capable of hosting a huge range of famous brands.
During the whole project’s implementation, all related parties cooperated smoothly and productively in order to achieve a common goal. Designers, project managers, commercial representatives of our company, as well as economic operators maintained an extremely professional level of collaboration with the construction company, stemming with success everyone’s efforts in the long run.
At the same time, the involvement of CORE with public authorities and compliance with all safety rules and legitimacy within the constructing site, have ensured an unencumbered and creative working environment for all employees, during construction.
The priorities we set as a company were fully understood by the engineers in charge of the project, who made every possible effort to achieve impeccable results. Furthermore, the necessary flexibility and adaptability, during construction, were maintained for the
constantly altering needs of the project, in order to integrate into temporal and financial contexts, any unforeseen changes and factors.
The whole project’s particularities with respect to its size, the reinforcement requirements of the existing structural framework, the reuse of functional mechanical equipment, the construction of pilot departments, the implementation of corner stores to the general design consistency and a whole range of various issues, were handled successfully and integrated to the overall project management plan by the Contractor.
Last but not least, I would like to outline the constant updating of all my company’s managers by the engineers, regarding the project issues on a regular basis, and the communication which was maintained accurate and immediate at all levels, facilitating the procedures and simplifying actions, with the view to resolving all matters in question.
To summarize the above-mentioned, I would like to declare my satisfaction from the first collaboration of ATTICA AE with CORE CONSTRUCTION SA, and I am therefore looking forward to a future continuance based on the foundations established during the implementation of our store in Thessaloniki.
