For the first time in the Czech Republic, Sipral used the Fenster Werner system of structural glazing; the Hueck KF 60 2.1 system was applied in the ancillary structures, which complement the ceramic facade cladding with their glazed surfaces. The building received honorable mention as a substantial architectonic improvement of a prefabricated building (with regard to high quality of craftsmanship and creation of a good working environment) during the international building fair For Arch 1994. Sipral supplied the complete glazed structures, and also manufactured all separating interior glass structures, the automatic door systems, and fire-tested glazed structures. The Hueck A 72 system was applied in the interiors, while ABS supplied the fire-rated structures. In this building, modern materials and technology were combined with classic ones, and further complemented with the artwork of Borek Sipek, an architect and artist.
