Gorod Stolits (Capital City)
The project created by American project bureau NBBJ includes 2 towers named after the two Russian capitals - Moscow and St. Petersburg, 73 and 62 storeys height correspondingly. Moscow tower is already considered to be the tallest building in Europe.
Architect solution of the complex is realized in last century Russian constructivism style. Square-cut towers have shifts around the centre line at the technical floors. Geometry the towers provides construction resistance and allows to create spacious apartments with panoramic windows. The buildings include apartments (101,440 square meters), offices (72,315 square meters), 10,000 square meters of shopping areas located in two levels, parking areas and sports facilities.
European level of engineering solutions creats the feeling of absolute comfort and security. Heat supply is performed through the town mains with connection by the independent scheme through a heating unit. The heating system is two-pipe with horizontal arrangement from central riser. Water supply system provides water from the purification plant. There is a system of water preparation in a special plate-type heat exchanger provided for hot water supply system. The construction of building envisages house-hold and production sewer and groundwater drainage, indoor downpipe for rain and defrost waters disposal from the roofing. The complex features Uponor PEX plumbing and heating, using PPSU connections, which is one of the first experiences of using plastic fittings in such tall buildings.
Varicool heating and cooling panels were installed to the meeting room's ceiling. The new hydronic system replaced the old fan coil unit system. Varicool system is a radiant heating and cooling system. The panels do not heat or cool the indoor air directly but the surfaces what radiant covers.
La dalle active Uponor est intégrée depuis 2017 dans l’immeuble Delta Green, bâtiment tertiaire de 4600m2 comprenant 4 niveaux. Celui-ci est le premier bâtiment de la région tout à fait autonome en énergie.
Le bâtiment d’enseignement supérieur et de recherche pour l’Institut Mines-Télécom intègre un système de dalle active sur une surface de 40 000 m2. Le bâtiment économe en énergie accueillera une gamme variée d’activités propres à l’Institut Mines - Télécom : formations, recherches, transfert et innovation.
Thermal concrete core activation with Uponor Contec provides economical, energy-efficient and sustainable building temperature control in the new landmark Adlershof Science and Technology Centre.
A hygienically optimal drinking water installation was integrated into the new office complex – thanks to Uni Pipe PLUS within a very short time.

Uponor were nominated as the sole supplier for radiant heating systems for the Sunesis Schools schemes, with Main Contractor Willmott Dixon. Sunesis is a Joint Venture between Scape and Willmott Dixon, built on the combined experience of public sector know-how and private expertise. They are the market leader in delivering pre-designed buildings across a range of market sectors. Every design has a defined layout, specification, fixed cost and timescale to construct. The full benefits of a full BIM model are also utilised.
