OfficeHaus marked a major milestone in its construction with a topping-out ceremony on August 30th, 2022. A modernist office building that’s on a mission to revolutionize the office market, OfficeHaus is nearing completion and will soon open its doors to Saigon’s new generation of workforce.
Attending the topping out ceremony are key partners of OfficeHaus: Gamuda Land - one of the region’s most established land owners and real estate developers, COFICO - the general contractor, Artelia Vietnam - which supervised the whole construction process, Korn Architects - the architectural design firm behind OfficeHaus’ seamless Bauhaus-inspired minimalist layout, and all partners that made significant contributions.
COFICO, one of Vietnam’s most respected construction companies was retained by OfficeHaus to construct the office building in accordance with the former’s vision. With COFICO’s indisputable reputation and experience, OfficeHaus has managed to follow a tight construction schedule amidst COVID-19 lockdowns, international territorial disputes that affected logistics gas and material prices.
Oliver Brazier, Director of OfficeHaus, said, “This topping out ceremony is one of the final steps before OfficeHaus officially begins operations. We are proud to have come this far on schedule despite the past challenges such as COVID lockdowns. We are proud to see this super-efficient office building finally taking shape with all our partners’ effort and hard work. Trusting COFICO to build OfficeHaus from the ground up was the right decision and in a few months, we’ll be ready to welcome our tenants and let them experience the quality service of OfficeHaus.”
Le Dang Vinh, General Director of COFICO, said, “OfficeHaus has provided us with room to decide on many issues within our authority. There were a lot of factors that needed to be considered during the construction; we are just happy that we were given full trust. Our motto has always been servicing clients to the best of our ability, providing quality and saving cost for both the investor and COFICO. We look forward to seeing it in operation and knowing we made an impact on Vietnam’s new generation of workers.”
OfficeHaus has been creating a buzz since it started site clearance works in November 2020, propelling excitement for one of the city’s most anticipated real estate projects. The premium office building is part of a world-class 82-hectare development integrating residential, commercial, and public amenities within Celadon City in the heart of Tan Phu District.
The 23,000-sqm seven-story office building offers >2,500 square meters of floor plates, currently the largest in the market, and a future-proof design centered on functionality, safety, and uncompromised work-life balance. The whole building blends technological advancements with minimalist super-efficient floor plans, following Bauhaus’ concept of ‘form follows function.’ Featuring contactless lifts, hands-free access to shared spaces, and a smart building management system, OfficeHaus is proud to lead Vietnam’s office revolution post-pandemic.
With its promise to promote sustainability, OfficeHaus also applied its LEED Gold certification throughout the entire process of designing and construction. An integrated rooftop solar power system is also part of OfficeHaus’ bigger mission to maintain all of its operations in the most environmentally-beneficial ways.
Axel Korn, the founder of Korn Architects, said, "The design for the Officehaus appears straightforward with clear lines. At a second glance it reveals a smart internal organization of functions which lead to efficiency and convenience for the future tenants. This reflects the values of the “Neues Bauen” promoted by the Bauhaus in Germany. With its attention to detail the Officehaus stands out as new landmark for office buildings in Vietnam.”
