As a part of the ceremony, some of the projects collaborators signed a protocol with promises to do their best in the project. A local motocross celebrity arrived with the tube containing a USB with information on the project and the ceremony. CEO Søren Mølbak laid the tube and the information in the cornerstone - together with collaborators from DSV. Among others, DSV CFO Jens Lund and PLH partner Steen Enrico Andersen held speeches at the ceremony.

Constructed after the Scandinavian working-culture

The design of the seven-floored building is around an open central atrium with meeting rooms, informal cafe’s, workspaces, and spaces for social interaction. The new office building will be able to accommodate a social working-environment for 1500 employees. This informal and social mind-set is a creation from the Scandinavian working culture. The new DSV headquarter gets a strong identity that supports DSV as a brand and emphasizing their Scandinavian roots.

Warsaw’s new landmark

The light and natural materials dominate the building’s interior. In addition, the design is recognisable with the rounded corners and indistinctive metal façade. Centrally placed in Warsaw, the building will become a new domicile in the city close to a key highway in and out of the city. The life inside the new office building will be visible with the large transparent facades. The large open main entrance has a very inviting appearance that brands and exposes DSV as a workplace with a living work environment, a high level of employee care and a positive work-life balance. Inside, an open workplace design supports different ways of working and sets the framework for a social and living work environment according to the Danish model with close cooperation, flat hierarchy and short chains of command.

Maintained in Scandinavian style, with 22000 m2 of space, I believe it will be a distinctive landmark in Warsaw's Mokotów district, and a very attractive place to work,” tell Thomas Jansson, managing director in DSV, Poland.
