On a European scale, since its foundation GTC has developed 63 business projects with more than 1 100 000 sq. m. area for rent. That experience motivates Advanced Business Centre in Sofia to offer technologies, which will provide opportunity to gather feedback in real time from the tenants, as well as from the technical equipment, embedded in the smart office management system.
Advanced Business Centre is situated at the entrance of the traditional business location for international companies in Bulgaria, Business park Sofia. The location is extremely communicative and provides fast connections through the public subway and transportation.

There a number of measures for improving the energy efficiency and decreasing the cost for exploitation implemented in the Advanced Business Centre buildings. The latest generation of air-conditioning systems with very high efficiency, as well as a new generation of low-energy glasses are used in the design of the buildings. The office space relies mainly on natural lighting. The artificial lighting is of LED type. The latest technologies are implemented to ensure that the Advanced Business Center will be technically effective for many years to come. Through efficient technologies that are implemented in the project, tenants will provide an excellent environment for their employees as well as reduce their utility costs.
„Europe has been the market leader for sustainable construction since long ago, and it is normal for this trend to cover investors in Bulgaria as well. More and more tenants include in their requirements for a new office space the preference for the building to own a "green certificate". The availability of a certificate helps in marketing and subsequently in the filling of office buildings for rent. So, we're proud to have started this certification process because Advance Business Center is in certification with a LEED Gold Green certificate, "commented Thomas Kurzman, CEO of GTC Group. Advanced Business Center's capacity is for over 5,000 IT professionals and high-tech companies.
