Kaizen Campus: Main works begin on the new office building for Kaizen Gaming
The move to the new state-of-the-art facilities of the largest GameTech company to be expected in Q2 of 2022
The construction of the project will receive LEED as well as WELL certification
Excavation works have begun on the construction site of the new Kaizen Gaming office building (Stoiximan | Betano), which is expected to be completed by June next year. The design and construction projects of the office building have been undertaken by Dimand, the largest Greek real estate development company.The architectural study envisages the construction of a new, state-of-the-art 3-storey building with 3 wings with a total area of 7,500 sq.m., which will feature a basement that will accommodate parking and other main and auxiliary activities. The shape, the development of outdoor and indoor communication, the bioclimatic characteristics, the choice of materials, and its final image will surely render it a landmark building. The whole complex of covered spaces expands in the inner courtyard which with its configurations becomes a core of social and recreational activities for the employees.
It is worth noting that the design of the building had set as a priority the integration of the basic principles of bioclimatic design and will be certified according to the international certification system for sustainable development LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) at GOLD level, but also with the international WELL standard, which focuses on the conditions that promote human well-being and health within the building environment. Special emphasis has been given to the acoustic study but also to the lighting study in order to achieve the ideal indoor conditions for the employees.
The hybrid employment model that the company already applies will pave the way for the architectural approach and the relevant layout of the spaces, in order to satisfy the maximum efficiency of the human resources working either remotely or from the company’s offices.The creation of the state-of-the-art Kaizen Gaming building forms part of the strategic development plan of the leading GameTech company in Greece and one of the fastest growing in Europe, which continues to invest in actions starring its own people and technology, that is the company’s pillars for its continuous expansion and extroversion. The new offices of Kaizen Gaming will now be able to fully accommodate its largest team, that of Technology – which now suggests one of the largest if not the largest in Greece with over 260 and more Kaizeners keen on producing know-how based on the Agile methodology implemented since 2018.In a statement, Mr. George Daskalakis, CEO and co-founder of Kaizen Gaming noted: “It is another milestone in the history of Kaizen Gaming, which in 2012 started with a small group of 25 people and in a few weeks will surpass them 1,000 Kaizeners, a company that now has the joy of carrying out such an important project in such a difficult period. At Kaizen we feel that especially in this day and age, it is more important than ever to keep dreaming. The investment in our new state-of-the-art offices is moving exactly towards this direction. We want to offer our people the conditions that will allow them to continue to set the bar of this Greek technology project even higher internationally. Kaizen Campus will house our next goals and dreams. It suggests a watershed moment for us and the starting point of exploring additional possibilities, so as to welcome new people in our team, host more talent and passion to better serve our mission, that is to offer excellent services and entertainment products. We all look forward to moving to our new home, from where we will continue our hard work to write the next chapters of Kaizen’s history”.
The CEO of Dimand, Mr. Dimitris Andriopoulos, stressed “We are particularly honored in Kaizen Gaming having placed its confidence in Dimand and the new sustainable building raised in Maroussi. The new building will feature an innovative design and a high level of working environment, in line with the business culture of Kaizen Gaming and will suggest one of the most impressive construction projects of Dimand”.
