— car park capacity 259,

— primary energy consumption levels compliant with nearly zero-energy building standards Directive 2018/844EU (calculations in accordance with ISO 52000),

— 25 % of the building's primary energy consumption produced on site.

The GCO shall be required to take over the BIM model that will be provided by EIB at the beginning of the Contract. GCO shall then be required to complete the BIM Model during the construction process and to use it to produce the as-built documentation.
