The vibrant color scheme of the area is what makes the project so special. One might think that achieving it is difficult, but it’s actually very simple. According to Kadir Bag, Main Coordinating Officer at GC Karkas Monolit, ‘’there’s nothing new in the panels, they are all sandwich panels, but we added the coloring and texture, so it’s a finished product. It’s easier and more practical to finish the product in the factory.’’ What’s more is that by finishing the panels at factory conditions, you can avoid the problems arising from the changing weather. In addition to panels, they are producing elevator shafts, ventilation ducts, staircases, landings and foundation piles for the project.
