Firms leave Apollo business centre because of building’s stability

The latest stress analysis report on the building says that it is overburdened by 10-50 percent in some parts. In one place however the burden reaches 250 percent of the allowed weight, according to private broadcaster TV Markíza.

“Representatives of the owner are engaged in discussions with particular renters,” a spokesperson of BBC1 owner Michal Donath, said, as quoted by the SITA newswire.  “Secure works related to construction problems in some building’s parts should be ended in several months.”

The owner informed its renters about the building's current situation and some of them decided to leave, according to Donath.
