REC is the company behind the Hotspot project, with offices in Berlin, Bochum, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Köln and Bucharest, and one of Hotspot’s first members.

REC stands for Real Estate Consultancy and its international team of engineers, architects and economists offers consulting, project management, design and technical expertise services for real estate investors and developers, covering all stages of a project.
Today we got the chance to talk to Rafat Kamal – Managing Director, REC Immpuls – about the business and how #hotspotworkhub is a real helper in their activity.


What does your company do and what would be some important projects?
REC stands for Real Estate Consultancy. Basically, we offer services for real estate developers at all stages of a project, through consulting, project management, design and TDD technical expertise.
REC Partners GmbH is an international team of engineers, architects, and economists with offices in Berlin, Bochum, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Cologne and, through REC Immpuls, also in Bucharest. For the past 15 years, the company has supported clients across Europe in developing, managing, and improving real estate projects of more than 10 million square meters.

Hotspot Workhub is the pilot project in Bucharest, created with a unique approach to flexible offices/coworking hubs. Hotspot makes a difference with its premium work environment and the contemporary ‘New York’ look. Very high ceilings, huge glass surfaces bringing in plenty of light and the city scopes around, an awarded interior design project.

How does REC feel at Hotspot, and what advantages does working here offer you?
We are among the first members of Hotspot. Every day we enjoy what we actually didn’t have in our old headquarters – the spacious high tech meeting rooms, the quality of the lighting, the audio and video systems and the spectacular atmosphere of the space impacting our team in terms of efficiency, creativity and comfort.

What do you think about Hotspot’s location?
Well it’s quite a location! We are in one of the best built buildings in town and also so close to the main train station, at a 3 minutes walking distance! The team also uses the train to get to the airport, it’s a time saving advantage.

Which are the most useful and pleasant Hotspot facilities for your activity?
For us, definitely useful are the meeting rooms with their interactive screens. We also take breaks and enjoy playing ping pong or having fitness or yoga sessions.

What do clients and partners say when they come to Hotspot for meetings?
They all love it. The professionalism of the execution and the fact that we work in a truly prestigious office are usually the first things making an impress on our visitors.

How would you describe Hotspot in three words?
Elegant, efficient, smart.

REC este compania din spatele proiectului Hotspot, cu birouri in Berlin, Bochum, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Köln si Bucuresti, si unul dintre primii membri.

REC ofera Consultanta Imobiliara, iar echipa sa internationala de ingineri, arhitecti si economisti ofera servicii de consultanta, management de proiect, proiectare si expertiza tehnica pentru investitorii si dezvoltatorii imobiliari, acoperind toate etapele unui proiect.
Astazi am avut ocazia sa vorbim cu Rafat Kamal – Managing Director, REC Immpuls – despre business si despre cum #hotspotworkhub este un adevarat ajutor in activitatea lor.


Cu ce se ocupa compania voastra si care ar fi cateva proiecte importante?
REC inseamna Real Estate Consultancy. Oferim servicii de consultanta, proiectare, management de proiect si expertize tehnice TDD, acoperind practic toate etapele necesare proiectelor dezvoltatorilor imobiliari.
REC Partners GmbH este o echipa internationala de ingineri, arhitecti si economisti cu birouri in Berlin, Bochum, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Köln si, prin REC Immpuls, in Bucuresti. In ultimii 15 ani, compania a sprijinit clienti din toata Europa in dezvoltarea, gestionarea si imbunatatirea unor proiecte imobiliare de peste 10 milioane de metri patrati.

Hotspot Workhub este proiectul pilot prin care s-a urmarit o abordare inedita in crearea unui spatiu premium de birouri flexibile si de coworking. Hotspot se diferentiaza prin mediul de lucru premium si stilul contemporan newyorkez – cu plafoane inalte, mari suprafete vitrate care lasa sa intre lumina si peisajul urban, cu un design interior premiat in industrie.

Cum se simte echipa REC la Hotspot si ce avantaje va ofera lucrul de aici?
Suntem printre primii membri Hotspot. In fiecare zi ne bucuram de ceea ce nu aveam in vechiul nostru sediu – de salile de sedinte high tech, disponibile si incapatoare, de calitatea sistemelelor de iluminat, audio si video si de atmosfera spectaculoasa care impacteaza echipa ca eficienta, creativitate si comfort.

Cum ti se pare locatia in care sa afla Hotspot?
Locatia este realmente una speciala – pe langa ca ne aflam in una din cele mai bine executate cladiri noi din oras, suntem si la 3 minute de mers pe jos de Gara de Nord! Noi folosim trenul si pentru aeroport, ne salveaza mult timp.

Care sunt facilitatile Hotspot care va sunt cele mai utile si placute in activitatea de birou?
Cea mai utila este cu siguranta sala de sedinte cu ecrane interactive, iar printre activitatile de entertainment cele mai placute sunt tenisul de masa si sedintele ocazionale de Fitness/Yoga.

Ce parere au clientii si partenerii de proiect cand vin la Hotspot pentru intalniri?
Executia ireprosabila si faptul ca lucram intr-un spatiu de-a dreptul prestigios ii impresioneaza imediat pe vizitatori.

Cum ai descrie Hotspot in trei cuvinte?
Elegant, practic, destept.
