Management systems

ISO 9001 quality management system certification

The BTC company has gained the ISO 1998 Quality Management System certification in 1998. The certification marked an important moment in the successful transformation, restructuring and business growth in the 1990 to 1997 period when the company transformed from a public warehouse company into a modern European business and commercial centre.

The quality system was the first step towards raising the quality of operations, rationalisation and optimisation. Quality standards are implemented and amended in all current and new operations that the company undertakes.

The quality system is more than just a formal description of the quality assurance system that we employ, it embodies a value that each and every person in the company supports and observes and which is the starting point for excellence in business that we all work towards. Our quality assurance system assures all business partners and visitors a friendlier BTC, better, faster and higher quality services, leading to long term business relationships built on trust.

Quality management system includes processes (business pillars) Real estate management (BTC Cities), Logistics services management (Logistics) and Digital content and solutions management (IT and digitization).

ISO 14001 environment management system certification

BTC City is becoming a lively city of attractive architecture, modern infrastructure and landscaped environment. The BTC company is well aware of the importance of careful environmental management. It therefore places special emphasis on the treatment of waste, water and air, efficient use of energy and the safety of visitors and property.

The company places special emphasis on the treatment of waste, packaging, protection of water and air and rational energy consumption. In 2006 BTC acquired the ISO 14001 Environment Management System Certification in the field of property management in the BTC City Ljubljana area and the Atlantis water park. In 2009 the certification was expanded to include logistics. BTC thus acquired an internationally recognised approach to property management and showed its responsible attitude towards the environment.

Environment management system includes processes (business pillars) Real estate management (BTC Cities), Logistics services management (Logistics) and Sustainable content management (Mission: Green).

ISO 50001 Energy management system certification

In June of 2012 BTC acquired the ISO 50001 Energy Management System Certification. The certificate is the culmination of deliberate work and activities in the field of sustainable development. A considerable part of these efforts are aimed at permanent improvement of energy efficiency and increasing energy savings in order to decrease negative impacts on the environment.

Energy management system includes processes (business pillars) Real estate management (BTC Cities), Logistics services management (Logistics) and Sustainable content management (Mission: Green).

ISO 55001 asset management system certification

BTC is the first company in Slovenia to receive the ISO 55001 Asset Management System Certification. The certificate was awarded for quality in the management of properties and business partner assets by the Slovenian Institute of Quality and Metrology (SIQ) following a successful audit of the BTC PROP business unit. BTC is among the first recipients of these certificates that are awarded by IQNet – an international network of partner certification bodies that assess management systems. The organisation issues a quarter of the world’s annual management system certifications.

Asset management system includes Real estate management process for other owners (business pillar BTC PROP).

The certificate, awarded by the Bisnode credit rating agency, is awarded to companies that have received the highest creditworthiness rating Gold AAA for three years in a row. In Slovenia, the internationally recognised standards of platinum creditworthiness excellence are achieved by only 1.5% of companies, among which there is also BTC. The companies that have shown platinum creditworthiness excellence are seen as the most reliable, credible and low-risk business entities for cooperation with all business partners.

Certificate of Financial Reliability

In May 2019, the BTC Company acquired The Certificate of Financial Reliability. The Certificate of Financial Reliability is a document issued by Prva bonitetna agencija, d. o. o., to those business entities belonging to an elite group, which represents only 6.81% of all Slovenian business entities and for which a rating agency can, on the basis of carefully selected criteria and with all professional care, confirm that their financial situation and business operations are distinctly above-average. These business entities finance their business operations with the respective share of their own capital and have such a structure of assets and liabilities regarding their maturity that the latter assures their liquid current business operations and constitutes proper assurance of their solvent financial situation in the future medium-term period.

An open company is led by open ideas.

Employees & Innovations

Employee innovation culture

The new identity of BTC was shaped by two generations who faithfully pursued common goals and enabled the growth and development of company operations. The BTC company established itself through realised projects that arose from a collective effort towards innovative approaches and a strive for progress. Company management therefore continues to deliberately include its employees in processes of innovation. The creative spirit of our widest community gives rise to enterprising ideas, original thought and new visions.

Ideas and projects with a vision.

The BTC company is infusing its operations with an innovative business culture. To this end the Ideas And Projects With Vision project was commenced to promote and include employee creativity into company operations and further development. This has created space for forward thought and innovation of our employees to move to the forefront and strengthen while also bringing our employees closer at all levels of communication. The transfer of ideas and incentives into practice is therefore faster and more efficient.

Ideas that became reality.

Including greater numbers of employees into innovative thinking processes has created an explosion of business ideas and discoveries of new business opportunities. Between the years 2008 and 2014 our employees applied for 206 business ideas with a vision and 31 projects with a vision. One of these ideas led BTC to introduce a new undertaking of managing properties owned by other parties. The numerous awards that BTC has received over the years confirm the enterprise, originality and innovation of every person working in the company.

Excellent work and innovative ideas are always noticed.

From Central to Public Warehouses

The BTC company began in 1954 with the adoption of the founding contract for the Central Warehouses company at the incentive of the then Mayor of Ljubljana Marijan Dermastja. Expansion of operations and scope of business soon led the company to rename itself Public Warehouses. All of the warehousing activities in Ljubljana were thus consolidated in one place. In 1963 the company managed 68,867 m² of warehousing space. Just two years later the location grew into the largest goods storage facility in the former Yugoslavia.

Goods Transportation Centre Ljubljana – BTC

In 1975 the company developed into the largest goods and transport centre in former Yugoslavia and the Public Warehouses were again renamed into the Goods Transportation Centre Ljubljana (Blagovno-transportni center) – BTC. The company primarily operated in goods storage and distribution and in the period between 1977 and 1987 became one of the largest land terminals in Europe with 180,970 m2 of covered storage facilities. The warehouses stored goods prepared for export abroad and goods imported from Europe which were then distributed throughout Yugoslavia. The warehouses ware filled to capacity at all times.

 

BTC City

Over two decades of business transformation and urban renovation between 1993 and 2013 the BTC company – whose shares were successfully placed on the international capital market at the London Stock Exchange – pursued an intensive restructuring of the warehouse facilities and reorganisation of operations and developed into a property management company which now along with numerous business partners creates a harmonious fusion of different activities in a modern urban city space. The newly created BTC City is a diverse, architecturally modern, ambitiously reformed and carefully planned space, created as a response to the changing demands of modern times. The space has now become an integral part of the central cityscape and has established itself as a place of vibrant happening that anybody can participate in and co-create.

Intensive investments and development

The growth of BTC is the result of large scale investments into development.

Revolution in space

Best practices around the world and new opportunities of modern time became the incentive that led BTC to reinterpret and redefine its space. The grey warehousing monolith at the edge of the city was gradually transformed into a modern city area. The changed image and new business purpose of the area became a generator of further company development, source of inspiration and constant challenge.

That is why every year of BTC’s history was marked by investments, either the company’s own or those of partners, through which the company realized set projects, many of them large in scale and breakthrough in nature. Their realization influenced the growth and expansion of operations that are based more and more on the principles of sustainable development.

 

BTC shares at the London Stock Exchange

Shares of the BTC company were listed on the London Stock Exchange between 1997 and 2001. The selling of shares at LSE brought the company important funds for further development.

 

Investments; construction 1993–2014

  • 177,000 m2 of renovated business premises
  • 150,000 m2 of new constructions
  • The BTC company invested 241 million EUR.
  • Partners of the BTC company invested 165 million EUR.

 

One-tier management system

With the consent of the BTC, d. d., Assembly, the BTC Company adopted a one-tier management system in July 2019. The change in company management from a two-tier to a one-tier management system was implemented to facilitate the inclusion of BTC Company owners in strategic management decision-making and the development of the company’s activities. Therefore, the Board of Directors will also include the representatives of owners, who will not deal with business operations directly but rather monitor them and be involved in decisions relating to the company’s strategic matters.

The one-tier management system requires the establishment of a Board of Directors. A four-member Board of Directors was unanimously approved by the Assembly, with an additional member of the Board of Directors proposed by the Works Council. On the basis of the decisions adopted during their constitutional meeting, the Board of Directors consists of Chairman of the Board of Directors, Jože Mermal (non-executive member), his deputy Helena Petrin (non-executive member), Andrej Repina (non-executive member), and an employee representative, also a non-executive member, who will be proposed by the Works Council. The chief executive director, who will be responsible for the business operations of BTC, d. d., along with the other executive directors, each responsible for separate domains, is mag. Damjan Kralj.

With the one-tier management system, the BTC Company continues with the implementation of its vision and strategy, ensures transparency and a greater inclusion of company owners in the process of the company’s strategic development and decision-making, and fosters intergenerational co-operation and the transfer of knowledge in the company.

From green projects and state of the art technology to inventive management solutions.

Operations that create possibilities for successful development and new business opportunities.

Management of property and space, development of assets and consulting engineering

Through its many years of development the BTC company profoundly transformed itself and renovated the expansive area of BTC City, developing in the process into an exceptionally well versed manager of property. The company is now successfully marketing its comprehensive expert knowledge and experience in the field of property management.

The company portfolio was supplemented by another new service: integrated management of business premises for other business partners. Clients benefit from a comprehensive insight into the local market as the operative, tactical and strategic aspects of building and spatial management constitute part of the company’s daily activities.

High quality services and innovative management solutions assure optimal processes in the management of buildings and premises and enable the achievement of optimum cost efficiency.

Sustainable development

All the business decisions the company adopts reflect its responsible attitude towards its business partners, visitors, greater community and the environment.

 

Innovative business services

Expert and innovative business services in property management have empowered the BTC company to expand its undertaking of managing and developing properties to groups of similar character, including shopping centres, logistics, business premises, …

Inventive management services are based on partnerships with key business partners. BTC strives for excellence in its management of properties owned by other business entities and its knowledge and experience is supplemented by specialised know-how of strategic partners such as Petrol in the field of energy, IBM Slovenia and Microsoft in IT and others.

 

Multidimensional growth

The BTC company maintains its dynamic character through various forms of growth, ranging from innovative services and new business content, projects based on sustainable development, synergy between local and foreign business partners, social responsibility … to entry into new market segments. We have close ties with various multinational corporations and local companies, allowing us to link new projects with the local community while assuring investors all the benefits of long term growth and optimal yields.

BTC has in conjunction with IBM Slovenia introduced the most modern information system for computer supported management of assets and services – IBM Maxima. The system supports integrated management of investment projects, space, energy and the environment.

 

Logistics

The BTC logistics centre builds on its long standing tradition of logistics services and wealth of knowledge and experience with modern information and communications technology. Modernisation of services across the board has strengthened BTC’s position on the logistics market and placed it among the leading service providers for higher end goods.

 

Globalisation

BTC company selects international business partners for long term strategic cooperation and strengthening of market content on the basis of trends and guidelines in the global and local arena.

 

Key generators of income:

  • BTC Cities management
  • Logistics services
  • BTC PROP – Development and management of third party properties
  • Mission: green
  • Strategic projects

Innovative services, creative solutions, partnership networks in dialogue with the future.

Management of property and space, development of assets and consulting engineering

Another major factor in the further development of BTC City beside the Ljubljana Intermodal Logistics Terminal will be the large scale new urban development project titled the Šmartinska Partnership.

 

A prestigious city quarter like New York’s Manhattan

Considerable investments over the past twenty years, particularly in new construction, renovations of facilities and infrastructure, energy efficiency and modern information technology have transformed the suburban industrial area into a modern city – BTC City, attesting to the company’s relentless pursuit of growth, development and expansion of activities.

This public-private partnership project, for which the Urban Municipality of Ljubljana published an international urban planning competition for a complete design concept of the area that directly borders on BTC City, will redefine the purpose of 230,000 m2 of degraded industrial land along one of the longest traffic routes in the city, Šmartinska street, and a railway line.

The selected concept proposes that the area be developed into a prestigious urban quarter the likes of New York’s Manhattan, with a number of business/commercial and residential buildings around a large central park.

Two of the projects planned in the Šmartinska Partnership have already been realised: the Crystal Palace and Plaza hotel.
