The Recife JCPM Trade Center is in a 20-story building featuring advanced technology and design. An opaque façade on the western side acts as a heat shield, while the glass front overlooks Recife harbour and the affluent Boa Viagem beach area. A central computer controls all the building's interconnected facilities and operations, including heat sensors and intelligent systems linking access turnstiles to lifts for effective use at busy times. Recife is built on three islands and has two international ports serving the sugarcane processing, electronics and textile industries. Recife features business incubators and a 'digital port' dedicated to IT, attracting multinationals and smaller local enterprises. The main activity is software manufacture but major developments include biometry, information security and wireless solutions. The city is known for its cutting edge medical facilities. The center has access to a helipad and five floors of parking. It is 10km from Guararapas International Airport.
