The ICC will be probably built by Polimex-Mostostal for 252,7 million PLN. All Polish parts of tendering procedure were done and European Commission has to approve the project and earlier procedures before signing the contract.

Contract signed.

@ Sylver
For events like this. One place that can concentrate up to 20 thousands people (with Spodek, both buildings will be connected directly) in one place in the same time.

Is this part of Poland the nation's main economic/population area? It always seems larger than Warsawa on maps (kinda how the Essen/Ruhr region looks bigger than Berlin).

Sorry if I'm totally wrong, I was just wondering

As the construction site of the International Convention Center was handed over to the Polimex-Mostostal prime contractor over ten months ago, observers should see a growing structure of the building nowadays. Though, the pace of works is not that fast as it is expected.

According to the contract signed between the City Hall of Katowice – an investor of the undertaking – and Polimex-Mostostal, the company has to finish the construction work by the end of May 2013. The works on the ICC are presently several months delayed due to the unexpected circumstances (additional tests answering where a contaminated soil from the mine waste dump can be removed and also it was necessary to fill in post-mining voids at the site) and financial problems experienced by the company that affect the construction.

Additionally, the PLN 304,5 million investment is co-financed by the EU funds and the Union requires a strict deadline to be kept for the realization of the building. To avoid further problems with the delay, the contract engineer of the project is working on an emergency plan. Details can be known in the weeks to come.

By now, the mine waste dump was removed and the builders have commenced works on a foundation. Also, first elements of side walls were erected in the north-west part of the future building. Three of four planned towers cranes already work at the construction site.

Parabolic walls, vibro-insulators, black concrete, hand-made formworks of wooden strips, huge rubber moulds, four tower cranes and more than 150 workers at the construction site – this is how Warbud builds the new PLN 265 million seat of the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra (NPRSO).

After five months and a half when the works have been started, the prime contractor’s strong commitment to erect the building on time and on standard is visible. “First elements of the foundation slab we have laid on 28th of March this year, two weeks after the groundbreaking had taken place. Now, the whole investment is about 35-40 percent done” – said Grzegorz Strzelczyk, construction site manager at Warbud.

160 people are involved in the works every day. The number will be increased to about 500 when the outfitting is started. The builders have already raised the underground storey mostly designed as a parking space and are currently progressing with the ground and the first floors of the new venue. “The scale and technical complexity of the project has been unprecedented in Poland” – Grzegorz Strzelczyk adds. “The whole construction process has to be up to the architectural and acoustics standards prepared by the designers. For example, when carpenters finish hand-made formworks of each part of the parabolic external walls of the great concert hall, the head designer commissions the formworks at first and only then the concrete can be poured.”

The parabolic walls’ wooden formworks made of different-sized strips are covered by black concrete. Before that the strips have to be arranged according to specific sequence including the length and width. After the concrete is dried and the formworks are dismantled, the wall shows a subtle wood pattern. The process is very complex and had to be divided into a number of stages. “The formworks require best qualifications and involve great accuracy” – Grzegorz Strzelczyk explains. Before Warbud decided to pour the formworks with concrete in the building, several attempts on test walls were made at the construction site. The same kind of tests were applied for internal walls of the great concert hall – the irregular walls’ pattern is got by huge rubber moulds inside of which the natural-coloured concrete was laid. Here the walls will be painted black.

The external walls of the elevation are being already mounted and these are made of prefabricated elements prepared at the construction site. Then, the installed elements will be covered with the elevation of clinker bricks, aluminium and glass.

The acoustic quality of the broadcasts and recordings made by the musicians has to meet high-level requirements demanded from the first stage of the construction work. For example, both the great concert hall and the chamber hall are being placed on vibro-insulators to prevent transmission of noise and high frequency vibration to the halls. Representatives of Warbud emphasizes the unique solutions adopted in the project.

The new venue of the music lovers of the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra will be put up thanks to 22 000 cubic meters of concrete and 4 200 tons of steel. Four tower cranes reaching from 43 to 56 meters with a jib length of 60 meters each are helping to erect the building. The consortium of three firms – EBUD, LTT and Warbud as the leader – will build the venue for PLN 234,9 million (estimated total cost of the undertaking: PLN 265 million). The head designer of the building is Tomasz Konior, Nagata Acoustics – the world’s famous acoustic company from Japan – is responsible for the acoustics.

The building is being erected along Roździeńskiego Av. near the “Spodek” sport and exhibition hall.
