The City Hall of Katowice selected a winning tender for a construction contract to finish works on the International Convention Center. The consortium of Warbud and Mercury Engineering was chosen as the preferred bidder.

It was the second attempt to pick the prime contractor within this single tender procedure – earlier this year the City Hall had decided to choose the offer of NDI, Balzola and WHD (consortium) as the winning bid, however Warbud and Mercury Engineering appealed the decision in the National Appeal Chamber. The protest said that NDI, Balzola and WHD’s offer did not meet all financial conditions for participation in the tender procedure. The NAC had approved the complaint, ordered the City Hall to annul the decision and to evaluate the tenders once again.

The City Hall has just concluded the re-evaluation and on Monday, 29th of April, the gross PLN 280,2 million bid proposed by Warbud and Mercury Engineering was selected as the winning one. The second advantageous bid was made by Budimex (gross PLN 298,5 million). The offers of three other tenderers – the consortiums of NDI (leader), Hochtief (leader) and Strabag (leader) – were rejected by the evaluation committee.

The companies taking part in the tender procedure now can appeal from the decision within the ten days period. If no appeals are filed in the National Appeal Chamber, the City Hall will sign the contract with Warbud and Mercury Engineering.

Warbud will finish the ICC:

The City Hall of Katowice is very close to sign a contract with Warbud and to re-launch construction works on the International Convention Center.

Warbud, a winning bidder for the contract to finish works on the building, was chosen by the City Hall in the last days of April. According to the Polish procurement law, remaining companies taking part in the tender procedure had ten days to file an appeal against the decision. As no appeals have been filed in the National Appeal Chamber, the decision is deemed final.

“Now we just only have to wait for an ex-ante control of the contract award procedure to be done by the Public Procurement Office. The PPO has 30 days to make a final decision. If there are no complaints, we will sign the contract with Warbud” – explained Jakub Jarząbek, head of the City Hall’s press department.

Warbud is going to build the International Convention Center in co-operation with Mercury Engineering as a partner. The consortium will erect the building for gross PLN 280,2 million.

The new bidding procedure was essential to choose the new prime contractor after the last year’s denouncement of the agreement with Polimex-Mostostal. The contract was withdrawn due to inadequate performance of the financial and practical schedule, and delay of the construction work on the ICC.

The City Hall of Katowice and the consortium of Warbud and Mercury Engineering signed a contract to finish the construction work on the International Convention Center. The deal was made on Wednesday, the construction site will be handed over to the new prime contractor in June.

The consortium will erect the building for gross PLN 280,3 million. The works are scheduled for completion in October 2014. The offer of Warbud and Mercury Engineering was one of fifth bids made in a public tender. This is the second investment being carried out by Warbud in Katowice - the building company also raises the neighbouring new seat of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra.

The construction work on the ICC was suspended in September last year when the City Hall had withdrawn from a contract with Polimex-Mostostal, a former prime contractor of the venue, due to delay of works.

The Center will cover a usable area of 37 900 sq. meters where approximately 12 000 people will be able to participate in organized events at one time.

The ICC is one three main buildings creating a new cultural district in the area of the former “Katowice” coal mine. The total worth of the three undertakings and surrounding infrastructure exceeds PLN 1 billion.

According to the contract, Budimex is going to finish the works on the Silesian Museum next week, on 7th of June. The area between huge glass boxes is now being covered with greenery, i.e. different types of plants and grass. Previously footpaths of macadam were traced on the surface. These are the last finishing touches on the building.

Builders of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra’s new seat have crossed the half-way point of the construction and the prime contractor progresses with elevation works and outfitting inside the facility. PNRSO is scheduled for opening in October 2014.

The International Convention Center venue is in its initial stage of development. The works have been suspended for eight months due to the necessity of choosing a new prime contractor. The consortium of Warbud and Mercury Engineering will recommence the construction in June. They will have 16 moths to deliver the building.

The PLN 1 billion investment of cultural district also involves Strabag, which erects a footbridge between the ICC and PRNSO as well as Drogopol contracted to build a car park in the district, and Budimex – the company is responsible for the first stage of works on a new road system in the area.

The City Hall of Katowice has handed over the construction site of the International Convention Center (ICC) to the prime contractor.

The 37 900 sq. meters building will be erected by the consortium of Warbud and Mercury Engineering. First workers, building machinery and facilities have already appeared at the site including one of tower cranes that was mounted on Thursday.

“The construction site’s handover took place on Monday. According to the contract, the consortium will be erecting the building on a three 8-hour shift basis to provide around the clock coverage of the works” – said Janusz Nowak, project manager of the ICC.

The development of the International Convention Center is expected to be concluded in October 2014. The City Hall will pay gross PLN 280,3 million to the prime contractor.

The commissioning process and performance testing in relation to the works on the new seat of Silesian Museum was ended. In general, the building is now completed and only the troubleshooting will take place inside. Construction works on the remaining two other facilities of the cultural district are still underway.

During the last 56 days the commissioning committee were checking that the performance of the total building and its systems meet the design assumptions and requirements of the Silesian Museum. Budimex, a prime contractor of the undertaking, will now have time to remove all faults and imperfections in the building.

The neighbouring two facilities being currently built see a large attention and involvement of building crews. The construction work on the International Convention Center runs according to the schedule. The building process of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra’s new venue enters a very busy moment where outfitting will be timed to coincide with works on acoustics of the great and chamber halls. The official ending date of the works was moved from October this year to April 2014. The first inaugural concert in the new PNRSO’s seat will take place in October 2014.

A very big and interesting project. I think that Poland is a growing Nation and his role inside the EU is growing.

(...)

In Katowice, 50 miles northwest of Krakow, the European Union covered half of the $80 million budget for the new home of the National Radio Symphony. The brick structure — surrounded by 415 trees, planted in collaboration with the Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki, who is also an arborist — occupies the site of a former coal mine.

“There is a need,” Mr. Penderecki said. “How can you create an audience without a hall?”

Mr. Konior, the architect, called the new hall a breath of air. “After World War II, everything that is important culturally was denied,” he said. “People can feel that the building is there for them and identify with it.”

The National Radio Symphony formerly played in a 1970s hall built for the region’s Communist Party. “This is a different planet,” the first violinist Rafal Zambrzycki-Payne said of the new performance space in Katowice. The musicians “feel more exposed, so there is more pressure to perform well.”

Mr. Konior joined forces with the acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota of Nagata Acoustics — who helped design the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the soon-to-be-unveiled Philharmonie de Paris, among others — at the behest of the Polish pianist Krystian Zimerman, an international soloist.

“Stunning new hall in Katowice!” two players on tour with the London Symphony Orchestra posted on Twitter this month. The London orchestra’s principal percussionist, Neil Percy, wrote in an email that he was struck by “the way shapes sweep dramatically inside the building.” The acoustics “showed great potential for a brand new hall and improved with a full house in the evening,” he added.

The new hall is under a five-year contract with the European Union to put on concerts six nights a week. It has introduced series for chamber music and jazz. The home orchestra, subsidized by the Ministry of Culture, national radio and the city, plays three to four concerts a month, while each season will bring two international orchestras and choruses. Because the ministry allots funds year by year, the European Union funding provides security in the medium term.

Although Katowice has a population of just more than 300,000, it draws on two million others who live nearby. The city is also the seat of an orchestra that has enjoyed close relationships with Mr. Penderecki, Witold Lutoslawski and Henryk Mikolaj Gorecki — Poland’s great modern composers — and there are high hopes to create an international profile.

“We are closer to the world,” Mr. Konior said, “and the world is closer to us.”

The City Hall of Katowice has still not signed a concession agreement for services involving organization of events and management of the International Convention Center (ICC) and the „Spodek” sport and exhibition hall. The Administrative Court in Gliwice sustained a lodge which had been appealed by HKO – one of two companies competing for the concession.
