After almost eight months Silesian Museum in Katowice announced today a name of company which had filed the best offer for a prime contractor of the new Museum’s seat. The best terms were offered by the consortium of Budimex S.A., Poland (the leader) and Ferrovial Agroman S.A. from Spain. A gross price of the offer is PLN 206 149 262,16.
Five consortiums were tendering for the contract in the last second stage of the procedure. “According to the directions, companies tendering for the contract have 10 days to file a bid protest. If no motion is filed, then we have to send documentations to the Public Procurement Office which will evaluate the procedure. The Office will have 30 days to make an opinion. If the decision is positive, we will be able to sign the contract with the chosen prime contractor. Then, the consortium has a green light to kick off construction works” – said Łukasz Dziąbek, Manager of the Project Implementation Unit at Silesian Museum.
The new Silesian Museum will be located at 6 Kopalniana St. in the area of the former “Katowice” coal mine. The plot and old mine’s buildings will be transformed into a 25 000 sq. m. modern exposition and cultural facility mostly located under the ground. The Riegler Riewe Architekten studio from Graz is responsible for the architectural concept.
