Building Construction Department
We specialize in the construction of:
POLAQUA became involved in executing construction projects for the commercial and public sector in 2006. The General Purpose Construction Division established in that year focuses on erecting “turn key” public utility, industrial, commercial and housing facilities. In April 2007 we also took over the construction-related portion of the Gdańsk-based Polnord company, thus acquiring experienced staff and, as Polnord’s legal successor, the right to use the references the company had received. As a result, we are invited to cooperate with a new group of investors, as one of the market’s leaders.
Our operation is based on two regional branches in Gdańsk and Opole, as well as on the office in Warsaw. It is the branches’ task to analyze the situation on local markets and to acquire new contracts.
Good cooperation is what we value
At construction sites we act as the general contractor, cooperating with a number of subcontractors. We use our own specialist companies from the POLAQUA Capital Group: plants manufacturing steel structures, makers of concrete semi-finished products and aggregate mines. There are cases in which several dozen subcontractors all work together on a construction site. It takes great organizational efficiency and market knowledge to skillfully manage their work. Thanks to efficient coordination, our contracts are executed in a timely manner and within the investor-defined budget.
The investors appreciate such an approach, as they often return to take advantage of our services more than once. They value our strict quality policy and the fact that all the procedures that we introduce are confirmed by means of AGAP and ISO certificates. In answering the market demands, many of our projects have been implemented in a fully comprehensive manner – from obtaining planning permissions to acquiring the building use permit.
Unforgotten construction sites
We specialize in constructing high-volume facilities: commercial and shopping centers, hotels, industrial facilities and housing buildings. Our portfolio includes such projects as the Tesco Commercial and Service Center in Gdańsk – one of the largest facilities of this type in Poland, commissioned in 2008. It gave the city of Gdańsk 33,000 m2 of shopping area and a two-level, underground parking lot.
Construction of the Auchan Shopping Center in Szczecin was another huge investment, which was also interesting from the engineering point of view. The facility was erected as a result of cooperation of three POLAQUA divisions: General Purpose Construction, Civil Engineering Construction, as well as Road and Bridge Construction. The project was completed at the end of 2008.
The Biała Gallery in Białystok, with the area of 77,000 m2 has been recognized as the Construction Site of the Year. We are passionate about new challenges. The sheer size of another of our projects – the Elbląg-based iron casting plant for Alstom – is evidenced by numbers – the facility uses 22,000 tons of steel structures.
