Polska First bars begin for the new Sinfonia

Public buildings
Construction work has begun on Sinfonia Varsovia's new home in Warsaw’s Praga Południe district. The city council has commissioned Doraco to carry out the first stage of the project, with the orchestra to move into its new address in two years' time.

I know that we are faced with a huge challenge, mainly due to the conservation supervision of the project, but we will certainly be up to the task. Our track record includes the revitalisation of the Smyk building in Warsaw city centre, and we are currently renovating the historic BGK headquarters – both investments are under the care of the conservation services.
Andżelika Cieślowska, the CEO of Doraco

Under the PLN 117 mln contract, three of the five buildings of the former Veterinary Institute on ul. Grochowska are to be redeveloped. It has taken 18 months to select a contractor, with the situation having been complicated by the withdrawal of state funding. According to the Mayor of Warsaw, Rafał Trzaskowski, the city is currently seeking funding for the second stage of the project under the city's long-term plan.

Perhaps the next government will be more open to subsidising the project. Nowhere in the world are such significant projects realised solely from the local government’s budget.
Rafał Trzaskowski, the Mayor of Warsaw

TheMayor also evealed that the search for a contractor for the second stage could begin at the end of this year or at the beginning of the next. The Sinfonia Varsovia Centre is being built according to a design by Austrian studio Atelier Thomas Pucher and will comprise four concert halls (including the largest in Poland with a seating capacity of over 1,850), a recording studio, educational areas, a garden and a catering section. The project will be implemented using the BIM system. In addition to the extensive modernisation of the three buildings, an underground technical facility is to be construction housing the BMS of the entire complex.
