POLAND Three parties have entered bids for the construction of the Museum of Polish History.

All the bids submitted exceed the budget of the ordering party. The Museum of Polish History is to be built on the sites of the Warsaw Citadel. The contractor is to be selected in an unlimited tender. As ‘Eurobuild CEE’ has discovered, the museum is analysing a number of responses to this situation. It is not yet clear whether the tender will be annulled, whether the costs will be cut or whether it will be possible to obtain additional funding for the project. Talks with the Ministry of Culture are also in progress.

The bids were submitted by: a consortium of Hochtief Polska as the consortium leader and Warbud as consortium partner (PLN 635.6 mln gross); a consortium of IDS-Bud, Mar-Bud and UD Budownictwo (PLN 565.8 mln gross); and Budimex (PLN 565.5 mln gross). The Museum of Polish History has allocated PLN 483.3 mln gross for the construction of the museum.

The total area of ​​ the Museum of Polish History building should amount to app. 44,000 sqm, 8,000 sqm of which will be used for warehouses and the restoration workshops of the Museum of the Polish Army. The entire complex is to be called the Museum Citadel, and will include the Museum of the 10th Pavilion and the Katyń Museum (which already exist), as well as the Museum of the Polish Army and the Museum of Polish History. A recreation and leisure area for residents is also planned within the 30 ha site as well as a square in the central part of the complex. Underneath the square there will be a two-level car park for visitors and employees with spaces for coaches.

The new museums will be located in different parts of the citadel: two pavilions will be in the south and north sections, where the rooms of the Museum of Polish Army will be located, while the Museum of Polish History will be centrally located facing the east.
