Since January this year, ERBUD has signed construction contracts worth over PLN 1 billion.
Almost PLN 90 million net - this is the value of the order for the construction of the first stage of the European Film Centre (ECFC) in Toruń. ERBUD, selected as the contractor, has 22 months to execute this prestigious project.
“This contract is special for us for a number of reasons. As a Group, we want to participate in all socially important initiatives, and the creation of such an impressive cultural institution is certainly one of them. It is also a beautiful and bold architectural project that will change the face of Toruń forever and attract the interest of tourists from all over Europe to the city. This is an additional reason for us to be proud, because even though we are an international company, we come from Toruń, and local patriotism is deeply rooted in us,” emphasises Jacek Leczkowski, Vice-Chairman of ERBUD, responsible e.g. for building construction.
ERBUD has built many prestigious cultural institutions, including: the headquarters of the Warsaw DESA Auction House, the Maritime Science Centre in Szczecin, opened last year, and the Znaki Czasu Contemporary Art Centre in Toruń, located on a plot adjacent to the planned ECFC.
This is one of many important construction contracts signed recently. “We are pleased that another large contract has been added to our portfolio in recent weeks. The total value of contracts signed since the beginning of September has already significantly exceeded PLN 300 million,” adds Jacek Leczkowski. Since January this year, ERBUD has signed building construction contracts worth over PLN 1 billion.
The CAMERIMAGE European Film Centre is a state cultural institution established jointly by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, the Toruń City Hall and the Tumult Foundation. Its most important task is to develop and promote film art and wider audiovisual culture. The film studio is the first stage of the construction of the ECFC headquarters. Ultimately, by 2025, a multifunctional facility is to be built, which, together with the aforementioned Contemporary Art Centre and the Jordanki Cultural and Congress Centre, will become part of the cultural heart of Toruń.
