Warsaw, and Mostostal Puławy S.A Puławy – Azoty.
The consortium valued the construction of the arena at PLN 145 269 700.63.
Now, pursuant to the law, contractors whose bids were not selected, have time to appeal against the decision made by the tender commission. The procedure for selecting the contractor of the sports and show arena was divided into two stages in a form of restricted tendering.
16 contractors entered the first stage. They had to meet strict requirements concerning, among other things, technical capabilities, technical and human potential for implementing the task, and experience in implementing such investments. Companies’ financial situation ensuring the performance of the task was also checked. Seven contractors were invited to participate in the next stage. They had to submit, among other things, price bids. Having signed the agreement with the Commune of Szczecin City, the contractor will have 36 months to build the facility.

There will be ticket offices, welfare and office facilities, conference rooms and a restaurant.
