Budimex to modernize Silesian Planetarium in Chorzow
Works connected with the extension of the Silesian Planetarium in Chorzow are underway. The investment has a net value of PLN 74.5 million and includes the modernisation of the existing facilities and the construction of a new part of the building. In comparison with the planetarium in its previous form, the new one will be more than 3,000 sqm larger. The construction is continuing normally, despite the winter break – the progress of the modernisation and extension of the facility has reached almost 50 percent. The contractual deadline for the completion of construction works expires at the end of August 2021. The facility consists of three parts, each with a different purpose and completely different structure. The essential parts of the buildings which Budimex is currently modernising and adapting to the investor’s needs and requirements include the Planetarium, the Observatory and the auxiliary building. The existing and newly designed parts will be connected by a panoramic elevator located on the west wall of the clock courtyard.
