In Poland, PORR (POLSKA) S.A. has been involved in the construction business since 1987, commissioned by foreign and Polish Investors. Hotel Holiday Inn in Warsaw was the first investment completed in Poland. Completion of other investments led to the formation of PORR (POLSKA) S.A., which was established in 1993.
During the 25 years of our presence in Poland we managed to complete many “turn key” representative buildings here such as Hotel Intercontinental at Emilia Plater Street, Warsaw Financial Centre, Library of the Warsaw University in Powisle, Sheraton Warsaw Hotel and Stock Exchange building, Old Brewery in Poznan, as well as Auditorium Maximum in Jagiellonian University in Cracow.
Our business includes “turn key” finishing of buildings using high-quality materials and workmanship.
The main areas of our business include in particular general and industrial construction in Poland, including hotels, office and educational buildings, house building industry, commercial centres and industrial buildings. On the 29th of June 2012 merger of PORR (POLSKA) S.A. S.A., PTU Polska Sp.zo.o. and Teerag-Asdag Polska.Sp.zo.o. took place. The above mentioned companies merged with Porr (Polska ) S.A together with their technical and executive potential. From this moment, PORR (POLSKA) S.A. enriched its construction offer with road works, infrastructure, environmental, rail works and power industry.
