The Polish subsidiary of Austrian construction firm Strabag has won a €60m contract to build the new embassy building for the Republic of Poland in Berlin.

The contract has been awarded by the Public Treasury of the Republic of Poland – Embassy of the Republic of Poland in the Federal Republic of Germany.

Under the contract, Strabag’s subsidiary will build a new five-storey building with a total area of more than 10,000m² on around 8,500m² of land.

Located in the boulevard Unter den Linden in the centre of Berlin, the building will comprise offices and rooms for representative purposes, an underground car park, planted rooftop terraces, two inner courtyards as well as an atrium.

Züblin Spezialtiefbau, another subsidiary of Strabag Group, is now completing the watertight excavation work on the site.

Strabag said that the design, construction and subsequent operation of the new building is being realised using the BIM 5D (Building Information Modelling) method.

Warsaw-based architectural company Jems Architekci has designed the new embassy building.

Strabag CEO Thomas Birtel said: “We are delighted to be realising this prestigious project in a prime central location in the German capital. The architecturally ambitious new building will harmonise quite well with its surroundings.”

The Polish Embassy had occupied the site on which the new building is now being constructed from 1990 to 2014.

The embassy now has been housed at an interim site in Berlin’s Grunewald district since the demolition of the old building in 2016.
