At the beginning of January 2006, the Infrastructure Branch (Oddział Infrastruktura) has been established at HOCHTIEF Polska, a new business unit based in Warsaw at 15 Powązkowska St. The Division is headed by Mr. Leszek Ceran.

The scope of activity of the new unit is to provide end-to-end services in the field of construction of roads and bridges, rail and seaport infrastructure as well as environment conservation utilities.

The Infrastructure Branch was created on the foundations of the Profit Center Infrastructure, in operation since 2005. The first large project acquired by the Profit Center Infrastructure is the construction of the Deepsea Container Terminal Gdańsk (DCT) in the Northern Port in Gdańsk, Poland.

HOCHTIEF Polska takes part in the DTC project as a member of an internal consortium formed with HOCHTIEF Construction AG Civil Engineering and Marine Works.

- Establishing a separate unit to deal with infrastructural projects is our response to the growing demand for that kind of investments we are witnessing on the Polish market. Nobody had any doubts that the development of infrastructure in Poland is of the most important issues with a huge impact on the Polish economy.

Even though the Infrastructure Branch has formally been operating since the beginning of 2006, HOCHTIEF Polska has already gained long years of experience in the construction of civil engineering objects, such as the construction of bridges and viaducts on {the Polish} motorway A2.

Besides, as a part of one of the largest international construction corporations we can use the knowledge and expertise of the so-called competence centres of the HOCHTIEF Group whenever we need. This form of partnership allows us to quickly implement the best international standards in the projects we are involved in, said Mr Leszek Ceran, Director of the Infrastructure Branch.
