Demolition works have started on the premises of the former PROJPRZEM MAKRUM factory in Bydgoszcz. After relocation of production and cleaning the area of industrial buildings, Grupa Kapitałowa IMMOBILE will continue the construction of the largest modern housing estate in the city.
The commencement of work in the heart of Osiedle Leśne did not go unnoticed by residents and local journalists. The property being demolished is owned by Makrum Development, which, like PROJPRZEM MAKRUM, is part of the IMMOBILE Group. The company started demolition works at the end of September, after obtaining relevant permits. Currently, facilities such as the production hall building, furnace building, office building with transformer station, cut-off building as well as northern and southern cranes are being dismantled. Paint and blast room buildings are also independently dismantled.
It will take about seven months to clean up the area after the Makrum factory. Demolition works have no negative impact on production processes carried out by companies of PROJPRZEM MAKRUM the Industrial Group. For this scenario it was being prepared for several years, when key decisions were made regarding the purpose of allocating this attractive investment area for housing, office and service construction. The production of Makrum crushing and grinding machines has been relocated or moved to outsourcing partners in the part ensuring better cost effectiveness.
The production of the leading machines of the PROJPRZEM MAKRUM Group, i.e. docking systems and automatic parking systems, takes place at the company’s main plant in Koronowo near Bydgoszcz. This plant, despite ongoing expansion, generated record production in the first half of this year. The investment worth about PLN 20 million will last until next year and will double the company’s production capacity, followed by an increase in efficiency, cost reduction and an increase in the competitiveness of manufactured products.
The area left after the former factory in the quarter of Sułkowskiego, Kamienna, Leśna and Dwernickiego Streets has been turning into a multi-functional housing estate Platanowy Park for several years, which will cover a total of almost 10 hectares. Three housing stages (stage zero, stages I and II) have already been built.
We consistently implement the concept of building the entire estate. The specificity of this housing estate is that the investment is divided into housing and service stages. We promised to our buyers that such activities would be carried out and that is why further demolitions began. We are currently obtaining a building permit for the next, third housing stage. It will take a while, we need to have this area prepared for the future, which is why the completion of demolition works is not synonymous with the start of further construction. All this needs to be carefully designed, go through the subsequent stages of obtaining permits, then we will be able to continue working – said Jacek Kazubowski, Vice President of the Management Board of CDI Konsultanci Budowlani, investment developer to Gazeta Wyborcza.
