Skanska has ended the construction of a didactic building for a Law and Administration Faculty of the Lodz University. A 21,5 thousand square meters project has been completed two years before the deadline stated by the agreement.
The construction was finished in such a short time due to an outstanding cooperation with the investor and designer as well as because of determination of our staff, subcontractors and suppliers – said Artur Piasecki, Project Manager at Skanska.
The building is intended for 10 thousand students and a few hundred university employees. The design theme on the building is a paragraph sign – symbol of law. Building is divided into two sections: lower for the students – with didactic rooms, studies, library and dean’s office and upper section for university staff.

Due to four entrances leading to the main hall, access to the building is possible from all sides, which makes it an integral part on the campus communication system.
The building is adapted for the disabled. There are no architectural barriers in the building. There are no doorsteps at the entrances.
