Bilfinger Tebodin manages the construction of the Intel Technology Poland Research and Development Center IGK6 in Gdańsk, Poland. In March 2023, Bilfinger Tebodin received an occupational permit and it ended an important period in the history of the project.
Intel is one of the leading technological and international companies. The construction of the new center started in December 2020. The project is aimed to construct the most innovative and smart Research & Development building, to allow Intel to advance in areas, related to the evolvement of technologies that increase the efficiency of data center infrastructure and expand the possibilities of using artificial intelligence.
“Bilfinger Tebodin acted as the owner`s engineer of the whole project and supported Intel throughout the entire process in terms of technical, organizational, and management services. At the current stage of work, having the occupancy permit, Bilfinger Tebodin can start the final commissioning part and preparation of the building for handover from contractor to client”, says Piotr Kolmetz, Business Development Manager at Bilfinger Tebodin in Poland.

Receiving LEED PLATINUM
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a green building certification program used worldwide. The Intel project obtained the LEED certificate at the Platinum level. Carrying out the certification process was one of the contractual duties of General Contractor. Bilfinger Tebodin was not involved directly in this activity. The firm monitored the certification process and supported the client.
According to Kamilia Konopko - “Bilfinger Tebodin is committed to the environment and high level of services so the opportunity to manage the project which is certified so high is a great privilege.”
