The Karl Schuke Berliner Orgalbauwerkstatt company from Germany will soon start the installation of the Silesian Philharmonic’s new organ. In the meantime, the redevelopment and extension works of the building are systematically going to an end.
Mostostal Warszawa – a prime contractor of the undertaking – accepted 30th of October this year as the completion date of the construction works. The contractor also confirmed its readiness for the installation and intonation of the organ on dates specified together with Schuke.
The construction site was visited by the German company in May in order to define the technical conditions for the installation of the organ. The instrument designed by prof. Julian Gembalski will be installed between 5th and 31st of August and its intonation is set to be concluded by the middle of November. The instrument cost almost net PLN 3 million.
To keep the delivery date of the investment, both the existing building and the new extended part see the outfitting including the execution of wall facing and painting. Floors and horizontal insulation as well as suspended ceilings are being executed. External metalwork, elevations, acoustical structures in the dressing rooms and other elements of internal decorations are also continued. Moreover, the works recently encompassed structural cabling of the CCTV system, access control system, audio-video system, as well as works on sanitary installations.
