First car park in Poland using the PPP model built by Mota-Engil


On July 25, 2013, a new underground car park built by Mota-Engil Central Europe was inaugurated in Wroclaw, in Poland. The car park, located in the centre of the city, is the result of an investment in the public-private partnership (PPP), and as such it is the first project of this nature in the country.

The investment cost was about 9.5 million euros, Mota-Engil Central Europe being responsible for the construction, while the management of the undertaking for the next 40 years is in the hands of the company Immo Park, a subsidiary of the Mota-Engil Group which invested in the project under the PPP model.

The use of innovative solutions, high quality execution and an excellent location make this project a reference standard for other car parks in Wroclaw and the entire country. Built in less than three years, the car park has three levels with 332 parking places, five of them for the exclusive use of electric vehicles.

This contract is an example of the effective cooperation between a public entity and a private partner, and Wroclaw may become a reference point for other cities in the development of car parks using similar models.

Present at the official inauguration were the vice-mayor of Wroclaw, Wojcieh Adamski, and Jean-Patrick Marquet, representative of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, which provided the financing for the project. The Mota-Engil Group was represented by Martinho Oliveira, chairman of Mota-Engil Central Europe, along with other members of the company’s Board of Directors.
