Budimex will build a part of the barrier at the border between the European Union and Belarus

On 4 January 2022, after negotiations with the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration and the Border Guard, we signed a contract for the construction of a part of the barrier on the border between the European Union and Belarus. We will execute the project on market terms, being one of several companies on the Polish market that have adequate resources and experience to professionally execute this order on time.


We have the potential and experience to complete the task on time. We execute over 200 construction contracts in each construction cycle, each with a value of up to PLN 2 billion. As a company, we complete the most complex construction works and engineering structures in Poland. In 2020, we constructed Poland’s largest flood control reservoir in Racibórz with an area of 26.3 km2 and a capacity of 185 million cubic metres. We carry out the work with Polish engineering staff (5,000 people) and our own construction equipment (over 0.5 thousand units of equipment). We also engage Polish subcontractors and local companies to work throughout the country.


“We are aware of the exceptional nature of this investment. Being one of the strategic companies from the point of view of defence, we have an obligation to act for the country in the event of special situations from the point of view of security. In the same way, we responded to the call for the construction of temporary hospitals and the completion of road and rail works after other general contractors withdrew from their contracts. We are also Poland’s largest construction company and we are obliged to support this investment as allowed by our knowledge, competence and equipment capabilities. This investment is a joint undertaking of the entire European Union and is intended to stabilise the situation at the border”, says Artur Popko, President of Budimex.
