On Friday, September 18, 2015, a topping out ceremony was held at the new office of the Polish Air Navigation Services Agency in Warsaw.
A new training and administrative building is currently being built at Okęcie airport.

So it should be when the parties with such a history sign a contract. This year, Mostostal Warszawa celebrates its 70th birthday and our junior partner is celebrating 56 years.”
I thank the contractors and all employees of PANSA involved in the implementation of this investment. It is not often that such a project progresses so smoothly, according to schedule and without problems. I look forward to the moment when the site is commissioned,”said Magdalena Jaworska, President of PANSA.
Providing modern conditions of air traffic controller training is the main purpose of the construction of the facility. The building will include: the Aviation Training Centre equipped with two modern air traffic control simulators, as well as professional classrooms to conduct training for candidates for air traffic controllers and training for staff who already have a KRL license. Technical radio communication equipment and rooms and equipment for meteorological services will also be accommodated in the building. The new facility will have energy-saving features and the building will be connected to Air Traffic Control Centre.

We are also carrying out masonry and insulation work, plastering in the garage and in recent days we have started the installation of the post and beam facade,” adds Robert Tomaszewski Site Manager at Mostostal Warszawa.
