Budimex to expand Opera Nova in Bydgoszcz

On 12 January 2023, Budimex signed a contract for the expansion of Opera Nova in Bydgoszcz, involving another construction stage (“Fourth Circle”) and car park infrastructure (underground). The project will take 28 months for the Opera building and 18 months for the car park, with nearly 300 spots.


The Fourth Circle of the Opera is to have a functional and utility linkage to the main building. It will house a scene rehearsal room with a multi-functional audience section, the scene proper, an orchestra pit, a trapdoor, and more facilities, as well as a cinema room with solutions for a superior image and sound experience. The car park will include an underground level plus a square on the surface above.
