Client: Bega Group

Services: General Design, Permitting, Construction Management and Health & Safety Coordination

Project Details: Bega Group has appointed Optim Project Management as the General Designer and Construction Manager for the extension of Timisoara Hotel, an interesting new building that will bring the Convention Center concept to the city on the Bega River.

Classed as a multifunctional building, the Convention Center will have a height regime of 2 basements + GF + 1F + partial floor. The project is being built on a land area of 2,116 sqm and will have a total GBA of 8,350 sqm. There will be 70 parking places located in both basements and another 118 supporting parking places rented in an adjacent location; as green area, there will be 430 sqm allocated in total, out of which 347 sqm will be on the rooftop.

Optim PM was appointed in 2017 and started to provide full Design services, being responsible also for the Permitting process. The design successfully combines the exhibition area from the ground floor level with the multifunctional area from the first floor, which will be dedicated to conference events and festivities. On the rooftop, a food court will be fitted out and the terrace will be open to visitors.

The ground works of the Convention Center started in August 2018 and Optim PM is currently providing Construction Management and Health & Safety Coordination services. During the construction works, Austrian and Ottoman artefacts were discovered, thus Optim PM and the Client have worked in close collaboration with Vasile Parvan Institute of Archaeology Bucharest and the archaeological research was carried out in several stages in coordination with the construction works. All the proposed scientific objectives were successfully accomplished, and the construction area now has an Archaeological Discharge status.

The opening date of the Convention Center is targeted to take place in Q1 2020.
