From the very beginning, REC was involved in organizing the selection of architectural plans, in coordinating and supervising the design engineering, organizing the selection of the builders, but also coordinating and supervising the execution of the works. The investment in the construction of the first phase of the DSBU campus amounts to 10 million euros out of the total investment of 20 million euros required to carry out the entire project.
„Beyond its usual project management activity, REC was also involved in optimizing the technical solutions, financing the project and finding sponsors for DSBU. Consulting, design and project management of school projects form a very important area of expertise, which REC has been carrying out in Germany for many years. We are happy to implement the same standards in Romania, especially in a unique project such as the new Deutsche Schule Bucharest campus, "said Rafat Kamal, REC partner.
"Our promise was to start the 2020-2021 school year in a new and also modern building. We culminate in being one of the most modern schools in Europe, and in September we can enjoy all the facilities that this school brings us. For this we thank all the partners who supported us, especially REC, who stood by us from the very beginning "- said Friederike Gribkowsky, chairman of the board of DSBU.
The Deutsche Schule Bucharest campus is being built in two stages, on a land area of 21,300 sqm, donated by Petrom, and a built-up area of 10,950 sqm, located in the northern part of Bucharest, next to another large-scale project also designed and coordinated by REC, namely Petrom City. The new school will be able to accommodate 500 students and will integrate all forms of pre-university education. The campus has a physics laboratory, a chemistry laboratory, an IT laboratory equipped at very high standards, a library, spacious large classrooms, an indoor sports holl and three outdoor sports fields, an athletics track, its own canteen, an ultramodern auditorium for festivities. The construction activity also continued during the government's imposed emergency period, with respect to the specific rules, and Deutsche Schule Bucharest can be inaugurated in September 2020.
REC's area of expertise includes various services for established customers such as Petrom City, Promenada Shopping Center, Millennium Tower, Metropolis Center, Charles de Gaulle Plaza.
