Doraco Gardens Awarded in ‘Invest in Children’ Competition

We are delighted to announce another award received for the Christmas illumination in the Doraco gardens! The last year’s largest Advent calendar in Poland and the Christmas lighting in the gardens in Opacka street were recognised in the poll organised by the CzasDzieci.pl portal in the category ‘private investment’.

The purpose of the ranking was to award sites in Poland that became an ideal place for children owing to the well-though-out planning of space and the high quality of infrastructure. Such sites are safe and friendly for small hands and legs, stimulate activity and discovering new places, and can both entertain and educate.

You are welcome to the next edition of illumination on 6 December 2017.

Students of the Gdańsk University of Technology constructed a roof of the future together with Doraco

Working in six-man teams, on 4-5 April 2017, students of the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Gdańsk University of Technology designed, constructed and carried out load-carrying capacity tests of hall roofs under the supervision of experts from Korporacja Budowlana Doraco. The project was carried out as part of IAESTE CaseWeek, i.e. nation-wide engineering workshops the purpose of which is to bring academic and business environments together and enable students of technical faculties to use their knowledge in practice.

As part of the project, the students designed and constructed 2×3 m models on their own. The models were exposed in the yard of the main building of the Gdańsk University of Technology.  The work carried out by the use of materials and tools provided by Doraco was planned for 16 hours and covered both the construction and tests of the roofing.
“The purpose of the project was to have students face a feasible engineering challenge in small teams from the beginning to the end within two days”, explains Bogusław Niklas from Doraco, a project tutor. “Hall roofing is a construction that is commonly used in civil engineering and, because of its size, it is more difficult than foundations or facades”.
On the second day of Doraco workshops, hall roofing constructed by the students were tested in terms of load carrying capacity. Apart from the maximum load, the chapter took into account construction bending, as well as economic aspects, i.e. material resources used for construction purposes. Installation time was also important because the students could obtain extra credits for preparing the construction before the regulation time. The greatest amount of credits was awarded to a group of students of the second year of Civil Engineering. All participants obtained gifts, and six winners were also awarded with paid traineeship in Doraco.
Thank you for your participation in our workshops and we congratulate all winners!

Doraco on an economic mission in Kazakhstan

At the end of March 2017, Korporacja Budowlana Doraco took part in an economic mission in Kazakhstan, which was organised  by the Polish Cluster of Construction Exporters in cooperation with and with support of the Trade and Investment Promotion Department of the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Kazakhstan and the Embassy of Kazakhstan in Poland.

The purpose of the economic mission was to identify opportunities for carrying out projects in Kazakhstan, as well as familiarising with local business activity requirements and conditions. At the same time, in Atyrau and Astana, the company discussed three selected projects and analysed opportunities for carrying out works at large construction sites in Kazakhstan.

The mission to Kazakhstan was the first targeted mission of the construction industry and is an outcome of a visit of the President of the Republic of Kazahstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, in Poland and a visit of representatives of Korporacja Ubezpieczeń Kredytów Eksportowych and Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego in Kazakhstan last year.


Doraco at the FREE TIME Festival – 1 and 2 April 2017

On the first days of April, Korporacja Budowlana Doraco took part in the Free Time Festival, which was held in the exhibition and congress centre Amber Expo in Gdańsk.
At the green stand promoting Doraco Gardens, which is a unique public space next to the Oliwski Park, visitors could play petanque on the specially prepared rink and then rest on a bench and watch films about attractions offered to visitors to date.

The Free Time Festival is a multidisciplinary bank of ideas how to spend free time in a creative and pleasant way. This event is addressed to people that do not like boredom, want to spend their time actively and creatively, to families with kids that look for unusual and interesting tourism, cultural, sports and recreational attractions.
