BUDAPEST, 31-Mar-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — The European construction group STRABAG has been awarded the contract to build an art storage facility as part of the Liget Budapest Project. The complex of five buildings forms part of the National Museum Restoration and Storage Centre (OMRRK). The contract has a value of approximately € 39 million.

The 37,000 m² building ensemble will provide storage space for more than 350,000 artworks from the Ethnographic Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Hungarian National Gallery. The complex also consists of a visitor centre including auditoriums and a cafeteria. Visitors will find parking in an underground car park. One building is dedicated to research, with archives and offices as well as a library, lecture halls and meeting rooms. Construction is scheduled for completion by mid-2018.
