Congress Center Hamburg (CCH) has been a construction site for over four years. Refurbishment is dragging on and requires significantly higher costs than planned.
Hamburg – The construction project around the Congress Center Hamburg* (CCH) has been dragging on since the end of 2016 – and there is still a construction site on the site. A reopening was actually planned for the summer of 2019, but the cost and time required for the building complex keeps skyrocketing. The renovation began with a budget of around 194 million euros. In the course of the construction work, however, there were several additional costs. It also has Corona pandemic* – as is so often the case – to do their part.
The global corona crisis has led to delays, which in turn have triggered additional costs, project manager Hellmut Körner tells the Hamburger Abendblatt. Workers from Eastern Europe could not travel to Germany, so there were days when only about half of the approximately 550 workers were on site, according to the project management. In addition, the prices in the construction sector have risen dramatically in the past few weeks. But for the corona-related measures “only” about 6.2 million euros in costs should be added. In which area of the Congress Center Hamburg the additional 13.5 million euros will flow into it*, read on 24hamburg.de. * 24hamburg.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
