An amendment to the Polish Construction Law aims to improve the investor’s legal status in this field. The legislative changes target the manner in which a construction design is approved and what constitutes a significant basis for approval for various construction projects. Investors in Poland who wish to open a construction business need to comply with the legal requirements in place in the construction sector.
A reinterpretation of the deviations from the construction design
The amendments brought to the Construction Law are beneficial for the investor in the sense that they will provide a more straightforward basis for interpreting subsequent deviations from the original construction design. For example, any changes to the height, length or width of an un-linear structure will no longer be considered significant deviations, provided that the said deviation does not exceed 2 percent of the initial dimensions. Other criteria may apply depending on the project. However, this is a positive change for investors in Poland or for contractors who can now avoid the unpleasant delays that would have resulted if a secondary approval was needed for the changes.
A more significant deviation from the construction design as well as other changes may be granted only after the decision to change the building permit has passed. One of our lawyers in Poland
