PwC has decided to extend its office space in Silesia Business Park in Katowice by over 2,000 sqm and plans to employ over 300 specialists. As a result, 100% of the leasable space in building A of the complex is leased now.

The PwC Service Delivery Center (Shared Services Centre) has been operating in Katowice for seven years. The unit provides services for clients from across the world in a number of areas including financial audit, taxes and back-office services. In 2014, the company relocated to Silesia Business Park complex leasing over half of Silesia Business Park's building A, the first of four buildings planned for the project. So far, over 1,000 specialists have been employed at the PwC's offices located on Chorzowska Street. Currently, PwC occupies 9,200 sqm at Chorzowska Street, being among Skanska’s top-tier partners.

“Silesia Business Park is an example of a complex developed in compliance with the idea of future-proof offices –complete with tools that support the organization during its development and recruitment processes. Already eight out of every ten talents employed in the business services sector declares a desire to see their prospective office prior to signing an employment contract,” added Ewelina Kałużna, Leasing and Asset Management Director at Skanska Property Poland. 
Currently, Skanska is working on the third building of Silesia Business Park complex, which will be delivered to market by the end of 2016.
