Proger, in JV with PWC and Alcotec, is responsible for the Project Management and Construction Management of Poste Italiane’s “Polis – the home of digital services” project, presented in Rome on Monday, 30th January, in the presence of the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella, the Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and the mayors of the thousands of municipalities involved.
The project, worth over 1 billion euro, envisages various lines of action. The first concerns the creation of “one stop shops” in municipalities with a population of less than 15,000 inhabitants. Resident citizens have easy digital access to public service, and this involves the transformation of 7,000 post offices by equipping them with a digital and technological infrastructure cutting edge. The second line of action, “Spaces for Italy”, involves the creation of a digitally interconnected national network made up of 250 spaces for co-working, training and the provision of advanced services for professionals and businesses, to be made through the transformation of executive buildings and large post offices.
The duration of the Project and Construction Management activities is 48 months, for an amount of tender-based services of 6.2 million euros. This aims at supporting the integrated management of the initiatives to ensure the technical, economic and temporal adequacy of the realization of the works in relation to pre-set strategic objectives. In detail, the group led by Proger is responsible for assisting and supporting Poste Italiane in the planning, management and control of the “Sportello unico” and “Spazi per l’Italia” projects and the consequent real estate works.
“From an organizational point of view, the project will be divided into 6 geographical macro-areas with two Project Management Office (PMO) technical structures, one centralized for technical governance and one for the coordination of the customer’s local units“, states Jacopo Benedetti, Proger’s project manager. “We will provide a pool of Program Management and Construction Management experts, at a national and international level, with a strong technical competence in the management of the process of carrying out construction and plant engineering works within complex, standardized projects distributed throughout the territory.“
In Saudi Arabia, Proger can boast many years of experience in the Program Management of KAP 3 and KAP 4, two national 6 billion euro programs aimed at the construction of hundreds of offices and premises of the Ministry of the Interior throughout the Saudi territory. Proger is currently responsible of the Program Management Office of Riyadh Art, , a 1.5 billion euro program that will transform the Saudi capital into an open-air art gallery, with the installation of over 1,000 works of art, making it an international tourist and cultural destination.
“We are proud to be part of Polis, an ambitious program developing our country’s digital services, which affects millions of people”, comments Proger’s CEO Marco Lombardi. “We know that it will represent a real challenge for all the players involved, but, thanks to our professionalism, experience and our partners we are convinced that we will be able to provide all the necessary support to Poste Italiane to win it, respecting the constraints and achieving all the objectives.”
