Japan-based automotive safety systems supplier Takata has established its largest European production facility in Miskolc, including 12 buildings with a total floor area of some 63,000 sqm. Óbuda Group has been responsible for project management, site management, and construction supervision. Designed by Óbuda Építész Stúdió Kft, the industrial project has been completed in record time. The manufacturing complex specialises in the production of airbags and their essential pyrotechnic components, so-called inflators. The technology used had been unknown both by the industry and the authorities in Northern Hungary, which required us to complete the building permit plans and then going through the authority procedures in a speedy manner, while manoeuvring in a ‘virgin’ area. The scope of the services required from us has been extended to such an extent that it involved the entire spectrum of the engineering services related to a new development, with certain developer tasks also appointed to our company. In this fast-track project we only had 11 months for planning and construction instead of the usual 18 to 24 months.
