The contracts have a combined value of €120m (£84m). The client, the Polish National Roads and Motorways Department, decided to award the contracts to a single company that could provide an integrated service, in particular making use of its network of quarries.
The S3 motorway contract involves a 19.7km section of dual carriageway and 12 structures south of the city of Legnica, near the border with the Czech Republic.

The second contract is for a bypass to the town of Szczecinek in Western Pomerania in the north-west of Poland. Work is expected to take 34 months, excluding winter months.
