The Balearic Islands’ Port Authority (APB) has published the tender notice to condition and improve the contradike of the port of Ibiza, which includes the construction of the new building of Es Martell. The tender terms are available to consult on the Platform for Public Sector Procurement, which can be accessed via the Governments Electronic Office.
The tender budget is 2.2 million Euros, taxes included. The deadline for execution of the construction works has been established to six months. The parties interested may submit their bids to the Register of the APB until the 20th September at 14.00pm. The economic bids will be opened starting on the 27th September.
The refurbishment of Es Martell has been designed by local architects Calvo and Quesada. The new building will have a surface area of 596 square meters and will serve for multiple port uses. It has been designed so that it is integrated in the protected environment of the marina of the port of Ibiza.
The perimeter of Es Martell will be promoted as a recreation and contemplation area through four well-defined spaces in the project. It will consist of a tree-covered square, which will be the extension of Antoni Riquer square, bound to the harbour’s promenade and articulated towards the elevated square (which will be the roof the future building); the end of the tree-covered square, which has been designed as a stage area and a preface of the stage-stairway; the stage-stairway with access to the square with a viewpoint and the square with viewpoint itself as a place of enjoyment and contemplation.
The demolition of the old building of Es Martell was the beginning of the second phase of the reform of the seafront façade of the port of Ibiza, which aims to integrate the port and the city for the enjoyment of residents and tourists as well as the compatibility with other port uses.
