Construction for a new office complex at Malaga Port has suffered its first setback. The project was first approved in July and will see the Guardia Civil headquarters moved to the harbour.
A resource issued by the College of Architects has now temporarily paralysed procedures. The collective has demanded the public tender be declared void. They explain the contract signed by the port’s authority -José Moyano- infringes on the law for contracts in the public sector.
Dean of the architects, Francisco Sarabia, has questioned the decision of the port to independently award the basic drafting of the project to the company that will do the future building work. He also highlights the fact that quality criteria hasn’t been the priority it should be, with over 50% of the total assessment being granted to economical aspects. The College of Architects awaits a response from project leaders and is evaluating judicial actions.
