Foster and Partners has won a major$100 million office scheme for Heinz in Pilsudski Square, Warsaw, Poland.

The project is a 40,000m2 building designed by the practice after it competed unsuccessfully to design a different building for the same client in Paris, France. A spokeswoman said designs were due to be submitted to the city's covenant of monuments in the near future for the commercial office space. It is hoped work will start on site in January 1999. Heinz was interested in securing 'really signature architecture' in appointing Foster and Partners. The building should complete in the year 2001.

Poland has also been a successful stamping ground for Denton Corker Marshall, which is designing an International Business Centre after winning the job against hok and others. dcm now has an office of 25 in the city.
