Within the context of rapid developments, following the unification of Germany, ENKA was determined to hand over the project on the planned arrival date of the troops. ENKA’s speed in completing the 725 apartments required intensive logistical arrangements, backed up by the network of ENKA Offices in Istanbul, Minsk, Moscow, Wiesbaden, Stockholm and London. As a result of this coordinated effort, a total of 1,510 trucks and 1,747 train wagons of equipment and materials were moved to the site. At the peak of activity, the number of workers and personnel reached 3,300. The inauguration ceremony on January 8, 1992, received extensive international media attention, and marked ENKA’s successful contribution to a historic event.
