Biography: Waldemar Celiński-Mysław, associated with the construction industry since 1997. Always interested in the construction industry. Graduated from a construction school. His greatest professional achievement was the execution of the conference and leisure complex Cukrownia Żnin in Żnin, but the greatest challenge was the construction work related to the reconstruction of the Palace in Łochów. The contractor likes his job because this is his passion and driving force for the action. Antoni Gaudi the creator of the Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona is the greatest authority for Waldemar​​. In the future he will hand over the running of the company to his son, and will do what he like the most hunting and travelling.
