Signing of the contract for the construction of the new Fran Albrecht Elementary School in Kamnik
The design of the facility is partly reinforced concrete, partly steel and will cover over 8,000 square meters of total gross area. It is a demanding and design-perfect project, which envisages two separate expansion units connected by a central bridge element. Over 250 tons of steel for the load-bearing structure, 5,000 cubic meters of concrete and 550,000 kilograms of reinforcement will be used. The outcome will consist of 32 new classrooms and 18 rooms for teachers with electrical and mechanical installations for heating, ventilation and cooling of rooms and active and passive fire protection installed.
In addition, the selected materials and thoughtful design will also contribute to room acoustics, which will be adapted to different programs. The entire facility will be completed with a flat roof and a facade membrane made of expanded metal sheet.
At the time of the signing of the contract the Mayor Matej Slapar addressed the audience: »The municipality of Kamnik is determined and so we are starting the construction of the new Fran Albrecht Elementary School in Kamnik. The development period of the construction of the school is really quite long, however, it is important that we are finally starting the construction, which is expected to be completed within 18 months. It is not the long duration of the project that matters, but the fact that despite everything, the project will be successfully completed. Looking to the future and striving for progress is the base foundation of our vision. The goal is that it is necessary to arrange a new school in the shortest possible time and provide a quality and professional approach to construction, as already in this school year, there is not enough room for the proper implementation of the learning process. As many as 100 students will attend school outside the home school building. Construction of the school is expected to start by this autumn, and the new school should accept students in the school year 2023/24.«
Sales Director at Kolektor Koling, Marko Trampuž added: »We believe that we can work with selected partners with quality, professionalism and precision, and at the same time with the participation of all stakeholders in the construction we successfully complete the project and at the beginning of the 2023/24 school year enable the Fran Albrecht Elementary School students a fresh start.«
The contractual value of the mentioned project amounts to EUR 14.44 million
