EUR 50 million of React-EU grants for integrated energy-saving renovation of University Medical Centre Ljubljana
Government Office for Development and European Cohesion Policy has approved EU funding for the project COVID19 – Integrated energy-saving renovation of the Hospital building of the University Medical Centre Ljubljana. Total project value of EUR 50 million will be covered by the European Regional Development Fund under the React-EU initiative. The project, implemented by the Ministry of Health, is already the sixth project financed by the React-EU grants under the NextGenerationEU recovery plan.
The project that will result in improved conditions for patients of the University Medical Centre Ljubljana focuses on implementing an integrated energy-saving renovation of two buildings of the University Medical Centre, located on the Zaloška cesta 9 Street in Ljubljana, namely the main building (hospital) as well as the old part of the building for diagnostic and therapeutic services. The energy-saving renovation will cover thermal insulation of the façade, flat roof and the floors of the unheated attic. The investment will also result in modernising the system for heating, cooling, ventilation and air conditioning, in modernising the lighting and replacing joinery. Lifts will be upgraded with frequency electric motors and a central control system, with organisational measures also being set up. 74,894.15 square metres of net floor area will also be renovated.
