Construction Supervision: Pirot General Hospital
05. January 2021

The renovation of Pirot General Hospital has begun. In a global crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Oktopaz is proud of improving the health system by providing construction supervision. Our vision is that our client’s success and environmental and social awareness development matter.

The renovation of Pirot General Hospital improves its energy properties:

  • Energy rehabilitation of the outer shell (facades, bay windows, walkways, and roofs)
  • Renovation of interior rooms (floors, walls, suspended ceilings, and mezzanine construction towards the unheated basement)
  • Replacement of external carpentry in the entire building
  • Replacement of external entrance portals in the entire building
  • Replacement of light domes
  • Insulation of interior walls towards unheated space
  • Ceiling insulation towards unheated space, etc.

The aim of this renovation is multiple:

  • Reduction of energy consumption in winter and summer
  • Completion of the part of the hospital that is not yet in functional condition
  • Setting indoor air parameters into narrow limits of optimal values
  • Providing greater accessibility to the building
  • Other functional changes

The gross unfolded building floor area under renovation is 35,512 square metres.

Our construction supervision on the improvement of energy efficiency includes all engineering disciplines envisaged by the architect: structural & fit-out, thermo-technical, and electrical works.

This project will be exceptionally demanding because it happens when the hospital is in the COVID-19 system.
