The renovation involved the original Town Hall, which houses the Authority in prefabricated buildings from the late 1970s that were not adapted to climate change and did not meet today's requirements for low energy consumption and the use of renewable energy sources. Therefore, the Town Hall decided to convert the headquarters into a highly energy-efficient building that uses renewable energy and rainwater and that works with IT solutions in intelligent traffic management. The ambitious redevelopment was carried out on the fly, which required extensive coordination to ensure that there was no disruption to government services anywhere.
The investment budget of the revitalisation amounted to CZK 99 754 059 of which CZK 49 877 030 was covered by the EU subsidy.
High-quality building insulation will reduce the energy consumption of the building, which will lead to a reduction in the amount of emissions in the production of the required energy. By converting the building, the Authority has also reduced its operating costs. Employees have a better working environment and citizens can conduct their business in more pleasant and representative premises. This renovation can serve as a positive example for other Town Halls across the Czech Republic.
