Kaňka on the face of the front station in Brno: it will repair a dilapidated historic house next to Letma

Workers repair the facade and roof of the house, common areas and elevators. It will also replace the backbone wiring. “Due to the age and unsatisfactory technical condition of these parts, repairs to the building are inevitable,” explained Brno-Wednesday spokeswoman Kateřina Dobešová.

The representatives of the city district plan to start the reconstruction as soon as possible after signing the contract with the winning company. “Before starting the construction, we will organize a meeting with the tenants, at which we will acquaint them in detail with the scope of work. The house will remain inhabited during repairs. We expect that, for example, work in the house will stop during the Christmas holidays, “she added.

Hana Bagárová, for example, will welcome the repair of the building. “It needs to be restored, it looks awful. I’m afraid here, even though I walk around it during the day, “the woman told a reporter for Deník Rovnost on the spot.

The facade of the house and the entrance portal will remain unchanged even after the reconstruction. Likewise, the representatives of Brno-Wednesday do not plan to interfere in its architecture. “On the contrary, we conducted a historic survey of it to find out the original materials used, such as the stone on the facade, and to provide the same material for repair,” Dobešová described.

Before announcing the contract, the representatives of the town hall published various parameters of the repairs of the house, so that the interested parties would get as much information as possible in advance. “The house is managed as an immovable cultural monument and is located in the city’s monument reserve, so certain specifics and conditions must be observed during the reconstruction. It was, for example, information on special, normally unavailable materials and the like, “said Ivo Komárek, Brno-Wednesday councilor for investments.

During the reconstruction, the workers adjust the layout on the first two floors. Tenants had to move out of some residential and non-residential premises because the work would significantly affect them. The tenants are now registered by the representatives of the town hall in thirty-four flats and four non-residential premises.

Representatives of the city district will pay over ninety million crowns without tax for the repairs of the house, which the workers built according to the project of the architect Karel Kotas in 1938 as a commercial, administrative and residential building. The reconstruction will last at least fourteen months, the time scope of work will depend on the schedule agreed with the tenants.
