Horoměřice expanded the capacity of preschool facilities
Horoměřice village expanded capacity of its preschool facilities. On Saturday, 2 October, a new nursery school was officially opened here.
"The main reason for building a new nursery school was a long-term backlog of demand for placement of children," said Mayor Václav Kášek. The current nursery school for 70 children uses premises in the building of elementary schools and it is not possible to increase its capacity. In the past two decades, the population in Horoměřice is growing in context of new construction of houses and apartment buildings. "New residents are mostly young families with children. This is the reason why the number of refused children was growing every year. Even after opening the new building we are still missing 40 places, "said Kášek.
In origin, it was planed to build a new nursery school for 150 children. It would be consist of three pavilions with six classrooms and a central building with kitchen, dining room and technical facilities. Regarding the fact that the municipality had failed to obtain the necessary funds from the Regional Operational Programme Infrastructure, it was decided to buidt another variant with construction of one pavilion from our own resources. "The new school represents an investment of nearly CZK 28 million," concluded Kášek.
The capacity of new pavilion is 50 children. Building a new nursery school has two identical floors, each has its own dressing room, playroom, study and social facilities. Inner and outer space, then connects the outdoor wooden terrace. A wooden construction system makes this building realy exceptional. The largest rooms (playrooms and offices) have rich fenestration with roller blinds and shades to increase the comfortable of being and the efficiency of solar energy.
The architectural design of a new nursery school prepared Ing. Ondřej Šmejkal and Ing. arch. Michal Širmer. The construction realized VCES a.s. according to the project made by studio HLAVÁČEK & Partner, s.r.o. "The new nursery school was built up during the last four months," said during the ceremony Vladimír Ujec, HR Director of VCES. "This short term was allowed thanks to the technology of using wooden sandwich panels," Ujec approached the construction details.
