Main indicators:  
Description: This project consists of three constructions and is divided into two stages. Stage One comprises the reconstruction of the House of Army in Prague and includes the construction of a communication corridor between the General Staff and the House of Army in Prague.

Stage Two deals with the reconstruction of the facilities of the General Staff of the Army.

The construction works themselves within the scope of reconstruction will follow after elimination and disconnection of all installations, including disassembly of the interior equipment and the technologies used so far, for example the air-conditioning system, etc.

The works within the scope of Stage One will proceed gradually until May 2007. The beginning of the next stage is scheduled for October 31, 2006 and its completion is presumed in July 2008.

Due to technological and technical obsolescence of the buildings, restoration of cabling, air-conditioning, roof and other elements on the building will have to be made to comply with up-to-date standards. The reconstruction will lead to energy savings, lower operational costs and better ecological operation of the buildings.
