Main indicators:  
Description: This pertains to a partial reconstruction of the building built in the 1930s for the needs of the civil airport Prague at Ruzyně. In a part of the building there is a VPL training centre already in operation and in the part to be reconstructed aircrafts were repaired. The reconstruction will result in extension of the training centre capacity by 5 simulators (not a part of delivery by HOCHTIEF VSB) and the teaching areas for approx. 250 students. After work completion, the areas will be extended in total by approx. 2,500 m2 of floor area.

The works consist in demolition of the existing hangar floors, the 2nd story of the administration built-in system, demolition of the paint shop roof and internal utilities. The building of the former paint shop is newly roofed with panels Partek and one story is built in. In the hangar hall, the administration annex is extended by two stories where there will be classrooms and sanitary facilities. The new three-storey built-in system in the hangar hall will be used as classrooms, engine rooms, stores and computer halls. All built-in systems have steel supporting structure (110 t), covered by trapezoidal sheet and concrete slabs. Other constructions are of masonry and plasterboard, including ceilings. The foundations under the simulators cover 310 m2 of flooring and they were made of 350 m3 of concrete.

In addition, new heating, cooling and air distribution systems, complete heavy-current and light-current wiring systems, surface and floor finishing are being executed in the building. The exterior reconstruction consisted in replacement of windows, facade insulation and a new paint shop roof on which there are cooling and ventilation units. The excavation and foundation works as well as assembly of the steel structure were complicated due to a confined hall area and limited handling of technical facilities related to simultaneous progress of other works.
