Adem Zalihić, director of the Institute for Emergency Medical Aid of Sarajevo Canton, confirmed this information to us and said that he had recently held a meeting with representatives of the Institute for the Construction of KS to discuss this topic.
He said that such an endeavor has been planned for a long time, considering that certain installations, as well as carpentry and other parts of this building, are quite dilapidated.
“The building in which the Institute for Emergency Medical Aid KS is located is quite old, so it is necessary to start its adaptation and reconstruction. For example, all installations in our building are almost unusable so the building is, in a way, totally unprofitable in terms of energy. As for the glassware, we have almost 5,000 square meters of glass on the building that needs to be replaced. Also, we want to bring oxygen to every screen in our facility, which is extremely important in severe cases, and to form an oxygen, ie a room for storing oxygen, "said Zalihic.
He added that 50,000 KM has already been secured for the preparation of project documentation, while two million KM is planned for the reconstruction. According to some rough estimates, the beginning of works on the renovation of this building is expected at the beginning of next year.
"It is very important to emphasize that we will not only do the internal reconstruction, we will also start the external reconstruction, and we thought to change the function of the land that is in our ownership. Namely, we planned to make a special exit for our vehicles towards Ložionička Street in order to provide the service as quickly as possible. However, when it comes to working on the outside itself
the appearance of the building will not change drastically as it is copyrighted, but we will certainly work on refreshing it ", stressed the director of the Public Institution Ambulance KS.
