Welcome to another newsletter where we share with you our work, and a bit about ourselves. A lot of great things have happened since our last newsletter. New projects were taken on, preparing the documentation to bid on some innovative projects and one of our favourite parts – we handed over a nicely done work to the beneficiary. 

Site work visit with stakeholders at the City Hospital Vanju Mare

One of our public projects that we have taken on is a state care hospital in the county of Mehedinti, City Hospital Vanju Mare. The project consists of rehabilitation and modernisation of the existing buildings and expansion, to meet the requirements of the area. The new refurbished hospital will have 60 inpatient beds, as well as outpatient care. Some of the specialities provided will be gynaecology and internal medicine. 

At the end of March, Emilian Calota did a site visit together with stakeholders to see the latest stage of work. We are happy to say that work is going according to plans, and there have been some major progress. The construction of the new unit started and the other two units have made a progress of 70%. 

One of the struggles around the world, not only in Romania, is limited access to healthcare services in remote and rural areas. The rehabilitation of the Vanju Mare hospital will bring European standards healthcare services to people living in surrounding areas, meaning that most of them will be treated locally. 

Media coverage

Last month, Emilian was a guest on Channel 33 where he spoke about CEC Architecture, his career and the connection between architecture and economy. The show called Economy XXI is live and brings on important entrepreneurs of Romanian society to share business related content. 

During the live show, Emilian spoke about the public hospital that is part of our portfolio. More specifically, he mentioned how important it is for people living in that area to have a hospital within a short driving distance, especially in case of a heart attack or a stroke. Interview can be watched here.

Swimming Centre Drobeta Turnu Severin (DTS)

After extensive work to rehabilitate the Olympic swimming centre in DTS, we are happy to announce that the project has reached its final stage and has been handed over to the client. It is one of our public works. The centre holds the largest swimming pool in the area, and is wheelchair accessible. Various sport events will be held.
