The general contractor Jánosik és Társai Kft. has received an excellence award for the renovation of Rece-Fice Kindergarten and Manóvár in Kőbánya The prestigious award was granted by the professional jury in the category of public buildings. Awarding was done taking into account the planning, the use of materials and also implementation – said Lajos Jánosik, owner of the contractor company.
In 2017, the Board of Trustees of Construction Industry Master Award (Hungarian abbreviation: ÉMA) announced the Construction Industry Excellence Award competition for the eighteenth time. The reconstruction of a value of HUF 339 million was won by Jánosik és Társai Kft. in an open public procurement tender.
There was a great need for the renovation of the kindergarten and crèche of Kőbánya. Except for the structure, all external and internal parts had to be renewed. The floor plan of the building did not change, but almost everything was replaced or renovated. The roof insulation is new, the doors and windows were replaced, the electrical and mechanical network was modernized and new kitchen technology was incorporated. When designing the facades, a system was selected that could compensate for the deformations of the old frame structure.
According to the opinion of the jury, the new facade made the appearance of the entire facility modern and architecturally valuable. The most important aspect was to create a playful, homey, aesthetic, interesting and stimulating environment for children of different age groups. The colourful and varied design in the indoor and outdoor areas all serve this. Children are awaited by exciting tools in the yards, there is even a small football field with artificial grass. The yard is protected from the noise effects of Vaspálya Street by a soundproof fence. Overall, the reconstruction affects the immediate environment, and looking out of the nearby 7-8-storey buildings, the residents can feel good about the renewed facility. The renovation was carried out with a very short deadline of eight months. This required a very accurate and precise work organization – said Lajos Jánosik.
