The total area of the buildings is about 14 thousand square meters
Overhaul of the four buildings of the Botkin Hospital is planned to be completed by the end of 2021, said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Moscow Government for housing and communal services and improvement Peter Biryukov.
“The volume of work performed is quite impressive. The total area of the buildings undergoing overhaul is about 14 thousand square meters, – said Pyotr Biryukov. “All buildings will be completely renovated – from reinforcing floors and re-laying utilities to installing modern elevators and security systems.”
He stressed that work on the repair of objects is being carried out at a high pace.
Now the specialists of the municipal economy complex are completing the construction of new engineering communications. The survey revealed that it is necessary to replace more than 16 kilometers of networks, including nine kilometers of cable, more than four kilometers of heating and about three kilometers of sewer and water supply.
“The buildings are undergoing reinforcement of ceilings and waterproofing, repair of entrance lobbies, replacement of window and door blocks, roofing and internal engineering systems is planned,” noted Pyotr Biryukov. “All four buildings will have the latest elevator equipment, medical gas systems and modern security systems, including security and communication, fire alarm, ventilation and air conditioning.”
At the final stage, high-quality materials are used to decorate the premises; functional zoning will change in some buildings.
For example, building 7 will be redeveloped, since now, instead of the infectious diseases department, it is planned to open a hospital and a department of purulent surgery there.
“The modernization of the Botkin Hospital is one of the largest projects for the creation of a modern multidisciplinary hospital, which is being implemented by the Moscow Government,” stressed Pyotr Biryukov. “By 2023, it is planned to renovate and equip all buildings of this famous Moscow hospital with modern equipment.”
