Construction of a temporary canteen Albertov
The reason for the construction of the temporary canteen is that one of the buildings of the future Albertov Campus (Biocentre building) has an existing canteen, which will have to be demolished before the main construction work begins. For this reason, during the construction of the Albertov Campus, it is necessary to provide substitute catering for both students and staff attending lunch at this existing canteen. Two options were considered:
1) using the catering facilities around the Albertov Campus
2) construction of our own temporary canteen in Albertov.
After evaluating all the pros and cons of both variants, it was decided in the favor of building of the temporary canteen, with the location being on the grounds of the Convent of the Elizabeth Sisters, specifically in their garden adjacent to the existing canteen. This will ensure that the existing walking distance to the canteen remains the same.
Due to the excavations being planned to start in about the second half of 2020, it will be necessary to build the temporary canteen by the end of the 2019/2020 school year in order to make it operational during the summer holidays and to be fully operational at the beginning of the new school year 2020. It is expected that this temporary canteen will be used from the beginning of the 2020/2021 school year probably up until 2023, when the new permanent canteen will be opened as part of the completed Albertov Campus.
The temporary canteen will take a form of a single-storey building consisting of several interconnected cells. This solution is both very economical and flexible to adjustments. Moreover, the actual construction is simple and fast without major demands for the site preparation.
