Prague, Czech Republic
Studying in the heart of Bohemia
22 February 2011: the President of the Czech Republic Václav Klaus cuts the red ribbon at the gala event for the inauguration of the new building of the Prague Technical University.
Located on the Dejvice campus, alongside buildings designed by architects F. Cermak and G. Paul (awarded prizes in the 1950s and 1960s), it accommodates 2,100 people including 1,800 students from the faculties of architecture and information technologies. With three subterranean floors and 8 upper floors, the brand new premises comprise 42,000 m² and contain four lecture theatres with a maximum capacity of 300 people, four fully-equipped seminar rooms, classrooms, workshops and offices.
This construction is the biggest investment made by the Prague Technical University in the last 35 years. Today it is used by around 23,000 Czech and international students.
Recognised expertise. With this contract, the Czech subsidiary VCES confirmed its expertise in university buildings: it had already completed the construction faculty premises, student accommodation and the national technical library.
