Basement renovation at Museum of Koprivnica completed

As part of the reVITAlize project, works were carried out on the rehabilitation of moisture and the reconstruction of the basement of the building of the Museum of the City of Koprivnica. The Museum building was built around 1680 and was occasionally extended until the middle of the 19th century. The building has the status of an individual protected immovable property at the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia under the code Z-2795. Seen from the aspect of dilapidation and damage to individual structural elements, as well as from the energy aspect and heat conservation, the building was in a rather poor condition. The building of the Museum, also called the "Old Magistrate" in professional circles, is a building with an irregular U-shaped floor plan. The building consists of a basement, ground floor, first floor and attic. The "reVITAlize" project covered only the first two phases of the renovation of the Museum building:

PHASE I: Drainage of the external walls of the building and interruption of capillary moisture by injecting the basement walls and

PHASE II: Rehabilitation of the basement in its entirety (floors, walls, ceilings, openings).
The building is made in the classic way of construction with solid walls of solid brick of the old
format, wooden and vaulted ceiling constructions, classic wooden roof and tiles
as a cover.

Contractor coARt d.o.o. work began on March 1, 2021, and work was completed in late December last year. The value of contracted works amounted to HRK 1,831,176.00.
