Gdańsk: Renovation of the tenement house at 27 Biskupia St. is underway. The effects are already visible

The eclectic tenement house at 27 Biskupia St. in Gdańsk, in Biskupia Górka, is undergoing extensive renovation, restoring it to its former glory. The investment is being carried out by Gdańskie Nieruchomości as part of the ‘Revitalisation of Biskupia Górka Starego Chełm’ programme, co-financed by the Pomeranian Voivodeship’s Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020.

The building, erected in 1900, is an important element of the historic landscape of Gdańsk and is listed in the Communal Register of Historical Monuments. The tenement houses eight residential units, which will be given a new shine once the renovation work is completed.

The scope of the renovation is extensive and includes horizontal and vertical insulation, making a foundation slab and replacing all the ceilings with new reinforced concrete ones. It also includes new plastering, a roof with wooden rafters and a new staircase modelled on the historic ones. The work also concerns the thermal insulation of the roof, the external walls of the basement and the walls above ground level. As part of the renovation, guttering, downpipes, flashings and window and door joinery are being replaced.
