This is an exemplary renovation. Former hospital in Wrocław with award

A few years ago, the former hospital on Hoena-Wrońskiego Street in Wrocław was bought by the Wrocław University of Technology, which renovated the building and adapted it to the needs of the university.The renovation of the historic complex won an award in the Lower Silesian Construction of the Year competition

The Lower Silesian Construction of the Year competition is organised by the Polish Union of Building Engineers and Technicians. Its 18th edition has just finished. The renovation of the former hospital won an award in the category ‘Revitalisation and revitalisation of historic buildings’

The award-winning building is a complex of two buildings with a connecting passage. Its design was carried out by the famous German architect Max Berg. He is the same architect who designed, among other things, Centennial Hall. The hospital building was constructed in two stages. First, the main building was constructed between 1910 and 1911, followed by a smaller building and a link between the two

Years ago, the building housed the Municipal Children’s Hospital, and after World War II a clinic of the Medical University was established there. The clinic was moved to another facility in 2015, and the building was then put up for sale

The new owner was the Wrocław University of Technology, which carried out a major renovation. During the works, the façade was renovated, the roof was replaced and partial thermo-modernisation was carried out. Importantly, the stuccowork in the halls was restored and the sculpture above the main entrance, which was designed and made by sculptor Alfred Vocke, was renovated. The building opened after the renovation in March 2023. It now houses the Faculty of Mathematics and the Faculty of Medicine of Wrocław University of Technology. The renovation and fit-out of the facility cost PLN 50 million. The design for the redevelopment of the building was prepared by the DEMIURG studio

The Lower Silesian Construction of the Year competition has been held since 1999. Its aim is to promote Polish architecture and construction, investors, developers and other companies associated with the industry. In the competition, the jury pays attention to the quality and pace of the work, the organisation of the construction process and the technological solutions used

Such a broad spectrum of assessment means that the level of the competition is getting higher every year, and the best designers, contractors and investors are competing. The competition is also a confirmation of the ever-increasing level of creative thought among architects and construction engineers, as well as among Polish contractors,” emphasises Janusz Superson, Chairman of the Wrocław Branch of the Polish Association of Engineers and Technicians
