On 13 May 2021, VSIA Rīgas cirks and Aidaco Group entered into a contract to reconstruct the building of Rīgas cirks (Riga Circus). Contract value: EUR 3,201,364.43 + VAT.
The project is vital because it involves reconstructing an architectural monument of national significance (namely, the historically significant and unique Rīgas cirks building). These works will notably improve the architectural landscape of the historic centre of Riga.
The main operations of the project are related to raising the energy efficiency of the circus building: insulation of the attic flooring and dome, installation of a centralised ventilation system, insulation of the façade walls towards the yard, replacement of the existing windows and doors, reconstruction and modernisation of the heating system and heating unit, and renovation and upgrading of the power supply system.
