LDK Consultants supporting the energy efficiency rehabilitation of public buildings in Moldova starting with the rehabilitation of six kindergartens

LDK Consultants, as lead technical assistance partner of the project; “Support to procurement; implementation and monitoring of Energy Efficiency projects in Chisinau and Yerevan” is assisting EIB and the municipalities of Chisinau (Moldova) and Yerevan (Armenia) in finalizing the pilot investment programme of energy efficiency rehabilitation of public buildings in the two municipalities.  
As part of this project; LDK Consultants provided procurement support for the selection of the Design & Built services contractor for the energy rehabilitation of six kindergartens in Chisinau; as part of the first tranche of public buildings that will undergo energy efficiency rehabilitation.

On the 1st of October 2020; the Municipality of Chisinau signed the first procurement contract for the provision of Design & Build services with the selected contractor in an official signing ceremony.
The project co-financed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) (Lead Financier); the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environment Partnership (E5P) will provide a total of €25 million for the energy efficiency rehabilitation of public buildings in Chisinau.

Within the next twelve months; deep rehabilitation and renovation works including energy efficiency and renewable energy integrated measures will be carried out in the six kindergartens; such as external insulation; replacement of windows and doors; installation of mechanical ventilation systems with heat recovery; smart meters and much more.  It is expected that after the implementation of the energy efficiency measures in the kindergartens; an annual monetary energy savings of approximately €150;000 per year will be achieved. The rehabilitated buildings will also have a lower energy consumption; thus contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and also provide a healthier and more comfortable environment for children and teachers with improved indoor air quality and warmer indoor temperatures during winter. - Bottom info
