Passerinvest has operatively built the temporary Roztyly Community Centre in the former Interlov slaughterhouse complex in Prague – Roztyly for mothers and children from Ukraine. They will be able to find suitable facilities here for babysitting, social and leisure activities with opportunities for education and inclusion in social and support programmes. The project is being created in cooperation with the Prague 11 City District and the Help Ukraine Endowment Fund, which will subsequently manage and operate this space. The total investment into the facility comprised of 26 modular cells (the purchase, transportation, adjustment of terrain in the locality, etc.) amounted to more than CZK 8 million. The handover for use to the Help Ukraine Endowment Fund and the actual start of operations should take place by the end of April.
The assembly work began on 29. 3. 2022, when a fleet of seven fully loaded lorries arrived at the premises with the necessary modules and assembly materials. Another six lorries arrived the following day, and the construction was completed the very same day by Koma Modular s.r.o., which is the supplier of the modules. The other work, such as the utility connections, foundations for the modules, landscaping, etc. is covered by GEMO a.s. The entire building is made up of a modular set of 26 individual modules and will serve as a non-profit and non-commercial facility. It is now being fitted out with the necessary furnishings, while the surrounding terrain is being landscaped.
“We are not indifferent to the current events in Ukraine and we feel a very intensive need to help. With the Roztyly Community Centre project, we want to provide mothers and their children with a quality and functional facility that could help them to cope with this difficult situation as much as possible. I am very glad that the whole project is being implemented relatively quickly. Now all that is left is to add the furnishings. On behalf of the whole company, I would like to thank all those involved in the project, without whom the implementation would have taken much longer,” stated Martin Unger, Technical Director, Passerinvest Group, a.s.
“I truly appreciate the involvement of Passerinvest Group and other suppliers, in short, all the people who are involved in this project. It is almost unbelievable that it was possible to arrange such a facility for mothers with children in record time. I am looking forward to seeing the Roztyly Community Centre get off the ground and conjuring smiles on children’s faces,” added Vladimír Gergel, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Help Ukraine Endowment Fund.
“Many companies, businesses and institutions participated in this project, helping us without hesitation in a number of technical and legislative areas. In particular I would like to thank the companies GEMO a.s., KOMA MODULAR s.r.o., Pronto Elektro Praha s.r.o., Pražské vodovody a kanalizace, a.s., Ateliér A8000 s.r.o. and Ing. Vladimír Malý for the engineering. A special thank you, of course, belongs to the Prague 11 City District, the Help Ukraine Endowment Fund and the participating state administration authorities,” added Martin Unger.
