Vl/ House renovation

vlad2
Vladaya Project was a renovation of a house built in the 70-ties in the outskirts of the capital of Bulgaria – Sofia, next to the mountain Vitosha. The quality of the construction is rather poor, but luckily the house is built on a rock, which makes it earthquake resistant. And even after a severe earthquake it is still in a good condition. Despite this a lot of work needs to be done. The construction works are ongoing and done step-by-step. A major problem was the lack of hydro insluation on the terraces and several rooms have molded walls and ceilings. Therefore the reconstruction started with putting some hydro and thermal insulation on the terraces. I did detailed step-by-step schedule for the needed works so the owners can acomplish them when they have the resources. The other main intervention will be insulating the roof. It has been renovated recently, but the insulation is compromised and quite old. On the first floor the rooms will have minor changes in the space distribution and new gypsum board walls will be build. At the moment the external walls are carrying the roof and the span between the walls is quite big. For this reason aditional columns supporting the roof beams will be installed in the new gypsum board walls. Since the owners needed to make an approximate estimation of the cost of the reconstruction, I did for them detailed BoQ and preliminary budget estimation.
