Rīgas namu pārvaldnieks plans to focus on improving technical state of its managed buildings. The company plans to restore several dozen buildings next year and up to 100 buildings a year in the next five years, says RNP chairman Aivars Gontarevs.

If an agreement is reached in the end with apartment owners associations, it will be possible to restore 15% of RNP’s currently managed buildings. This needs to be done because the majority of RNP’s buildings were built in the 70s or 80s.

The chairman notes that the current building restoration order, which includes attraction of EU funding, is long and hard, because up to three years may pass between the beginning and the end of a project. RNP plans to form special renovation models for existing apartment homes, which would allow reducing design and renovation costs.

The decision for restoration of homes using EU funding has so far been made by tenants of only 35 apartment houses managed by RNP. Tenants of another 57 apartment buildings plan to order technical design documents. In total, RNP manages 4,248 houses, Gontarevs notes.
