The conceptual design of Radnicki’s facade will be provided by 4 domestic bureaus

Until March 10, four well-known architectural bureaus from Novi Sad and Belgrade will present their facade solutions.

At the end of December, the Novi Sad company Vega IT bought the building of the Workers’ University, at a public auction, at a starting price of about 5.2 million euros. The fact that this IT company already exists shows that they want to move into it as soon as possible announced a call for competition to which she invited four well-known domestic bureaus.

How u the interview says Sasa Popovic, The CEO of Vega IT, announced a call for tenders in order to get the best solution for Radnički’s facade. Do March 10 Kuzmanov and partners from Novi Sad, Zabriskie Studio from Belgrade, Remorker Architects from Belgrade and Synthesis Quatro from Novi Sad will send their solutions.

Kuzmanov and partners, Zabriskie Studio, Remorker Architects and Synthesis Quatro are participating in the invitation competition.

The winner will get the opportunity to further develop his idea, and the remaining three bureaus will receive consolation prizes, says Popović and adds that all four architectural bureaus gladly accepted the invitation to participate. “After the competition, we plan to announce the winner, as well as the other three solutions.” – says Popović.

Popović further states that in parallel with this competition, they are actively working on other important steps necessary to turn this idea into reality and make this building serve its purpose. “When all the projects are finished and we get all the necessary permits, we plan to let’s start the reconstruction. ” – says the owner of Vega IT.

Why an invitation competition

“We liked the idea of ​​the competition because in this way we have the opportunity to get some interesting solutions, considering that several teams are practically competing with each other.” – adds Popović and adds that the reason why they decided that it should be an invitation competition is only because they wanted to devote enough time to each team who participates in the project in order to achieve the best possible results.

“We had several meetings with each of the four teams – we went through the building and analyzed all the things we need to pay extra attention to. Simply put, if the competition had been open, we would not have been able to achieve all that with a large number of teams. ” – says Popović.

Popovic says that they have big plans for further growth and development of Vega IT, so this reconstruction of the “Radnicki” building will help them turn those plans into reality.

“We plan to stay in the current business space in Novi Sad, which is also in our ownership, and to further expand into a new building. Probably some of our daughter companies will move to “Radnicki” upon completion of the reconstruction. ” – concludes Popović.

Let us remind you, the building of the former Workers’ University “Radivoje Ćirpanov” burned down in fire on April 6, 2000.
