A presentation of a demonstrative pilot project for renovation of residential buildings in the city of Tashkent within the framework of PRO HOUSE project was held at the Ministry of Innovative Development of Uzbekistan.
The event was attended by representatives from the Ministry of Housing and Communal Services, the Ministry of Construction, the Association of Professional Managing Companies, and Tashkent Institute of Architecture and Construction. High-ranking Advisor to the Minister Karsten Heinz delivered an opening speech.
It is noteworthy that around 98% of residential buildings belong to the owners in Uzbekistan. Managing apartment buildings suggests a solution of various social, technical, legal, financial and operational tasks. At the same time, a large number of houses and apartments need urgent capital repairs or restoration.
The PRO HOUSE project on professional property management was initiated by the Housing Initiative for Eastern Europe in 2016 in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan in order to strengthen the key structures and improve the energy efficiency of residential buildings in the two republics.
The project is aimed at supporting the efforts of the state authorities of Uzbekistan for improving the quality of housing management and living conditions for people.
Following the meeting, foreign guests offered to hold an international conference on renovation of apartment buildings on PRO HOUSE project in April this year in the Uzbek capital.
