The municipal spa building in Pilsen had been dilapidated for decades, and in October of last year, the Pilsen region acquired the ownership of the building. The location will undergo a major transformation, a cultural center will be created here. Demolition work should begin soon.
The regional councilors approved the selection of a contractor for the “Municipal spa – demolition work in the yard” worth almost 6 million CZK. They should start by the end of this year.
The Pilsen Region started the tendering process for the above-limit public contract “Municipal spa – demolition work in the yard” on 30 August 2023, the deadline for submitting offers was set for 2 October 2023.
“In the given period, we received a total of three offers, electronically. We are satisfied with the result, we evaluated the participant with the submitted price offer of almost six million crowns as the most advantageous.” Martin Záhoř, deputy governor for the area of social affairs, investments and property, comments on the contract and adds: “The construction site will be handed over immediately after we sign the contract with the contractor and it becomes effective. Then the contractor has 3 months to fulfill the contract, i.e. for the actual demolition in the courtyard.”
After the Pilsen region bought the building of the city spa, it started its revitalization. “I believe that the new path of the spa building, which we have started, will be positively received by the lay and professional public. We all have a common goal, which is to return the historic building to its imaginary shine and combine it with modern usage trends.” says the governor of the Pilsen Region, Rudolf Špoták.
“Our intention is not only to build adequate spaces for the West Bohemian Gallery, but also to build a multifunctional hall for wide use, namely in the historical part of the building, where the swimming pool was located. Organizations dealing with leisure activities for children and youth will also find their space in the former spa complex.” adds the governor.
It was opened on Tuesday, October 25, in front of the building of the West Bohemian Museum in Pilsen exhibition entitled Revitalization of the city spa at the Cultural Center of the Pilsen Region.
