From tuesday, 12. June, construction work begins on the main building of the district court in forchheim. They are the prelude to the energetic renovation of the building, initially by replacing the wooden windows that date back to the 1960s. In their place, modern windows with heat-protective glazing and aluminum frames will be installed. These will again be based on the historic appearance of the original windows from the time the court was built at the beginning of the 20th century. Orientation to the twentieth century.
"The old windows have not met the energy requirements for a long time, and they have never been a visual highlight anyway", explains district court director franz truppei. Despite all the joy about the start of construction after a long planning and tendering phase, the replacement of the windows, which is scheduled to take almost four months, is being carried out while the court is still in session.
"A special challenge for the staff, but also for the visitors to the court", announces truppei in the press release. However, every effort will be made to make the work flow as smooth as possible.
However, it will not be possible to avoid certain disruptions, such as the blocking of individual rooms or noise and dirt. In addition, the public parking spaces in front of the kaiserpfalz will be eliminated during the construction phase, with the exception of the handicapped parking space. Barrier-free access to the main building of the district court could not be guaranteed during this time due to the confinement of the building.
Another step towards climate sustainability will be the conversion of the heating system from oil to a heating system with gas condensing technology. All in all, an improvement of the climate balance is expected.
