PROJECT: MULTIFUNCTIONAL CENTRE IN SARANDA
Under UNDP Albania’s request in cooperation with the Municipality of Shijak, we have designed the Implementation-Project and estimate of the Community Center for children with disabilities in Saranda.
The premises of this center are proposed to settle in an existing building 3 floors. Saranda Municipality has made available its second floor. The surface of available floors is 500 m². Existing buildings must adapt and function in accordance with the required facilities of the center. Condition of the building is extremely deteriorated. Problems begin with walls that are damaged in some places, the plaster needs to be repaired, windowsare damaged, as well as doors. The terrace is damaged and therefore has the presence of humidity in the interior premises. This humidity is created as the lack of windows in the third floor. For this reason the building needs complete reconstruction. Based on the issues mentioned above, the implementation project consists of two areas:
1- Adaptation of the existing building facilities for multifunctional centre areas.
2- Full reconstruction of the existing building.
In connection with the adoption the proposed new facilities are as follows:
• Premises of the daily center for children with disabilities
• Premises of apartments for emergencies
The most surface of the floor is occupied from centre for children with disabilities, 445 m². Two mini apartments occupy about 27 m².
Daily center for children with disabilities includes three classrooms / teaching laboratories, a physiotherapy room, a kitchen mealtime and two therapy rooms, two office administrations, a multifunctional hall that will serve for training, events, library, etc. There are also provided two toilets for children, two toilets for staff and a sanitary space for people with disabilities.
There are provided two mini apartments, with separate entrance from the center, with a common sanitary space, for emergencies.
