The construction of the Vilnius University Faculty of Medicine Science Centre, which began almost a year ago, is gaining momentum. The wreath mounted on the roof of the building symbolises that the major construction work has been completed.

According to the building’s construction manager, Antanas Čirikas, the deadline of 31 October 2022 for this phase of the project has been achieved. Work on the first-floor in relation to the installation of monolithic walls and columns has been completed throughout the development site; the first-floor monolithic slabs have been installed in blocks A, C, D and L and the second-floor monolithic walls and columns and the monolithic slabs have been installed in blocks E and L. The installation of the third-floor monolithic walls and columns was also successfully completed in blocks C and L, and the installation of the monolithic slabs and monolithic walls and columns was completed in block E up to the fourth floor.

During this period, the air intake and exhaust ducts were concreted, the metal columns in A and D blocks were installed, and the staircase of reinforced concrete products in E block as well. Work is currently progressing on the installation of the internal drainage network, the sand layers of the basement floor, the waterproofing and insulation of the basement walls, the masonry of the internal partitions of the first floor of L block, and the drilling of the boreholes for the geothermal heating.

As a reminder, on 3 December 2021, the official launch of the construction of a modern VU Faculty of Medicine Science Centre will be commemorated with a symbolic capsule laying ceremony in Vilnius Santaros Valley, next to the existing Vilnius University Hospital Santaros Clinics (2 Žaliųjų Ežerų Street).

The total cost of this project, which includes the construction of the building and the provision of state-of-the-art scientific equipment, amounts to 47.1 million euros, of which, 33.1 million euros will be covered by the European Regional Development Fund.

The new centre will have specialised scientific laboratories and operating theatres for the Genetic Research Centre, the physiology, biochemistry, microbiology and laboratory medicine, infectious diseases and dermatovenerology, chest diseases, immunology and allergology, dentistry, neurology and neurosurgery, cardiovascular departments and clinics plus a few more, with a total area of about 19 thousand square meters.

It will also accommodate a number of medical study programmes, a simulation centre for the development of practical skills in an environment as close as possible to the real working environment, conference rooms, auditoriums, rooms for conferences, meetings and seminars, offices for researchers and postgraduate students, and rooms for practical classes.

The VU Faculty of Medicine Science Centre project is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. Construction is being carried out by UAB Eikos Statyba.
