The Institute for the Care of Mother and Child has modernized its heating system utilizing the EPC method pursuant to the corresponding approval of the Ministry of Health. The project included rebuilding of the boilers in the boiler room from steam to hot-water. New hot-water distribution lines have been installed to the newly built transfer stations of buildings A, B, C and D and of the administrative building. New panel heating units with thermostatic valves and heads have been installed. The entire system is controlled by Siemens Desigo PX regulation. It is monitored in the control room. Almost 1,000 windows have been replaced in the historically protected building.
