Commencement of construction on large annex to the Theoretical Institute in Olomouc

A ceremony was held on Friday, 18 March 2011 on the grounds of the Olomouc Faculty Hospital to mark the commencement of construction on an annex to the Theoretical Institute and the construction of the new Biomedreg Institute of Molecular and Translational Medicine.

The construction of two new buildings for the Institute of Molecular and Translational Medicine and an annex to the Theoretical Institute of the Medical Faculty at Palacký University in Olomouc was launched with the ceremonial laying of foundation stones. The realization of the two projects at a total cost of nearly CZK 2 billion will bolster the prestige of the Olomouc Faculty Hospital. When the projects are finished in a year and a half, the Faculty Hospital will gain state-of-the-art facilities for research and medical student training, raising medicine in Olomouc to a new level.

The buildings were designed by the Olomouc architecture studio of Ateliér R, and the general contractor for both projects is GEMO OLOMOUC, spol. s r.o.
