Boosting Lithuanian building standards
ERDF-funded quality control reviews will be carried out on renovated buildings in the Baltic country over the next three years
Lithuania’s State Territorial Planning and Construction Inspectorate (VTPSI) has begun the implementation of an ERDF-funded project entitled ‘Maintenance and control of the quality of construction of modernized buildings’. It aims to ensure a higher standard of renovations of apartment and public buildings across the Baltic republic.
The roughly 2 500 inspections will take place over the next three years, representing an annual increase of 800 individual reviews.
With some residents of apartment buildings suspicious of the quality of recently-carried out renovation work, the detailed inspections coupled with more intensive maintenance are expected to reduce the likelihood of hidden defects.
