The aim of the project is to increase energy efficiency and improve energy management in the Latvian Puppet Theatre building at Kr.Barona iela 14/16, Riga. At the same time, the aesthetic and technical condition of the building will be significantly improved; it will fit more organically into the urban environment.

Exterior walls, base, attic and roof of the building will be insulated, windows and wooden exterior doors will be replaced, the existing heating unit will be modernised, the heating system will be rebuilt and modernised, the existing ventilation system will be reconstructed.

The performed reconstruction works and energy efficiency measures will increase the level of comfort in the premises of the Latvian Puppet Theatre. Employees of the Theatre will get a more comfortable and positive work environment, and spectators will find it more pleasant to attend the performances. The used heat energy will decrease significantly - by at least 31% per year, thus the theatre will be able to pay less for utilities (heat and electricity) and save financial resources. In turn, all residents of Riga and guests of the city will get an arranged outdoor space.

The key to the success of the energy efficiency improvement project is a competent and interested team, which includes not only the customer, but also the User, which jointly creates an orderly environment for the youngest theatre lovers. Healthy environment - we are healthy, our way of thinking and our kids Finally, “freshness” will flow into the Latvian Puppet Theatre, which will definitely further promote the creativity of our artists.
