The aim of the project is to increase energy efficiency and improve energy management in the Valmiera Drama Theatre building at Lāčplēša iela 4, Valmiera.

The roof and attic of the building will be insulated, base, external walls, existing wooden and PVC windows will be replaced, exterior doors, heating system will be improved, ventilation and cooling system will be created, lighting fixtures (including floodlights) will be replaced with energy efficient ones.

The energy efficiency measures taken will increase the level of comfort in the premises of Valmiera Drama 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 49% per year, thus the theatre will be able to pay less for utilities (heat and electricity) and save financial resources. Residents of Valmiera and guests will get a modern and attractive environment.

It is a big challenge for Valmiera Theatre - to return to the reconstruction phase, at least in part. We hope that after the reconstruction, the theatre will be able to be proud of the fact that it has become more environmentally friendly, maintenance costs will be reduced and the interior will be more homely. Behind every novelty that has been announced is our hopes for Valmiera Theatre's ability to increase capacity and to work more efficiently, saving people's work and thinking about spectators and art, without spending as much time on everyday life as it does now.

director of Valmiera Drama Theatre
