Kosovo rebuilding

  • Comment

The dti's Kosovo regeneration taskforce, chaired by Ove Arup & Partners' Nigel Thompson, met this week and is to fly out on Sunday with dti minister John Battle to assess damage. It ranges from pulverised villages to one-off demolitions - building firms will be chosen through ojec notices and funded by the eu. However, Kosovo was not as badly hit as first feared and there was more work for 'B&Q than Brown & Root contractor', Thompson said. Many of the homes are self-built. The taskforce may extend into Macedonia, Albania and Serbia with major town re-building for architects and town planners. The force was not 'ambulance-chasing', he said. The riba has not been approached by the taskforce.
