Bludenz. There is great joy on World Children’s Day at the elementary school in Bludenz Mitte. The excavators started rolling and the long-awaited groundbreaking ceremony for the structural expansion took place.

In order to create more space and freedom for the approximately 300 Bludenz students and around 30 teachers, the school building is now being expanded in its previous form.

The ground-breaking ceremony for the expansion of the Mitte elementary school was celebrated together with the Vice President of the State Parliament, Monika Vornier, Mayor Simon Tschann, architect Bernhard Marte, elementary school director Manuela Schmidle, the pupils of the elementary school in Mitte and an ensemble from the municipal music school in Bludenz. With a construction sum of around 22 million euros, the conversion of the middle school represents the largest building construction project in the city of Bludenz. We invest in space for education and give the Bludenz elementary school students a stimulating and contemporary learning environment,” says Mayor Simon Tschann happily.

The characteristic school building of the elementary school in Mitte with the picturesque Plettenberg Park is considered one of the most expressive buildings in the city. Young Bludenzers have been taught in the building since 1886. Now it is bursting at the seams and has reached its capacity limit.

The architectural office Marte.Marte was able to convince with the design of the extension. A new place for education and support is being created and combines tradition with modernity. The currently L-shaped wing will be expanded by its shape. Detailed information about the construction project can be found on the information screen of the container, opposite the music school in Bludenz. This also provides information about the current construction progress. You can also follow the development of the building thanks to a live camera track. The building contract went to the regional company Tomaselli Gabriel Bau GmbH. Among the invited guests were Father Guido, former mayor Mandi Katzenmayer, building construction committee chairman Joachim Weixlbaumer, numerous city councillors, the managing director of Tomaselli Gabriel Bau GmbH, Barbara Tomaselli, and many more.
