The value of the reconstruction contracts is estimated at HRK 944 million, it was said at a meeting of the task force in charge of dealing with the consequences of the December 2020 earthquake in Sisak-Moslavina County.

Gordan Hanžek of the Central State Office for Reconstruction and Housing said at the meeting that non-structural repair work had been completed on 3,222 houses and another 223 that had been repaired by their owners, who were compensated with HRK 6.63 million for that purpose.

Work is still underway on 670 houses, and judging by the dynamic of reconstruction work so far, all family homes from the programme of non-structural reconstruction will be completed before the start of the heating season, Hanžek said.

Speaking of the construction of replacement homes, he said that so far, 87 contracts had been signed and that work was underway on 76 houses. The process of selecting contractors to build an additional 260 houses has been completed, and contracts will be signed soon, he said.

A tender for the seismic retrofitting of housing units will be published in early September. Fifty contracts have been signed for the removal of family houses as a precondition for construction work. So far, around 2,500 units have been removed.

Construction work is also underway on eight apartment buildings in Petrinja and four in Glina, and contracts are to be signed for the construction of two more buildings in Glina and one in Dvor, it was said.

The task force noted that contracts signed under all reconstruction programmes were worth HRK 944 million, plus an additional HRK 469 million envisaged by ongoing tender processes, which is a total of HRK 1.413 billion.

Contracts have also been signed for HRK 4.4 billion from the EU Solidarity Fund for the reconstruction and construction of public facilities and infrastructure.

Deputy Prime Minister Tomo Medved called on all stakeholders in the reconstruction process to step up their activities, notably regarding construction work on housing units whose owners or tenants are still staying in housing containers or mobile homes.
