ZAGREB, April 21 (Hina) – Karlovac County authorities on Tuesday presented the Nikola Tesla Experience Centre, which is being built by the Karlovac High School, on the occasion of World Creativity and Innovation Day.
Damir Pintaric, director of the AB construction company in charge of the project, said that the centre has a gross area of 750 square metres.
The contractor is currently building partition walls and will soon start installation works and work on the roof and facade.
Pintaric said that in the current situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the company had to reduce the number of workers and introduce anti-epidemic measures.
Deputy county head Martina Furdek Hajdin expressed hope that the new centre would be a place where young people would find the inspiration to be innovative and creative, the more so as Tesla attended the Karlovac High School.
The project is worth HRK 15 million and its first stage will be completed by September.
Furdek Hajdin said that money for the completion of the project was expected to come from the EU’s next financial perspective.
The county has secured HRK 9.6 million for the project, including one million from the Ministry of Culture.
