The grand opening of the RTU laboratory building and Scientific Library building

Today Riga Technical University has ceremoniously opened its newly built laboratory building and Scientific Library building, which are located on the RTU student campus, in Kipsala. “LNK Industries Partnership” carried out the construction of RTU buildings.

The laboratory building will mainly host laboratories of two RTU faculties —Faculty of Power and Electrical Engineering and Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Transport and Aeronautics. Now scientists and students of RTU will be able to fully develop their scientific capacity – modern laboratories will contain all the necessary equipment for complex experimentation. Using this equipment, it will be possible to carry out a competitive scientific activity on an international level, as well as carry out the research for Latvian and foreign enterprises, thus improving Latvia’s competitiveness and ensuring its economic growth.

The grand opening concludes another stage of the RTU student campus’ construction. During this stage, new buildings were constructed and most of the existing RTU faculty buildings in Kipsala were renovated.

«LNK Industries Partnership», which consists of three enterprises – “LNK Industries” JSC, “Latvijas Tilti” JSC and “BCC” LLC – carried out the construction of both RTU buildings.

The grand opening of newly constructed buildings was held on the RTU student campus anniversary, because the construction of RTU territorial complex has begun 50 years ago. Five years ago, with the support of European Regional Development Fund, RTU resumed the renovation of RTU dormitories and construction of new buildings.
