In the style of minimalism, but with a sauna: the NAF finds modern barracks where our and allied soldiers will live

-

The ceremonial opening of the barracks was attended by the Minister of Defense Artis Pabriks, the NAF Commander Leonīds Kalniņš, the Commander of the Land Forces Mechanized Infantry Brigade Sandris Gaugers, the Commander of the Canadian Armed Forces Representation in Latvia Ēriks Laforē and other invited guests.

The total cost of the construction project is 15.5 million euros, which includes both the construction of the barracks and the purchase of furniture. Approximately € 4.8 million of the costs were covered by funding from the NATO Security Investment Program (NSIP).

Using the international procurement procedure of the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA), the implementation of the project in April 2019 was entrusted to the company JSC “UPB”.

The construction project of the multifunctional barracks uses the standard barracks design developed by the National Defense Military Facilities and Procurement Center (VAMOIC), which has been supplemented and improved with the help of soldiers’ feedback and suggestions.

Each barracks provides equipment storage, classrooms, work rooms, sanitary facilities and accommodation. Each of the barracks is designed to accommodate up to 450 soldiers.

The barracks construction project has been implemented using funding from the NATO Security Investment Program with the aim of ensuring the reception and operation of NATO Allied Forces, including the High Readiness Unit, in Latvia.

This and a number of other projects are the result of the 2014 Welsh and 2016 Warsaw Summits, in which Allies pledged to enhance NATO’s ability to rapidly and expeditiously strengthen the Alliance’s eastern border, if necessary.

The first four-storey barracks at the Ādaži base was opened in December 2018 and the second in July 2019.

Previously, four three-storey barracks have been built at the Ādaži base, where up to 304 soldiers can be stationed in each of them.

The first building of this barracks complex was opened in November 2014, the second in October 2016, and the third and fourth in August 2017.
