Facade greening and new roof colour - Social complex Fregestraße 3


Mr Volkmer

Brief description of the proposal

The increasing heat of the last few years is causing a lot of heat in the concrete blocks. The social complex at Fregestraße 3 is poorly insulated and at the mercy of the heat from direct sunlight. The building houses a large kindergarten, a youth centre and two other social services. Demonstrably effective heat protection on the upper floors could be achieved by greening the façade and painting the roof a lighter colour. The project could serve as a model for other similar buildings.


approx. 10.000 €

Statement of the administration

Unfortunately, the proposal does not comply with the rules for the citizens' budget and can therefore not be put to the vote.

The property at Fregestraße 3 is owned by the Eigenbetrieb Kommunale Immobilien Jena. An Eigenbetrieb cannot be a beneficiary of the citizens' budget. As part of the investigation into the heat load at Kitas and schools in 2017, numerous recommendations for action were made, including for this property. KIJ is currently engaged to develop an action plan to implement the findings of this study. The financial resources are to be included in the KIJ business plan.
