The Prague City Council Council today approved the results of an open international architectural and urban planning competition for the design of the Administrative and Technical Building of the Emergency Medical Service of the Capital City that had been previously decided by a jury. The winning design was created by a team of architects from the Bratislava-based PLURAL studio. The jury chose from six designs that were shortlisted for the final round. The new ambulance service headquarters in Prosek will include an operations control center, a training center for paramedics, ambulance garages, and other functions.
The new headquarters of the Prague Emergency Medical Service is expected to be completed by 2030. The rescuers are currently based in Korunní Street in a building that they share with Prague’s Municipal Police Department. The new building to be located next to the Prosek Outpatient Clinic will include an operations control center which will answer emergency calls and deal with crisis situations, as well as an education and training facility for paramedics, administrative facilities, and garages for servicing and maintenance of ambulance cars.
