This capstone project involved the evaluation and selection of an adequate solution to solving the problem of accommodating the government institutions of Kosovo within the existing infrastructure of Pristina City Center. The Engineering and Building Management (DEBM) within Kosova‟s Ministry of Public Administration (MPA), is competent for resolving the immediate accommodation issue of government employees. Different situations and movements in accommodation have changed the situation regarding building a new compound. A new capacity building has been made from the UNMIK to hold 9% of total employees. The new construction and existing facilities will hold 26%, and in addition “Germia” and “Bankos” also holds 20% (8% and 12% respectively see the figure below). “Rilindja” in addition as a complex together with tower “A” and annexes “B”, “C” and “D” will respectively hold 45% (respectively 16% , 14% and 15%). This accommodation solution fully utilizes City Center locations. Three most significant recommendations are being made in this project: 1. Adapt Rilindja compound facility "B", "C" and build new building "D". 2. To continue accommodation in the existing building in "Bankos" and "Germia". 3. Cost savings from investing within existing infrastructure in the city center.
