Rilindja Government Building
Rilindja, meaning “rebirth” is a 20-story tall building reconstructed by Mabetex Group consisted in the renovation of all offices and the Governmental main hall. The Rilindja building was initially constructed in 1978 by the then Autonomous Province of Kosovo’s government. The former Rilindja building located on the corner of Garibaldi Street and Luan Haradinaj Street was veiled for construction, after the Mabetex Group, won the government-issued tender for the reconstruction of the building. Mabetex was the only national business to compete in the tender, which included various European construction firms.
300 members of staff have been working three separate shifts for 24 hours a day to complete the building, and it will be completed on time. Mabetex employed hundreds of Kosovars, increasing the social welfare of many families The auditorium was not included in the approved project plan. Instead, Mabetex Group decided to donate it to the government as a gift for their future endeavours. Four elevators bring to the office space, which is surrounded by windows showcasing immaculate views of Kosovo’s capital.
The ceremony of the ribbon-cutting was held in 2010 at the presence of Afrim Pacolli, the Prime Minister of Kosovo Hashim Thaci and President of Kosovo Jakup Krasniqip.
