The project implements unique architectural and designer solutions.

Ballet Raymonda will be Premiered with the Support of Skonto Būve

A new staging of Alexander Glazunov’s Raymonda,produced by choreographer Aivars Leimanis, will be premiered by the Latvian National Ballet on 27 March. The new staging has been created with the support of the patron of ballet – Guntis Rāvis and Skonto Būve SIA.

Chairman of SIA Skonto Būve, Guntis Rāvis: “I take pride in recommending productions of the Latvian National Ballet both to my friends and foreign business partners. Skonto Būvehas been a reliable patron of the Latvian National Ballet for many years already. Reasons for successful cooperation may be found in the similar attitude towards work and quality of the results that we share, as well as the desire to stand out from the everyday plainness, constantly raising the bar of greatness."

Choreographer of the new staging, Aivars Leimanis: “The new production of Raymonda is an old dream coming true - finally our repertoire includes all of the most famous and frequently staged major classical ballets. Even more – the dancers, costumes, and scenography in our productions are at such a high visual and technical level that we can easily perform on all of the greatest stages in the world with pride.”

Rafter Raising Ceremony at the New Terminal of Riga International Airport

Skonto Būve held a rafter raising ceremony at Riga International Airport, which is currently undergoing the construction of a new terminal. Along with the completion of the frame construction, the new building has now reached its highest point.

Besides the frame construction, the monolithic reinforced concrete covering has been completed as well. The façade has been finished for half of the building, and the arrangement of utilities is under the way.

The 1st phase in the airport's terminal development will provide the expansion of the non-Schengen area and four additional boarding sectors, which will improve the quality of the services provided by the airport. After its completion, the new terminal building will be able to service larger aircraft, thus increasing the capacity of the airport.
