Before the start of reconstruction and rebuilding in 1994, VELVE made the biggest contribution by strengthening the building foundation with drilled piles and a concrete "belt". The steep roof was restored according to early drawings. With an area of 9,000 square metres, Jēkaba Kazarmas is one of the largest reconstruction projects in Latvia that today has become an interesting office, restaurant, and shopping centre.
