The main industrial regions in Slovakia are reporting a lack of accommodation capacity for workers. These are in the vicinities of industrial and logistics parks mostly along highways connecting Bratislava with Košice (D1), leading from Bratislava to the Czech Republic (D2) and the dual carriageway from Trnava to Banská Bystrica (R1).

“For the time being there are five projects for staff quarters of a modern standard under preparation,” said Tomáš Ostatník from the department of industrial real estate at CBRE Slovensko, adding that these should add about 2,500 beds, although the company does not have exact data about the number of existing accommodation facilities and their capacities in Slovakia.

The standard of modern staff quarters for workers in the automotive industry should include sports facilities as well as space where the workers can spend their free time. The minimal accommodation space per person should start at 8.5 square metres.

For developers it is more advantageous to build an accommodation facility as a brand-new construction in order that they can adapt it to current accommodation standards as well as their requirements and financial conditions.

Towns and cities in Slovakia perceive the building of staff quarters as an opportunity for another development. They provide an additional source of finance including the accommodation tax, concluded Ostatník.
