On 5 August 2015 the University of Warmia and Mazury obtained a permit for introducing changes in the project from the National Fund of Environmental Protection and Water Management. These changes were forced by the lack of conservator's permission to insulate with polystyrene foam the outer walls of one of the 4 buildings included in the project, i.e. the one at ul. Oczapowskiego 5 (New Zootechnics).
In order to inform people about the project and promote it, on 8 July 2015 there was a press conference which introduced the project to the journalists invited to the meeting. At the conference the project, its range and financing were described, and a visualisation of its final effects was demonstrated.
The University of Warmia and Mazury obtained a legally binding permit to carry out the construction, i.e. the thermal efficiency improvement of the buildings. The University also has a permit from the Warmia and Mazury Monuments Conservator to carry out the works, because the buildings are situated in a zone covered by conservator's protection. Additionally, the University obtained the approval and guidelines from the Regional Directorate for Environmental Protection concerning the protection of the buildings against birds' hatchings.
