Highlight for the action of São Paulo office
The headquarters of the constructor held its action in a public space of the city, in line with the Master Plan goals of São Paulo City. The work aimed at the revitalization of a public square in Vila Nova Jaguaré, west region of São Paulo.
The place was being used as a parking lot, but the population organized a few years ago to turn it into an environment of coexistence for residents. “There was a Telecenter which offered computer courses to the community, but the project was closed and the space was unassisted. Be part of the dream of that community in a move of urban redevelopment that is taking place in São Paulo was our great booster”, says Priscila Leão, administrative assistant of the Constructor and one of the organizers of the action.
Among the works performed were the painting of a block on the site, placing of apparels within the space, the construction of a park with tires and various recreational activities such as kite workshop.
