Santo Domingo.- The country’s top cement maker Cemex Dominicana is conducting a pilot project to build 330 houses available at a 15% lower cost than in the current real estate market.
Quoted by hoy.com.do, Cemex Dominicana director Carlos González said the company aims to motor socially oriented housing, for which offered its experience and high quality products at the disposal of developers and promoters.
“Our interest is to work hand in hand with promoters and builders to channel resources, technology and technical knowledge to develop housing of a social interest through alliances, providing advice, experience and by introducing constructive systems and financial formulas to benefit developers as the final buyer, promoting the construction of viable communities with more accessible housing which bolster the community’s quality of life,” González said.
He said Cemex is currently building a housing project in San Pedro de Macorís, to showcase a proposal of a viable community, developed for families of low income.
The executive said the urban planning model goes beyond the mere construction of houses since it integrates the basic services to achieve a better standard of living. “The project which we’ve called Altos del Higuamo is developed with an industrialized, accelerated construction system, with the advantages of a highly optimized constructive process that lowers waste and standardizes quality, as well as a faster execution that leads to lower costs.”
