Grupo Argos delivered new homes to five families from the Siete Vueltas district, in the municipality of San Juan de Urabá, Antioquia. This project was possible thanks to the solidarity of the company’s shareholders, who, instead of receiving the traditional gift at the General Shareholders’ Meeting, chose to execute a project with high impact and social benefit.
The houses delivered by Grupo Argos are equipped with three bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, a bathroom, a clothing patio, a terrace and a waiting area for livestock. Its construction was carried out under a sustainable model developed by Cementos Argos in which it seeks to take advantage of natural lighting and distribute the spaces to meet the needs of rural families.
