  • OEC builds schools in Belo Horizonte again through PPP

    Published by: OEC

    After having built 51 schools as part of the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) for Education formed by SPE Inova BH and Belo Horizonte City Hall, OEC is once again building educational centers in the capital of Minas Gerais.

    The Cabana Municipal Nursery School is the first of four units to be delivered by the OEC in this new phase. The second project, EMEI Havaí, is due to start this April. The other schools to be built are the Betânia and Capitão Eduardo EMEIs. The new units are expected to offer around 1,500 new places, in addition to the more than 25,000 already created by the schools delivered by the PPP.

    The schools are built using Light Steel Frame technology, a structure that allows for faster and cleaner construction work, with greater ease of execution and maintenance. The structure is made of galvanized steel profiles and finished with plasterboard and cementitious tiles. Buildings made with this construction system are more sustainable, as most of the raw materials used are recycled. Also, in these buildings, water consumption is almost non-existent.

     

    Health centers also make progress

    The OEC’s partnership with SPE Saúde BH for the construction of Health Centers in Belo Horizonte continues to progress. Between 2019 and 2023, 48 units have already been delivered, using the same construction technology as the schools. The method makes construction work more sustainable, efficient and less wasteful.

    The construction of five health centers is currently underway: Horto, Conjunto Santa Maria, Heliópolis, Diamante and Dom Orione. Construction is due to start on another six new units in the coming months: Céu Azul, Independência, Alameda dos Ipês, Nova York and Minas Caixa.

    The Public-Private Partnership (PPP) for Health in Belo Horizonte will enable more than 1 million inhabitants of the capital to be served by the new centers.

    Each center has 17 consultation rooms for general care, including waiting rooms, triage, procedures, dressing, collection, vaccination, hygiene, multipurpose space, pharmacy, zoonosis area and administrative sectors. There will also be a dentist’s office with six chairs. The aim is to offer complete and integrated facilities to meet the diverse health needs of the community.

    The Health Centers project built by OEC received international recognition when it was awarded in the “Health Care” category in the renowned Global Best Projects, awarded by the North American specialist magazine, ENR – Engineering News-Record.

     

    Materials and Laboratory Center

    This April, the OEC began construction of the Sterile Materials Center and Laboratory, which will unify the service to all the Health Centers in the capital. The work will be carried out using a precast concrete structure and will have a built-up area of approximately 4,500 square meters, distributed over two floors and a semi-underground floor.
