Cemex supplies construction solutions for military complex
Published by Rebecca Bowden,
Cemex has supplied tailor-made construction solutions and service for the new 4th Military Police Brigade complex in North Mexico, in the State of Nuevo Leon.
MXN$392 million has been invested in the complex, which encompasses general headquarters, three military police battalions, a special operations battalion, as well as parking lots, dormitories, warehouses, roads, dining rooms, workshops, a dog training unit and a sports complex.This is the first time the Mexican government has worked with civil society under military command to build military facilities.
A rigorous 365 day plan was developed by the Secretariat of National Defense, who was in charge of the work, in order to complete the required 58 000 m2. The project involved more than 1000 military and civilian workers labouring seven days a week to meet the ambitious deadlines.
“We looked for a company capable to promptly supply services and materials at all times,” said General Gustavo Ricardo Vallejo Suarez, officer responsible for the project, “having such an ally helped us to be on time during the construction.”
Nearly 2900 t of cement and approximately 30 800 m3 of concrete were supplied for the project, while an agreement between Sedena and Cemex meant that a Block Auto Production Centre was installed in which the 890 000 pieces of block, Adocrete, and thick brick partisan used in the new facilities were produced.
A wastewater treatment plant and a solar photovoltaic field, along with environmental work, were included in the project to promote its sustainability.
The new complex was inaugurated earlier this year.
