«We want to generate housing supply in central sectors of the city, close to study and work centers,» said José Antonio Solares from the Accessible Housing Development of Cementos Progreso.
That’s why it seeks to address the challenges of the country facing the problem of unattainable housing, launching the initiative «Let’s Improve Homes», a program to improve the quality of life of many Guatemalans through the remodeling of their houses, thus seeking to reduce the qualitative housing deficit.
Together with this initiative, the innovative concept of Sustainable Integrated Housing Urban Modules (MUVIS) was created, which generates low-cost urban housing. This model of housing is accessible to multiple families who previously did not have urban housing opportunities.
One of the main achievements for Cementos Progreso was the completion of the «Trasciende» project and another located in Atanasio Tzul with 300 apartments. Both made under the Urban Model of Sustainable Integrated Housing (MUVIS).
