The construction work for the Belo Monte Plant, located in Pará, are just beginning, but the lodging and residential villages at the development already reflect the environmental concern of the Construction Consortium – of which Odebrecht Energia is part. The spaces are being developed with a new construction technology that uses non-polluting raw material and allows for the reuse of the materials in other developments.
The buildings have a collapsible metal structure, are sealed and have roofs made from modular isothermal panels and thermo-acoustic composition to guarantee the workers’ comfort. This type of construction offers a reduced cost and allows for the fast assembly and disassembly of areas such as offices, lodgings, cafeterias and homes.
The residential villages at Belo Monte will have main accessways, with paved streets that will connect the public areas, such as service plazas, institutional plazas, and commerce and leisure plazas. The entire complex will be landscaped, including environmental preservation measures. There will also be systems for drinking water collection, treatment and distribution, waste collection and treatment, electric energy, road signs and rainwater collection. “With this technology, we are establishing a new concept in the construction of villages, construction sites and camps for the entire civil and industrial segment in Brazil in a clean, sustainable and economic fashion, while also guaranteeing the safety of our Members and their families,” said the contract’s Commercial Director.
