This is the initial phase of a 100,000 unit low-income housing initiative from the government of President Juan Manuel Santos, who seeks to generate employment and reduce poverty levels. During this phase around 570 people have been benefitted by the program.

To reduce construction costs and ensure that the homes were completed on time and with the highest quality, CLH used an industrialized building system using concrete walls and plaques with metal frameworks. By using this modern system the company was able to guarantee efficiency in worksite controls, precise dimensions of all homes, and perfect finishes. During the event Minister Vargas Lleras highlighted CLH’s speed, efficiency, and quality in facing the challenge to participate in the 100,000 homes project.
