MOZAMBIQUE: Olympic Village meets execution time

15 June 2011 No Comment

Although the execution time-limit is short (13 months) and because the X All-Africa Games will occur in September this year, the Olympic Village will meet the schedule of all work, with all the sports and housing conditions that an event of this nature requires. The facilities are located in the neighbourhood of Zimpeto, in the surroundings of Maputo, and are being constructed by a consortium with Soares da Costa, headed by Mota-Engil Engenharia, through its branch, worth 114 million euros. The Olympic Village will occupy 15 hectares, where 27 buildings are being built for 848 flats that will house some four thousand support members and six thousand athletes expected for this event, considered as the “African Olympics”. Besides the flats for accommodation, other facilities will be built, such as an Olympic swimming pool and another one for training, and a practice field for athletics. The specification details also include the construction of infrastructures such as roads, water, sewage and electricity networks.
