The new image of the facilities

The main changes to the facilities have been, on the one hand, the relocation of the wall that separates the office area from the technical area, to provide more surface area for the latter function. On the other hand, an office-type wall that separated the spaces of the large room from the equipment has been demolished.

The action of replacing the wall – has meant reducing the space above three offices in favor of increasing the technical area – will allow the 5 technicians and their reference to better serve users in employment projects , of social intervention, volunteering and elderly people deployed there. The new common area will enable greater interconnection between all the projects and the technicians, and more easily attend to user cases that require transversal attention. At the same time, there will be a space available for volunteers, where they can call and make arrangements.

The demolition of the old wall office it has opened up the space and created a large multipurpose room for events with high participation. At the same time, sliding doors have been installed in the middle which will make it possible, if necessary, to divide the space into two rooms for carrying out two simultaneous activities. In addition, in this space, a new computer area has been installed for users, intended for job hunting.
