The construction of this residential project included over 700 employees and was a big challenge for everyone. Nuno Valente, the construction manager, acknowledged that “recognising the various circumstances that we experienced throughout the project,
the safety solutions in the production were a key tool in completing the work within the set deadlines and taking into account the quality and safety standards that characterise Mota‐Engil Mexico”.
This luxury housing complex consists of 122 apartments, with sizes ranging
MEXICO
from 250 m2 to 500 m2, distributed between two towers of 30  oors each and having private gardens and terraces.

MAMF MEXICO SUPPORTS
EXCELLENT STUDENTS
The Excellence Scholarships consist of an economic incentive that will enable the employees’ children to have better academic, professional and personal development.
Aware of its important role as an agent
of social change, the Manuel António da Mota Foundation, in Mexico, created the Scholarship Programme, whose goal is
to support the development of the high academic level of its employees’ children.
According to the OECD, Mexico is at
the top in terms of school dropouts between the ages of 15 and 18, and
is third among the nations with the highest youth population neither studying nor working. Thus, Mexico
is the  rst country among OECD’s 34 Member States losing, on average, 40% of its youth in the transition from high school to higher education. Additionally, the number of students enrolled in
the following school levels is sharply reduced to the point of only 12% of the youth between 20 and 29 years of age being devoted to studying.
The Manuel António da Mota Foundation in Mexico thus seeks to incentivise
the youth’s aspirations, job prospects and participation in public and private representation, through the promotion of education of excellence.
The  rst generation of Excellence scholarship holders of Mota‐Engil Mexico consists of 12 extraordinary students, eight of whom are women, attending high school and college and living in Nayarit, Mérida, Tuxpan, Veracruz, San Luis Potosí and Morelia. During a school year – and as long as he/she maintains an average of 9.0 or higher out of 10 – each student will receive an economic incentive that will enable him/her to have better academic, professional and personal development.
