The Ministry of Housing, Habitat and Buildings (Mivhed) opened a national public tender, estimated at RD$404,546,557, for the construction of several works and equipping the Dr. Luis Eduardo Aybar sanitary city.
This was revealed in a publication posted on the website of the General Directorate of Public Contracting (DGCP), which detailed that the aforementioned amount would be spent on eight works, as well as the equipping of the Luis Eduardo Aybar.
Of all these projects, the most expensive will be the construction of the Polideportivo Los Jardines del Norte, valued at 91.4 million pesos, which will also have a maximum execution time of 18 months, according to the specifications of the work.
This is followed by the construction of the Psychosocial Centers I and II, with an estimated cost of RD$74,467,966 and RD$74,653,086, respectively, which will be located in Higüey, La Altagracia province, and Moca, Espaillat.
Almost reaching RD$42 million is the renovation of buildings, landmarks and monuments of the Plaza de la Cultura in El Seibo.
