The Minister of Housing and Buildings, Carlos Bonilla, toured the southern region of the country to supervise the progress of the extensions of the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo (UASD), under construction in Baní and Azua. Both works are already in their last stage, to be inaugurated by the President of the Republic, Luis Abinader.
These extensions will provide 82 new classrooms to the higher education system and will be delivered by Mived soon.
The first stop of Minister Bonilla was the extension of the house of studies in the province of Azua, whose works are currently at 80% of completion by the Ministry of Housing and Buildings.
During the tour, Bonilla said: “We will be ready in a few months to teach classes here. More or less a year ago we started this infrastructure and you can see all that has been achieved in that year; that can only be done by the efficiency of the government of President Luis Abinader”.
This work, developed on 9,100 square meters of construction and 19,500 square meters of land, will have teaching buildings with capacity for more than 1,900 higher education students.
The modern school will have three administrative buildings with student services and will provide 41 new classrooms for higher education, as well as six laboratories, a library and a patriotic plaza.
It will also have a multi-purpose hall, cafeteria, mixed court, perimeter fence, treatment plant, service areas, as well as 110 parking spaces for vehicles, including light vehicles, motorcycles and handicapped parking spaces.
The second stop of the official’s tour was in Baní, Peravia province, where he directly observed the final touches to the extension of the UASD in that area, where only 8% of the work remains to be completed.
Like the Azua campus, this extension in Baní, which is being built on 19,500 square meters, will have three administrative buildings, six laboratories, a patriotic plaza and a library, also contributing 41 new classrooms to the country’s higher education system.
The school, which has teaching buildings with a capacity for 1,908 students, will also have a multi-purpose hall, cafeteria, a mixed court and bleachers, a perimeter fence, a treatment plant and a service area.
This work, which began in May 2022 and is 92% complete, will also have 218 parking spaces for vehicles, with parking for light vehicles, motorcycles, the disabled and buses.
During the tour, Minister Bonilla was accompanied by the governor of Peravia, Ángela Yadira Báez; the mayor of Baní, Santos Ramírez, and deputies Julito Fulcar and Luis Báez, together with authorities from Azua.
