Tenaris is implementing its largest investment since 2013, more than $690,000 USD, at a technical high school in the district of Campana, Buenos Aires, Argentina, the institution with the highest enrollment in the local community with 1,000 students. The project involves the expansion and enhancement of the classrooms, which will improve the internal layout and provide greater comfort to students and teachers.
“This project is part of a Tenaris’s comprehensive plan to improve the learning conditions of thousands of students in our community. We are very proud to announce that this initiative represents the largest investment made by our company in educational infrastructure since the creation of the Roberto Rocca Technical School (ETRR) in 2013, ” said Javier Martínez Álvarez, president of Tenaris for the Southern Cone.
The project will add 600 square meters of covered space, plus the reconditioning of existing classrooms, multipurpose and circulation areas. The expansion of the double-storied classroom wing will allow the addition of new units - machine rooms, storage rooms, bathrooms for students and teachers, administrative offices, stairs and an emergency exit. It will also connect the wing with the blacksmithing, carpentry and welding workshops rooms. The project is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
Students from the school will also be able to use one of the digital classrooms held in the local Educative Center of Campana, equipped with 40 computers and the latest tecnologies, fully provided by Tenaris.
