RESTORATION WORKS AT THE RAFINA SPECIAL SCHOOL COMPLEX
In September 2019, the HELPE Group, in the context of its provision of humanitarian support to those inflicted by the fire at Neos Voutzas, Mati and Rafina, restored and renovated fully the buildings of the Rafina Special School Complex, which had been partially destroyed by the fire. All the facilities and the surrounding area, where more than 80 children with special skills are hosted, were fully refurbished and upgraded too. The fire had caused major damage to the elementary school buildings and the surrounding area, while the rest of the building complex had major deficiencies in terms of facilities, functionality, security and accessibility for the children hosted there.
The new premises were restored fully by the Group's subsidiary, ASPROFOS Engineering, in accordance with the high quality and safety standards set by the European Union and applied by ELOT. The restoration Project was completed in record time, as schools were in operation until mid-June 2019 and all works on 5 of the 6 buildings and the surrounding area took place solely during the 3 summer months until the start of the new school year.
