The Municipal Society of Housing and Services of La Laguna (Muvisa) is working on an industrial architecture pilot project that it wants to launch in Tejina and that would initially consist of five homes, which, through a standardized digital writing system , could be available in less than a year.

This initiative was detailed in the IV Working Table on Social Housing Needs, in which Daniel López, professor at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and architect in the Technical Services of the IMHAB, promoter of public housing of the Barcelona City Council, explained the technical and administrative procedures of the new industrialized housing developments that are being developed in this town, a fundamental exchange of experiences to advance in this way.

The Work Table on Social Housing Needs is an initiative promoted by the La Laguna Social Welfare Area and in which different councils, the Corporation’s political groups, municipal technical staff, island and Canary Islands administrations, professionals from the sector, social organizations and neighborhood groups, all in order to find realistic and short-term solutions to the growing demand for housing in the municipality, both by people at risk of social exclusion, as well as families with incomes and who cannot assume the high market prices.

In these months of work, the Board has made an in-depth analysis of housing needs, the current situation and medium-term projections, available resources, prices and priorities, all with the joint work of its members. The main conclusions to date have included the reinforcement of emergency actions (executed through the increase in resources for temporary accommodation, the financial allocation for rental aid and reinforcing inter-administrative collaboration to extend the anti-eviction moratorium) , promote the empty housing rescue plan, bet on social rental systems and find innovative solutions to alleviate the deficit of public housing in the municipality that respond to the more than 2,000 families that demand one in any of its formulas.

The mayor of La Laguna, Luis Yeray Gutiérrez, assures that “at present we are in the municipality faced with the challenge of building simple, logical and functional houses that give precise answers to a pressing social demand but with a main factor to take into account. counts: time, since we must act quickly to address homelessness ”. The mayor emphasizes that this type of construction «must also be technically correct, self-sufficient from the energy point of view and economically viable.»

«In the Working Group on Social Housing Needs it has become clear that the municipality not only has historical housing shortages, but also publicly owned developable land for new construction of social housing, which now we must face», explained the councilor of Social Welfare, Rubens Ascanio.

The report presented by Muvisa indicates that the available surface will allow the construction of a maximum of 169 homes, a space that has already been made available to the Government of the Canary Islands for the new Canarian Housing Plan and that will be added to the acquisition by Visocan of unfinished buildings after the crisis of the housing bubble.

However, «the long periods of execution that require this type of promotions make them a measure that does not solve the current pressing needs.», Ascanio valued, who reported that, in addition to these construction projects, «resources are being reinforced housing emergency, which have increased by 250% in just twelve months, as well as social rental projects, those related to the rental of empty homes and the acquisition and rehabilitation of housing, in close collaboration with the municipal company Muvisa ”.

For this reason, it is going to bet on a reinforcement with an industrialized construction system using virtual development techniques, which allows to have homes finished in a period up to five times lower than the average and take advantage of the availability of land in less crowded areas. In fact, three of the six districts, which represent 32% of the surface of the municipality, accumulate 77% of the population and have an average population density of 3,785.8 inhabitants per km² (districts 1, 2 and 3, that is, those whose central neighborhood is the City, La Cuesta and Taco).

«It is not about modular or prefabricated houses, but about the manufacture of elements and components in series to obtain complete structures through subsequent assembly, with the rigor, precision and accuracy established according to the Technical Building Code and other current regulations”, explained the CEO of Muvisa, Ignacio Viciana.

The pilot project will be developed in one of the urban plots of Muvisa in Tejina, which will allow the execution of 5 houses, with an execution period of one year and a material execution budget with a much lower material execution cost. Muvisa personnel are already being trained, so that they are capable of managing the entire process and assuming the development of future projects, shortening execution times and thus lowering costs, shortening times and lowering costs.
