Our young shadows started their day following ongoing engineering and planning work at the office and then headed to our current project sites: construction of Zolitūdes Gymnasium new building, reconstruction of English Gymnasium building and construction of social housing complex in Mežrozīšu Street. At each site Moduls Engineering construction supervisors told youngsters about current stage of each project, work being performed and used technologies and materials.
