CIN sponsors “Urban Regeneration Conference”

Viana do Castelo, 30 and 31 May 2016

CIN, the Portuguese company which is the Iberian leader in the paint and varnish market and is present in various international markets, is the official and exclusive sponsor in the paints area for the “Urban Rehabilitation Working Days”, an initiative promoted by the Viana de Castelo city council, taking place in the Council on 30 and 31 May.

The “Urban Rehabilitation Working Days” are a project carried out under the responsibility of the Viana do Castelo City Council which have the objective of creating an opportunity to make municipalities aware of the importance of urban rehabilitation and, at the same time, disseminate and debate this theme. During these days it is intended to cover this topic in a wide-ranging manner.
As such, on 30 May national and municipal strategic scales will be analysed.
On 31 May technical issues relating to carácter intervention and building structures will be considered and also the challenges placed on activity projectual.

The participants will also be able to visit rehabilitation works carried out in the Municipality of Viana do Castelo.
The Viana do Castelo City Council seeks to involve the community with this initiative, through a sample of constructive techniques to be carried out in a public area and an exhibition of rehabilitation projects.
