This department is in charge of urban planning and its implementation, enabling the orderly development of new structures and spaces on campus, making sure they have the necessary infrastructure, and foreseeing the conservation needs for the main historic complexes. In addition, it spearheads the execution of the sustainability strategy, which includes guidelines regarding the management of spaces and buildings, mobility and integral waste management, with a vision to transforming the City of Knowledge into a point of reference in the matter of sustainable urban development in Panama. It is responsible for anticipating and creating the spaces required to fulfill the City of Knowledge project’s objectives. It takes part in the process of assigning spaces to satisfy the needs of the Foundation’s clients.

I am in charge of making improvements related to urban planning and buildings. I am sociable and cooperative. Once, during a field inspection with Mr. Irving, we were chased by a pack of coatimundis! I enjoy that at the FCdS we can coexist with the environment and enjoy the best of an urban setting, while also being in touch with nature.
