The execution of the conservation tasks has been organized around 3 areas defined by the city government:

Zone 2: Loranca District – Nuevo Versalles – Miraflores

Zone 3 Industrial: located within the other two zones. 

The main conservation activities are:
-Replacement of sidewalks with hydraulic tiles of different sizes and models, and replacement of curbs.
-Placement of speed bumps in pedestrian crossings.
-Creation of new pedestrian crossings.
-Creation of crossings for firefighters.
-Replacement of roadways with MBC.
-Repair of joints and paving with a hot bituminous mix.
-Repair of playground equipment.
-Renovation of enclosures with metal fence.
-Irrigation pipes.

-Repair of damaged street furniture.
-Installation of new vertical and horizontal signage.
-Demolition of substandard housing.
-Weather-proofing of surfaces in town squares through collaboration agreements between the municipal government and neighborhood associations.

The three zones mentioned above will require between 40 and 60 monthly actions of different types. These actions may take from 6 hours (form the time the incident is reported until it is closed) to as long as three weeks, in the case large-scale incidents. The city’s engineers and those of Sorigué will consult to determine the best solution for solving each incident in an ideal way.

Ingrid software has been implemented for incident and task management. The system makes it possible to register, prioritize, and follow up on incidents, as well as to issue work orders, status reports, and certifications.

Sorigué has a presence in the area, consisting of its indirect personnel office, materials warehouse, and welfare facilities for persons assigned to its work teams. The machinery used, as well as most of the material resources, have recently been acquired, thus reinforcing Sorigué’s new commitment to the municipality.
