Charitable project Bridges to Prosperity won a prestigious award

The HOCHTIEF Group won a prestigious Immobilienmanager Award 2016 for its project Bridges to Prosperity. Last year, two employees of our company also participated in this project – Matěj Bůžek and Anna Hlaváčová.

The price in the Corporate Social Responsibility 2016 category was awarded by the German magazine “Immobilienmanager” which especially appreciated long-lasting and successful involvement of the HOCHTIEF Group in this charitable project.

The main objective of the Bridges to Prosperity (B2P) project is to design and construct footbridges and bridges over creeks and rivers in poor African countries. HOCHTIEF focuses on the Republic of Rwanda. Each year, a team consisting of ten members sets out with the mission to build a safe crossing of river in those places where local people get across watercourses on slippery rocks and so they risk their lives on a daily basis.
