Construction of a municipal parking in Pinoso (Alicante): we work for the people.
Once the retaining wall was reinforced, the sidewalks were prepared and the asphalt was poured over the parking surface.
On the adjoining wall a historical mural was painted, the largest in the province of Alicante, with about 400 square meters. Made with spray in a monochromatic style, it represents the market that took place every sunday in the Colon square in the middle of the 20th century.

To finish the works, a semicircle made of bricks was placed in the middle of the front wall to host a clock with the coat of arms of Pinoso. The street lights were installed on the pillars of classical style.
The walls were partially tiled with marble extracted from the nearby quarry at Monte Coto.
On the perimeter of the parking lot were built an ornamental fountain and a small garden area.
It is important to highlight the speed of the works execution, the deadlines, and the final quality of the finishes in this work.
