For more than two decades, the history of Constructora Meco has been linked to that of the Panama Canal. The first contact was made with the participation of Meco in the Empire, Hodges (stage I and II) and Cartagena projects for the straightening of Corte Culebra; Gold Hill and Escobar. Moreover, the participation in the reconstruction of the Velázquez Dam project.
Later, during the expansion projects, Meco carried out the third of the five largest earthwork projects, called the North Pacific Expansion Canal Project, or PAC3. Furthermore, Meco was involved in the Pacific Access Channel Project or PAC4, where we excavated 2.5 kilometers of access channel to the Pacific and the construction of the fourth clay and rock dam, a 2.3 kilometer-long structure.
Another major challenge was the construction of the three Borinquen Dams, where 17 million cubic meters were excavated in 3.1 kilometers in length. The construction of the dams was divided into three stages: excavation, preparation of the foundation and construction of the dams. The budget for this contract was US$ 129.5 million.
