Somalia is entering a new phase, where stability is slowly replacing insecurity.
United Nations has decided to move back into the country and suddenly there is a growing demand for accommodation and office facilities.
UNHCR requested us to intervene on three sites and propose ways to improve the welfare of their staff without compromising their security.
We visited the site to familiarize with the current situation and proposed a number of measures to transform militarized installations into comfortable accommodation and offices.
