ICONSIAM supports the building of “Kadeejeen-Klongsarn Center”

The Kadeejeen-Klongsarn Community Center will serve as public utility areas and as the gateway to these communities as well as a starting point for tourists and general people who are searching for information and exchange idea and knowledge about these areas. In addition, the center will also serve as a showcase for products from these communities.

Through many years, ICONSIAM has a policy of responsibility towards society, the environment, and culture by contributing to the sustainable development of local communities and the long-lasting co-existence with the Chao Phraya River. Hence, ICONSIAM continues to fulfill its missions related to social development throughout the three projects, namely the conservation of natural resources and the environment of the Chao Phraya River in the vicinity, the sustainable development of the communities and their unique local wisdom, and the preservation of the precious culture and traditions of the people living along the Chao Phraya River generation after generation.  
 
ICONSIAM has cooperated with the Urban Design & Development Center (UddC), Kadeejeen-Klongsarn Community, including homes, temples, schools, and government agencies in Kadeejeen-Klongsarn community, and the PPCP (public-private-community partnership), which comprises of governmental agencies and private organisations, in particular religious leaders in communities including Buddhist Chief Abbot of Wat Prayurawongsawat Phra Brahmapundit, Head to Goowatin Islam Mosque Imam Nawin Sasanakul, and Assistant Abbot to Santa Cruz Church Father Anthony Ekkachai Soratchakit, to co-work and draw development plan for establishing “Kadeejeen-Klongsarn Center”.
 
Mr. Supoj Chaiwatsirikul, Managing Director of ICONSIAM Co., Ltd, said another key aspect of ICONSIAM’s CSR activities lies in the contribution to the development of the communities sustainable. ICONSIAM has foreseen that the project will create benefit for the communities and society, so that the company has taken part to the Kadeejeen-Klongsarn Center project since 2015. During the past two years, ICONSIAM has seen the community strength and unity, and so proud of being part of the community center’s initiative in Kadeejeen-Klongsarn areas. Moreover, ICONSIAM highly expects that the center will be a pilot project and be as a model for other communities’ development. The center will not only be learning and knowledge exchange information center, but also preserve tradition and culture, as well as promote eco-tourism, and increase incomes for people in the communities to have better living standard.
 
Assistant Professor Niramon Kulsrisombat, director of the Urban Design & Development Center (UddC), said that the initiative for establishing of the Kadeejeen-Klongsarn Center came from the realization that the areas is one of the oldest communities in Bangkok-Thonburi, which have deep and strong background. During the past 10 years, people in the communities and outside the area have created many activities to rehabilitate this neighbourhood to become lively again. Yet, temporary activities have its limitation and most are not permanent, it could not reach the development target in tangible outcome, despite people in the communities and other organisations have gradually increased their cooperation. As a result, people in Kadeejeen and Klongsarn communities have initiated an idea to establish “Kadeejeen-Klongsarn Center” (KK Center) as social areas and gateway for visitors to reach the area.
 
Kadeejeen-Klongsarn Center which will be completed in establishment in 2018 is located on an area of over 250 square meters of the Memorial Bridge adjacent to the riverfront court of the City Law Enforcement Department, which is where Kadeejeen and Klongsarn meet. It is one of the strategic areas to serve the communities as having every kind of transportation including road and water ways, and railway in the near future. The Kadeejeen-Klongsarn Community Center will serve as public utility areas and as the gateway to these communities as well as a starting point for tourists and general people who are searching for information and exchange idea and knowledge about these areas. In addition, the center will also serve as a showcase for products from these communities.
