SCV works almost exclusively with locally owned businesses. The architects (Branco Cavaleiro Architects), engineers (ScrenPlan), and contractors (António Alves Ribeiro & Filhos LDA.) that built the HPC are all from Viana do Castelo. Furthermore, the funding for the HPC construction was awarded because all of the building materials and services were sourced or contracted within Portugal. From F&B (Jenny & Carmie, local farmers), to handicrafts (Edartis – Artes e Edições), arts (Tomane Photography), complementary tours (Tobogã – Portugal Adventure Tours), as well as furniture and fixtures (Talentesquadria). Combined, SCV contributes over $55,000 USD per year to local vendors. During the Outdoor Sports Euromeet event in 2019, SCV held a training and networking workshop in their headquarters for all 13 tour operators of Viana, so they could learn about service provision and get to know and connect with one another in an effort to promote the destination.
