With Philconstruct Mindanao nearly a decade now, the biggest and most sought building and construction in the region will optimistically contribute in the socio-economic development in Mindanao.
This was underscored in a message by Mayor Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio but was read by City Engineer’s Office head Atty. Joseph Dominic Felizarta during the official opening of the three-day event last Friday, September 8 at the SM Lanang Activity Center.
“It is imperative that we take advantage of this as the government continues its Build, Build, Build Program,” Felizarta said.
He also asked the players and stakeholders in the construction and building industry present during the opening, to help the government in making Mindanao safe, sturdy and sustainable in the future.
Philconstruct Chairman Engr. Ramon Alladosaid that with the latest technology exhibited in the event, the government will be aided further in their continuous projects in the Build, Build, Build project with equipment that could speed up projects in the future.
“With this new technology, we can do more projects at a very short time, with consistency and good quality,” Allado said.
