Necessary Preparations Gear Towards Construction

In every project, there are necessary preparations to be done in order to have a smooth-flowing and organized flow of work. These are matters that will affect greatly the duration of the construction period.

Recently, architectural drawing details have been finalized in order to also point out the final list of materials for the said project.

On site, clearing operations were done as one of the first steps towards the beginning of the construction period. The construction of the North Campus Gate will start by March. This gate will serve as the main entrance not only for the Science Wing but for Foundation Preparatory Academy (FPA), as a whole.

As with the concern on electric wirings and posts that are currently installed in front of FPA, communication letters were sent from the University to the local energy provider, Negros Oriental Electric Cooperative (NORECO) II. The institution in its aim to improve its buildings and facilities has requested NORECO II to relocate electrical posts fronting the facade of the building.

Essential Preparations for the Implementation

One of the most essential steps to accomplish towards constructing an edifice is to produce the blueprints and before the start of any activity, it is but required to secure permits from a specific government agency.

Those steps mentioned were simple yet very important before the start of any project implementation.

On the other hand, Estudio Damgo aims to promote sustainable materials for construction such as the Bamboo, which is grown in almost every place in the country.

Sustainability in this context would mean a material that could easily be replaced provided that the material will always be available within the immediate community.

In line with this, 300 pieces of bamboo were purchased and air-dried off site, in order to prepare for the construction of the comfort lounge that will again feature the Bamboo, an indigenous material.

Treatment barrels have been produced for the bamboo poles to be used for the structure. This is also an important preparation in order to preserve the material from infiltration of insects. When treated well, the bamboo’s usage can be lengthened to several years.

Added to the series of preparations, bamboo column supports and bamboo pegs were also fabricated.

Clinic to Open a New Milestone for the Institution

As of this week, the building construction of the Edgar Pasimio Memorial Clinic has gone more than halfway to completion.

Electrical and data wirings are currently worked on and once the installation is finished alongside with the plumbing system (plumbing system installation is also on-going), slab pouring at the ground floor will immediately follow. Also, rebars are being installed for the ground floor slab. 

To note, slab pouring on the second floor of the building and the installation of rafters and purlins was recently completed.

Currently, roof shingles are being mounted at the south side and the full-welding works on all wide-flange (i-beams) columns and beams joints connections.

Meanwhile, there is an ongoing excavation for the koi pond at the north side of the stairs.

The soon to be completion of the Edgar Pasimio Memorial Clinic will signal the beginning of a new milestone for Foundation University, as with providing quality healthcare services in collaboration with its College of Nursing.     

Designed after the desires of a philanthropic spirit of a noble man, the Edgar Pasimio Memorial Clinic aims to serve the immediate community of Dumaguete especially the residents nearby who desire to avail of healthcare programs and services.
