Department of Public Works and Highways Cagayan de Oro City 2nd District has a new 3-storey office building that can accommodate its various office sections and units, Offices include the district engineer, administrative, finance, planning & design and construction sections and procurement, public information and technology and budgeting and cashering units.
However, maintenance and quality assurance sections and the commission on audit have their own respective office buildings.
The new building has complete air-conditioning units, CCTV and elevator including cistern and water tanks. DPWH 2nd District Engineer Anastacio Marundan said that P47 million was spent to the new building located at Barangay Macabalan, Cagayan de Oro City.
“With the completion of the new building, the district now has a new conducive facility to uphold its commitment to deliver excellent service to its clients,” said Engr. Marundan.
Marundan said the blessing and inauguration of the building will be scheduled this August soon.
“The contractor (Jamari Construction) meets its target of completion,” said Marundan, adding that the construction was started on May 3, 2017 and it was completed on February 27, 2018.
“The contract does not include the provision of transformers to energize the electrical and mechanical components of the project, as the application for such are still on going,” said Marundan.
Jamari Construction is an establishment known for constructing infrastructure s such as, buildings, roads, dams, canals, drainage and water system.
Jamari had been in the construction business for several years already and gained more recognition from their clients through their impressive performances, according to Engineer Noel Alfonso, the assigned government project engineer.
Jamari even sets high standards in hiring employees, he said.
For the contractor’s part they said they were honored to be part of the district’s commitment in serving the government with the emphasis on “Build, Build, Build” and “Job, Job, Job” program of the administration.
Like Jamari Construction, Marundan said the district office also looks forward to more job generations for the locals as it continues its project implementations in the field of construction and maintenance of public infrastructures.
“We both desire to uphold our sworn mission to provide and manage quality infrastructure facilities and services responsive of the needs of the Filipino people in the pursuit of national development objectives,” Marundan said.
In addition, Jamari Construction usually hires employees who are willing to learn, accept mistakes and eager to help the progress of the company and willing to take task beyond their limits.
It even offered good compensation to those employees who have been loyal and helpful in the success of the company.
The standard building design was initiated to create uniform buildings thus properly identifying DPWH offices, according to Marundan.
