Hilario Yadao, business unit head of MGS Construction, said Nottingham is set to be completed in August, way ahead of its target completion in December.
“With our new methodology in building condominiums, the construction of the 10-storey Nottingham has been faster,” Yadao said, as he graced the building’s topping off on Saturday.
MGS Construction Inc., a Triple-A land development construction company in the country, is the builder of Camella Northpoint, a landmark British colonial themed condo development in Davao City.
“We are doing well here. We met what we have committed, in fact, earlier than what we have promised,” Yadao told Camella Davao’s partners, brokers and agents in his speech during the topping off ceremony, symbolizing the near completion of the condo building. Nottingham‘s construction started in April, last year.
“In just nine months, we have completed the overall structure of the third building,” said Yadao, a former executive of MDC Construction Inc., builder of Ayala projects and one of the country’s top construction company.
“By second quarter of this year, we will start building the Liverpool. It’s a 15-storey condo building. Again, we will do something new in our methodology to hasten its completion,” Yadao said, adding they are targeting to complete Liverpool by end of 2014.
Yadao said they have continued to improve its manpower skills and upgrading its equipment to build top quality construction projects and lead in the construction industry in the country.
Marlon Escalicas, Camella Davao general manager, said they are expecting unit owners to move at Nottingham by August after the turnover, adding that the third building is already sold out.
“This is a very good way to start the year, as Nottingham‘s construction has been way ahead of schedule. Our contractor has once again shown their reliability and expertise in building condominiums,” he said.
“With Nottingham already fully sold out, our buyers want to see Liverpool soon,” Escalicas said.
He said Nottingham homeowners are also eager to move in to their new condo home.
MGS head Ferdinand Salcedo, for his part, said that with proper planning and preparation, plus the provision of two sets of formworks system, they were able to finish Nottingham in record time.
He said the company’s goal of achieving total quality in construction projects is achieved through their modern and pioneering building techniques, bolstered by their highly trained people, high-powered modern light and heavy equipment, and readily available resources.
MGS Construction has been in the construction business nationwide for almost 16 years now, building landmark projects for Crown Asia, Brittany Corporation, Camella, and Palmera Homes.
It has developed over 400 hectares of subdivision developments, catered by its entire fleet of over 80 light and heavy equipment, allowing it to simultaneously engage in several projects.
It has completed almost 260 projects, 158 of which was land development, 39 commercial and convenience stores, 56 mass housing projects and seven mid-rise buildings.
