LINGAYEN – Three buildings will rise soon within the Capitol Complex under the leadership of Governor Amado I. Espino, III who just received a fresh mandate after winning in the recently-concluded elections.
Governor Espino, along with other provincial executives led by Provincial Administrator Nimrod S. Camba, spearheaded the groundbreaking ceremonies of the legislative building, Provincial Engineering Office (PEO) building and warehouse building on May 27.
The two-storey legislative building will house the legislative department of the provincial government.
Provincial Engr. Antonieta C. Delos Santos disclosed that the building has a total floor area of 2,305.94 square meters (1,201.97 sq. m. for the ground floor and 1,103.97 sq. m. for the second floor).
The provincial engineer noted that the provincial government will initially work on the phase 1 of the legislative building which has a project cost of about P25 million.
The legislative building will be constructed on the left side of the entrance of the Motorpool Compound.
Engr. Delos Santos stressed that concerned stall operators who will be affected by the construction of the legislative building will be transferred to other unoccupied stalls around the Capitol Complex.
“They will be transferred to other existing vacant stalls,” she said.
Two of the three buildings will be utilized by the engineering department – PEO building and warehouse building.
Engr. Delos Santos said the construction of the PEO building, which has a total floor area of 864.48 sq. m. (448.74 sq. m. for the ground floor and 415.74 sq. m. for the second floor), enables the employees to connect easier since all divisions will be staying at one building.
“The completion of the PEO Building will allow all employees to stay in one building including those in the administrative, planning department, carpentry, waterworks and motorpool divisions,” Engr. Delos Santos stated.
As such, the provincial government has earmarked P15 million for the phase 1 of the construction of the PEO building.
On the other hand, the PEO warehouse has total floor area of 1,008 sq. m. and has a total project cost of P11.2 million.
Engr. Delos Santos said that the warehouse building will shelter construction materials for use of various infrastructure projects of the provincial government.
