Unsatisfactory School Building Project in Dagohoy, Bohol
« on: October 29, 2008, 03:55:09 PM »
Bohol Governor Erico Aumentado Friday inaugurated another two-classroom school building in Dagohoy town – but blacklisted its contractor from participating in biddings for similar projects in the future.

  Aumentado announced the blacklisting of R.C. Tagala Construction that did not even send a representative to the inauguration Friday of a two-classroom school building for the Dagohoy High School.

  The governor led the inauguration rites amid gripes from local officials that the building was haphazardly constructed.

  Former Vice Mayor Anania David, now Federated Parents-Teachers-Community Association president, complained that, among others, the fascia boards were crooked and too thin, the doorknobs installed were defected and that the painting was not yet complete.

  The governor noted her complaint, and added his own observation that although already very reasonably priced at P300,000 per classroom or P600,000 per building, the R.C. Tagala Construction miserably failed to measure up to the accomplishments of other contractors of similar buildings who, on top of following the specifications to the letter, even donated two blackboards per classroom.

  Aumentado takes pride that using the convergence strategy, he was able to build 34 buildings or 68 classrooms this school year through the counterparting of funds with President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and the Department of Education (DepEd).

  . With the dismal performance of R.C. Tagala Construction, however, the governor said he will push for the implementation of the projects under the next batch by the Engineer Support Battalion (ESBn) under Lt. Col. Ramon Ruiz.

  The handiwork of the battalion is “flawless,” he observed

  Considering inflation and the rising cost of construction materials, the governor caused the adjustment of the building cost from P600,000 to P780,000 or P390,000 per classroom.

  “Even then, the joint project’s cost remains below the pricing of the Department of Public Works and Highways at around P450,000 to P500,000 per classroom or the Principal-Led project of DepEd at P510,000 per classroom – with no toilet and smaller in floor area and therefore more expensive,” Aumentado said.

  Just the same, Mayor Germinio Relampagos and Principal Virginia Macul accepted the building, saying that it will help meet the backlog of classrooms especially with the school’s steadily increasing enrolment and the burning to the ground of six classrooms a few months back.

  Provincial Engr. Edwin Vallejos assured the crowd that his office will correct the deficiencies, and that he is giving the building a five-year warranty period within which he can address complaints put forward – with funds from the amount retained for the purpose.

  For her part, Vice Mayor Shirley Amodia was all praises for the project, and expressed hope that the governor will allocate another building for DHS during Batch 2 of the Joint School Building Project.
