SJCBI, in partnership with The Cagayan State University – Carig Campus, held a seminar on Basic Construction Methodology, Safety and Practices at Taytay Multi-purpose Hall on March 12, 2021.
The program “Project Salinong-Integrated Services for Sustainable Development” featured talks by Engr. John Michael Casibang, Engr. Nikki Sumer, Engr. Rolly Mark Sotelo and Engr. Jowell John Talosig, CSU-Carig Campus College of Engineering Faculty Members.
Under the topic Basic Construction Methodology, Engr. Casibang highlighted the importance of observing good practices in construction to ensure structural integrity.
Meanwhile, Engr. Sumer drove at the significance of avoiding unnecessary risks and to always follow the ‘safety first’ rule in his discussion on Basic Construction Safety & Health.
Engr. Sotelo, who discussed Post-construction Practices, said that they would be hands-on building at least one duplex.
Moreover, the CSU-Carig Engineering Department pledged to provide IBC (Intermediate Bulk Containers) to solve water storage problems in the construction area.
The event opened with the welcome remarks of Dr. Marissa Palomares, SJCBI Vice-president for Administration, who said that this is the first of the training series as part of the Memorandum of Agreement signed by SJCBI and CSU-Carig Campus last March 5.
Palomares also noted that this training is not only for the on-going construction of Project Salinong, but, more importantly, as an alternative source of income for the beneficiaries as they begin a new chapter of their life in their new home.
Fr. Christian Dave Remudaro, Community Engagement and Campus Ministry (CECM) Director, thanked CSU-Carig Campus Executive Officer Engr. Arthur Ibañez, and the Engineering Department’s faculty members for sharing their time in conducting this seminar.
He closed the program by bestowing God’s blessings to the 46 participants including 32 Zone 7 beneficiaries, 5 SJCBI male teachers, and 11 Army personnel.
