NAVAL, Biliran (BDEO) – A safe and community-friendly new Provincial Police Office (PPO) building and facility will soon rise at Larrazabal village in Naval town.
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH)- Biliran District Engineering Office (BDEO) is now in the mid part of the construction of the PPO building that will house police men and women in order for them to have a spacious and comfortable workplace.
David P. Adongay Jr., District Engineer revealed that the contractor is catching up with the slight delay of their project implementation due to circumstances caused by Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
“Contractor had already resumed its work construction and now fast-tracking this project to meet their target date of completion on November 06, 2020,” Adongay reported.
The construction of the new three- storey building costing P24.15M has a total floor area of 720 sq.m.
Police Colonel (PCOL) Julius M. Coyme, Provincial Director, Biliran PPO already said during the groundbreaking ceremony of this building on February 18, 2020 that the construction of a new building was proposed because the assessment conducted of the existing/old PPO building revealed that the building is unstable for occupancy after the earthquake on April 23, 2018.
D.E. Adongay informs that the construction of the new Biliran PPO is like an upgraded version of a standard police office building.
“Aside from its Physically Challenged Person-friendly facility, this building is designed to be earthquake resilient,” said Adongay.
As of July 28, 2020, the project posts an accomplishment of 37.67%. This project is in convergence with DPWH and the Philippine National Police (PNP) implemented under FY 2020 Regular Infrastructure Program. – BiliranIsland.com
