The First Concrete Pouring Ceremony for the New Senate Building at the Navy Village, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City is happening today, February 6.
“I am inviting the members of this body to join the First Concrete Pouring Ceremony tomorrow, February 6, 2020, at 9:00 in the morning,” Senator Ping Lacson said on February 5 in a manifestation.
Senator Lacson explained that the First Concrete Pouring is a tradition of symbolic milestone in all engineering programs – private or public – to mark the beginning of monolithic works.
“But the concrete that we are pouring tomorrow morning is not just for ceremonial display as in many similar engineering works. Our activity will start the actual massive pouring of concrete that will serve as the cornerstone and the very foundation of the new Senate Building, which will represent the continuing legacy of this great independent institution,” he noted.
He also reiterated the commitment of Senate Committee on Accounts, that the Third Regular Session of the 18th Congress will be opened in the new building.
“[O]ur new building, which will rise in the 18,320 square meters of land at the Navy Village, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City, will consist of four (4) towers with eleven (11) floors and three (3) basement levels,” Lacson said.
