WATCH: Winning design for Senate’s new building

AECOM’s entry was declared as winner in Senate’s Global Conceptual Design Competition which searched for “a design that will symbolize the Senate for what it stands for, a design that will become a landmark for the Filipino people, and a design that can take the Senate of the Philippines to the next 100 years.”

“Today, we have reached a significant breakthrough as we have already concluded the second phase of the Project Road Map for the Senate Relocation,” Senator Ping Lacson said during the May 28 session.

“After careful review and evaluation of the Technical Evaluation Committee, BCDA officials, the Senators of the 17th Congress, and the Senate Community, Mr. President and distinguished colleagues, it is my honor to confirm before this august chamber the winner of the Global Conceptual Design Competition for the New Home of the Philippine Senate is AECOM, with a mere 0.36-point difference from our second choice,” he said.

The Project Road Map for the Senate Relocation will now enter its third phase which is the Procurement of Design and Build Package.

The Senate is eyeing to transfer to a permanent home in Bonifacio Global City by 2020.
