Site clearing and putting up of board ups, bollards and appropriate signage as needed will be executed before starting. Temporary facilities will be constructed on the project site in the area to be designated by the owner. These facilities shall consist of a field office to ensure effective management of this project, a warehouse where we can store our tools and materials needed in the project, and an area where we can do some of our fabrication activities for timely completion of the project. Thereafter, the mobilizations and procurements of local and imported materials will be started. Simultaneously, civil works will be done by doing the lay-outing, coring, chipping, restoration, and all related civil works. Mechanical works will be started by doing the fabrications supports. Upon the arrival of the equipment and machines, installations will be done accordingly as per program schedule.
