DTI - CIAP Awards 2017
DTI recognizes MIESCOR as a Pillar of the Construction Industry.
The company received the prestigious Pillar of the Construction Industry award during the 2nd Philippine Construction Congress held last November 28, 2017 at the Philippine International Convention Center at the Cultural Center of the Philippines in Pasay City. The award gives recognition to MIESCOR’s significant contributions to the Philippine Construction Industry and nation building over the years as Registered POCB Contractor.
MIESCOR is a stalwart in the electro-mechanical construction field, with it carrying 44 years of notable experience in various projects in the local and international fields. Currently, the company is playing an active role in development projects in Visayas and Mindanao. This year alone, it has successfully completed four big projects in these areas - CEPALCO 138 kV Kirahon Substation Expansion, CEPALCO 138 kV Kirahon Transmission Line, electrical and instrumentation and control works for Balingasag 3x55 MW Thermal Power Plant, and the GNPower 69 kV Transmission Line. In the execution stage are the Cebu-Negros-Panay Substation and the Mindanao Backbone Project. With these accomplishments, MIESCOR has proven that it is more than capable of taking on bigger projects and expanding its field of expertise.
The construction industry in the Philippines is expected to grow at a rapid pace these coming years, especially with the support from the current administration through the ‘Build, Build, Build’ program. The government’s commitment to the nation’s infrastructure development was made even more evident with President Rodrigo Duterte’s presence in the event. Leaders and major stakeholders in the construction industry were also in attendance for the presentation and discussion of upcoming major infrastructure projects.
In this same event, Luis F. Lopez, Vice President and Head of Engineering, was also recognized for his dedication and service to the industry and was presented the award of the Most Improved Worker of the Construction Industry. He had joined the company as an Engineer Trainee in June 1981 and held various positions within the company before his appointment as Vice President and Head of Project Execution last August 2003.
