CBAO, CEO asked to level up project standards for Baguio
by Gaby B. Keith and Aileen P. Refuerzo

Mayor Benjamin Magalong called on the City Buildings and Architecture Office and City Engineering Office to upgrade the city’s standards on the designs and materials for all city government-funded horizontal and vertical projects.

The mayor expressed disappointment over the outcome of some of the projects he inspected with Engr. Bonifacio dela Peña, which fell short of the standards. 

Magalong doubled down on his promise that no project using public funds will be approved unless these meet contract specifications to the letter. For some projects, it was found out that it was the inferior program of work that is to blame. 

“Let’s adopt a higher standard for these projects. Our people deserve better,” the mayor said.

Together with dela Peña, the mayor led a team composed of representatives from the City Engineering Office, City Buildings and Architecture Office, police personnel, and other concerned departments Wednesday to inspect the construction of a day care center at San Antonio Village, Aurora Hill together with barangay officials.

Upon inspection of the project that just completed its first phase of construction worth nearly P1 million, Magalong expressed his disappointment on its roughshod and below par appearance that he said does not meet the standards for a day care center. 

The mayor’s observation was seconded by dela Peña who is a civil engineer by profession.

Magalong laid part of the blame on government offices tasked to enforce the strict implementation of projects like the CEO and CBAO and challenged them to improve the programs of work and project specifications.

He gave the same stern warning to contractors that they will be blacklisted and legal proceedings may even be made against them if they do not level up their work and meet contract specifications and standards.

The mayor stressed that under his administration, there will be no “under-the-table” and other shenanigans and that he will continue to conduct surprise inspections of government projects to make sure that these are up to standards and of good quality.

Magalong has earlier expressed disappointment on the works done at the Baguio Convention Center.
