P283 million Army facility to rise in Fort Bonifacio

Louella Desiderio - The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — A state-of-the-art facility amounting to P283.4 million will be constructed for two units of the Philippine Army at Fort Bonifacio in Taguig, the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) announced yesterday.

The BCDA said the facility, which will house the Philippine Army’s technical staff of the Special Services Center (SSC) and Division Administrative Command Center (DACC), forms part of the relocation program for military structures being transferred from the current location in the Bonifacio South Pointe lot, which is also at Fort Bonifacio.

The five-story building will be equipped with a helipad, roof deck, lower ground parking and a bridge connected to the Army headquarters.

The BCDA said the building is set for completion by December this year.

At present, the Philippine Army’s SSC, DACC and Support Command occupy 11.5 hectares in the Bonifacio South Pointe property.

Last month, BCDA officer-in-charge president Aristotle Batuhan, Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) chief Lt. Gen. Andres Centino, Army chief Maj. Gen. Romeo Brawner Jr. and Defense Assistant Secretary Jesus Rey Avilla led the capsule laying and site inspection of the building.

As part of its mandate to generate funds for the AFP modernization program, the BCDA said it would develop the 33.13-hectare Bonifacio South Pointe through a joint venture agreement with SM Prime Holdings.
