DMCI off to good start with infra projects

March 23, 2017

D.M. Consunji, Inc. recently signed major infrastructure projects worth P9 billion since the start of the year. The projects include tollway, power and water projects from public and private proponents, the firm said in a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange Thursday. “We started the year strong with these newly-awarded contracts. Hopefully, this will be the start of the aggressive rollout of mega-infrastructure projects across the country. We really need the additional roads and facilities,” said DMCI President Jorge Consunji. Awarded in January was the P1.3 billion Bued Viaduct at Section 3B-3 and roadway construction of Section 3B-4 Bued to Rosario, La Union of the Tarlac–Pangasinan–La Union Expressway of Private Infra Development Corporation (PIDC). This month, MPCALA Holdings, Inc. awarded DMCI a contract worth P7.2 billion for the Laguna portion of the Cavite-Laguna Expressway Project. The National Power Corp. also awarded three projects to DMCI, namely the remedial work of San Roque MPP Spillway Plunge Pool Area in Pangasinan; supply, construction/installation, testing and commissioning of Mansalay Switching Station and expansion of Bansud and San Jose Substation Projects in Oriental Mindoro; and rehabilitation of the Calapan-Bansud 69KV transmission line project, also in Oriental Mindoro. DMCI won the bid to construct three projects for Maynilad Water Services. These include a pipe replacement project in Parañaque City, the construction of a 30ML Reservoir and Pump Station in Imus, Cavite and the Putatan 20MLD Reverse Osmosis facility in Muntinlupa City. DMS
