P410M earmarked for multi-level parking, legislative bldg
by PIO release

An eight-story parking building will soon rise near the Baguio City Hall.

From the recently-approved P2.179 billion budget for 2019, the city government allotted P410 million for the construction of a multi-level parking building and a legislative building to be built on a 1,500-square meter city property near the Baguio Fire Department.

City Buildings and Architecture Office Asst. Department Head Johnny Degay said the detailed engineering plans of the proposed structure are currently prepared by their office and will be the basis for the public bidding for one of the high impact projects of the local government this year pursuant to the city’s approved Annual Investment Plan.

Funds for the project came from the 2018 budget in the amount of P210M and the remaining P200M is from the 2019 budget.

Degay said the ground floor of the multilevel parking building will accommodate the offices and parking of the BFD and other offices of the local government and emergency vehicles, the second to eighth floors will be devoted for parking and other offices of the city council, including its desired state-of-the-art session hall, among others, while the ninth floor will serve as a deck for the installation of solar panels to provide additional source of power for the building.

Degay said the building will have an underground walkway linking the same with City Hall to allow convenience to people transacting businesses with the different offices of the local government.

Other features of the multi-level parking and legislative building will be the use of green architecture, a part of the local government’s priorities to ensure the maximum utilization of the spaces for their prescribed purposes.

Degay presented the conceptual design of the multi-level parking and legislative building to the city council during their 12-hour marathon budget deliberations last Dec. 27, 2018 where the same was conditionally approved with the requirement that the detailed engineering plans will be submitted to them for further study.

The city council also mandated the CBAO to consult with the different offices of the local government that will be using the structure for the specific design of their offices that should be incorporated in the structure.

Construction will start this year.

Degay said initial funds appropriated for the project might not be sufficient to complete the desired structure, that is why the CBAO will make do with what had been made available and the balance will be requested for inclusion in future supplemental or annual budgets of the local government.
