TWG of Baguio Convention Center rehab needs a structural engineer
ENGR. TEODORICO TAN, Baguio City

The problems encountered during the renovation of Baguio Convention Center, a P169-million project, may have been avoided if they included a structural/civil engineer as a member of the technical working group.

Architects and structural engineers have their respective disciplines of expertise in the field of civil works design and construction.

The present nine members of the technical working group, tasked to oversee the renovation of Baguio Convention Center and who are all architects, cannot properly respond to all the technical aspects needed in all the structural changes of the convention center renovation.

The scope of works on these renovation projects, as stated, includes structural revisions which need professional advice and recommendation coming from a structural engineer. Maybe it’s not too late for the city to include a structural/civil engineer as member of the technical working group to serve as an adviser in the structural integrity on all design changes and revisions during the renovation of the Baguio Convention Center.
