UAP Davao celebrated its 35th Charter Anniversary with the successfully staging of “Defining Spaces 4: Condo Living, The Green Way” last March 25-27, 2011 at the Event Center of SM City Davao. The event, which was the fourth edition of the chapter’s annual construction show, was supported by more than 40 suppliers through their exhibits, product presentations and sponsorships.

Day 1 saw the formal opening of exhibits with guest of honor Roberto P. Alabado III, OIC of the Davao City Planning & Development Coordination Office, cutting the ceremonial ribbon. This was followed by a technical product presentation by CEMEX Philippines and a Welcome Dinner for architects and exhibitors.

The second day featured technical product presentations by Wall Crown Design Center and Canon Marketing. Highlights of the day, though, were the “10 Steps to Sustainability” lecture given by Arch. Miguel Guerero and the Fashion Show presented by Tri-Star Paint Center and Construction Supply.

Day 3 started with a Condo Design Contest for architecture students which was facilitated by Arch. Martha Gee Torres. In the afternoon, Engr. Ramon Revilla of the HLURB lectured on the “Standard of Condominium Design in Davao City,” and followed by a technical product presentation by Robert Bosch, Inc.

As culmination of the three-day charter anniversary celebration, everyone was treated to a musical presentation by UAP Davao’s musicians – Archs. Aiken Dela Cruz (guitar and vocals), Tee Jay Garcia (beat box), Ryan songcayauon (violin), Isidoro Malaque (violin), and Chapter President Jean Juanga (vocals).
