Contributed by Arch. Rex Tamase, BS Architecture

The United Architects of the Philippines Diliman Chapter celebrated its 29th Anniversary on July 10, 2008 with a General Membership Meeting held at HCG’s Lazuli Showroom at MC Home Depot in the Bonifacio Global City.

The guest speaker was B/Gen. Anthony Alcantara, who was the Philippine Army’s Brigade Commander in Nueva Ecija, where the Diliman Chapter helped build several schoolrooms. B/Gen. Alacantara explained that one of the first sites for the project was actually a military barracks which also served as an evacuation center. He stressed that the communities were grateful that help was being extended to them by the private sector. He also noted that the festive atmosphere during the turnover ceremonies were the communities’ way of thanking the Diliman Chapter and the Philippine Army for the assistance in building the schoolrooms. The Philippine Army transported the building materials to the project sites, and also provided additional manpower during the construction of the schoolrooms. B/Gen. Alcantara was joined by Maj. George Cabreros, Maj. Johnson Jemar Aseron, and Maj. Jun Bautista.
