10 May Oro Central Multi-Purpose Building Project – Quality Education Continues Under Moreno’s Leadership
On 2014, a project has been created to give a quality education to the people of Cagayan de Oro city, until now, developments are being watched as Moreno plans to materialize it.
Oscar Moreno has been re-elected as the Mayor of Cagayan de Oro city, and his plans of creating that 4-structure building that is intended to be used as a School and an evacuation center as well can become a reality.
The building that will be called “Oro Central”, is expected to contain 200 classrooms, laboratories, office spaces, modern multimedia library, parks, and an eco-friendly rooftop garden.
“Normally, if you make the school the evacuation center you have to stop school. And the other thing is when the evacuees leave, invariably the school is damaged,” said, Judge Guillermo Luz, private sector co-chairman of the National Competitiveness Council (NCC).
Its location is at the City Central School. The building is designed to have a comprehensive network of passages and exits to prevent stampedes.
The area is also near the track and field and football field where the people can relocate whenever there is an earthquake.
It is also away from flooding, and within two kilometers of hospitals and pharmacies, giving the people a lot of choices near the building to meet their needs.
But aside from its impressive design for safety, the architectural superiority of the building has not been compromised as well.
It parades an arsenal of awesome engineering elegance: natural ventilation, natural lighting, solar panels and a 900,000-liter tank for storing rainwater.
Outside the building, pathways and sidewalks will be created wide enough for the people not to crowd themselves within the area. There are also bicycle lanes to maintain minimal congestion between pedestrians and cyclists.
“We are looking at a private-public partnership (PPP) because the amount needed is quite big – P950 to 980 million initial cost,” said Dionel Albina, a professor at the Mindanao University of Science and Technology.
Under Moreno’s leadership, who has one of his focus is on quality education; this modern multi-purpose structure can become a reality before his term ends.
