Love Me Right

“We are not just building a house but a H.O.M.E”

Homechoice Planner’s slogan from an unknown author somehow echos this month’s emphasis on LOVE. Tho FEB 14 is the “official” day of what we call Hearts Day or Valentines Day yet the theme radiates all throughout the month thus calling February THE LOVE MONTH.

Flowers and chocolates are expected to rise in price this time of the year and all the once empty restaurants are now full. Get together, gifts, flowers, chocolates, human size stuff toy, hearts ….. spending …. sure are the top most used gestures but remember, let’s not trap this LOVE in a “couple” box.

We built hundreds of home in CDO and met different families with different stories. Stories that would make you reflect….

“Wow, he did that? and you’re still standing strong!”

“yup.. children needs disciplining. Spare the rod, spoil the child.”

“awwee, time did not kill the romantic spark in your relationship”

….. family matters. How you treat or handle the relationship inside your family, MATTERS!

A member in your family seems insecure? Appreciate him/her enough.
A member in your family seems to have trust issues? Maybe you’re not keeping the promises you’ve made.

Let’s love right this 2020

Here is a list of what the bible says love is. Why won’t we assess and evaluate ourselves. Maybe we are a little selfish for the past years or a bit proud. Maybe we are keeping records of wrongdoings and just waiting for the perfect chance to “let our heart out”. Maybe…

So how was the assessment doing?

Let’s together make our house a lovely home. A place where we can be ourselves and not be judged. HOME. A place where correction =  caring and not just nagging. HOME. A place where we first love right. HOME.

HOME.

The Preview – Bamboo Lane Cluster 14

Anyone of you here knows someone who owns a Bamboo Lane Unit in Cluster 14? Share them this blog!

What we have here is a photo of Bamboo Lane Cluster 14. See the date at the bottom? Yes, that’s an automated time and date, from our camera, to show that the photo was actually taken on that day. This shows the progress of the construction process — which I believe makes the homeowners even more excited. Let’s together witness the building coming to shape!

Homechoice Planners Non-Residential Project?

Homechoice Planners and Construction Corporation specializes in Customized Construction and made over a hundred of residential houses in CDO —— has non-residential projects?

 

YES, we also build non-residential buildings.

The most recent non-residential project we have is BIR’s new building. We have been given the opportunity to partner with one of the biggest contractor, UKC, to finish the building and we’re almost at the finish line.

One of our main role is to install walls and partitions, applying our plasswall system – 3rd, 4th and 5th floor, and I should say, our system caused this project hit the target.

We are entrusted with the walls and partitions now and maybe God will open the windows of heaven this year and  bless us with an entire building to build, just like our office.

Double Blessing 2020

2020 START!

Christmas Holiday was fun!

Parties here and there.
Gift giving everywhere.
It sure was a season of love and joy.

New Year Celebration came up next, families and relatives gathered together and shared stories and laughter…

 

….. and the celebration continues.

 

On the 1st week of January, a family dedicated their dream  home to the Lord with the help of our church partner, Assembly of God Church in Nazareth, and the date scheduled was significant to the family for it was a full moon.

The celebration continued on the 2nd week for another family dedicated their dream home as well.

 

2 homes dedicated in 1 month!

 

As what the bible says in Luke 16:10, “ Whoever can be trusted with small things can also be trusted with big things. Whoever is dishonest in little things will be dishonest in big things too.”

We can say that this double blessing is a manifestation that we did what must be done in the last year and that God is entrusting us with more families to partner with this year.

 

We are not just building a house but a home!

Steel Toe Saves the Worker’s Day!!

Dec 2, 2019 .. the company phone rang and the person calling said’ “Ma’am, naay aksidente ….”

 

Red sky in the morning, shepherds warning. Red sky at night, shepherds delight.

 

The sky can show us signs and we then know what it meant. How convenient it would be if all circumstances are like that but whether we like it or not, life has this unpredictable variable — ACCIDENTS — and one of our team members had his unpleasant encounter.

This incident no surprise for a construction company for others may tell us worse but it would be a lie if we’ll say we are not alarmed.

We rushed to the hospital and have his feet x-rayed and thank God no fracture was found.

 

The doctor said, “maygani ma’am kay naka steel toe, kung wala pa, fracture gyud ni.”

 

Wearing COMPLETE PPE sure is life saving!

 

Construction Workers oftentimes find wearing complete PPE a hassle but this incident is one of the moments when wearing PPE saved a person from an even more hassle situation.

Accidents can’t be predicted but can be prevented

This is an old saying but still remains true. So if you have a family member who works in a field like us, CONSTRUCTION, encourage them to wear their complete PPE for we treasure them more than they know.

 

 

Good news!

 

 

 

“Together Everyone Achieves More!”

This is the best acrostic meaning given to the word TEAM and the truth behind this meaning is appreciated worldwide.

 

 

 

 

As the building of Bamboo Lane progresses, Pueblo de Oro is looking for contractors to partner with whom they can fully trust and depend on. One of the great news is that we, Homechoice Planners, made the cut and was given more clusters to build! Together with Roy Engineering Services, Sta. Ana Raycas Corp., and Sentroid Engineering Services.

 

 

 

November 27, 2019 —  Commitment Commenced

The partnership is sealed with a prayer during the ground breaking ceremony, acknowledging that apart from God, this partnership will not be successful. As what the pastor said during the ceremony (paraphrased), “God will not let us down. He will never do for He loves us but we are capable of letting each other down so let’s offer ourselves unto the Lord”.

 

 

 

Congratulations to us team and let’s work beyond expectation!
Turn-over before deadline?

The Better Aid – Bamboo Lane

Pueblo de Oro is developing CDO’s 1st 3 Storey Townhouse and the kagay-anons are excited of the news. To match with the family’s eagerness to move and live in the 3 storey home, Pueblo de Oro opened its door and invited contractors to aid them with the demand and we, Homechoice Planners Construction Corp., is one of the privileged contractors.

Team Homechoice @ Bamboo Lane

 

Despite all the best wishes and good intentions, in life, we have our own shares of troubles and challenges and Pueblo de Oro is no exemption. For whatever reason, there’s a season when Pueblo de Oro’s payment got delayed and some contractors flared up which caused negatively on workmanship however we, along with a few other contractors, decided to continue the work with integrity regardless of the situation. Who understand contractors better than co-contractors?

When Pueblo de Oro got back on their feet and everything’s back to normal, they can now see who’s with them through thick and thin. They know who believes in them and trust them fully and to whom they could pour their complete trust into — we, Homechoice Planners, along with the few other contractors who aid them to the fullest.

The tough season brought forth great friendships and partnerships and this is beyond what the delayed payments could afford.

Team Homechoice, you’ve done it again.

What’s the LATEST HOUSE COMPLETED?

Four years as an ISO Certified Company, Homechoice Planners has attracted clients who are thorough in planning and execution of their house building project. Our system management has been put to the test when we built this house. Communication between client and the client is crucial for timing and target achievement. In the process, we learn a lot of better construction processes practiced abroad and welcome the improvement these can contribute to our system and products.

After several months of collaboration with client and suppliers, we happily completed the house last February 28, 2019 and delivered it to its owners who are satisfied with the result. It was custom-built with client-requested features which are the wooden planks on all floors, swing- out smoked-glass windows and steel doors.

drills-trainings-hpcc2018As a company that is committed to ensure most satisfied customers, deliver highest quality service and continually improving its quality management system; HomeChoice Planners and Construction Corporation continues to be in sync with its quality policy thru having safe work environment and competent workers. To ensure a safe work environment and competent workers, HPCC provides trainings, awareness and seminars to keep its employees equipped and informed.

HomeChoice Planners and Construction Corporation have recently been collaborating with other institutions and agencies in conducting trainings, seminars and the likes. Last 13th of August, fire drill training was conducted by Bureau of Fire Protection Bulua station. The said training serves as an awareness and prevention of fire; wherein the firefighters discussed the use of fire extinguisher and drills-trainings-hpcc-2018 the dos and don’ts during a fire outbreak. The company also coordinated with Department of Health and recently held its Basic Life Support training to chosen employees of HPCC. Last September 15, project foremen, project assistants, engineers and admin staffs were taught how to respond in a life emergency situation. And just yesterday, September 17, Healthcheck one of the diagnostic clinics here in Cagayan de Oro city was invited to conduct a random drug test to all employees of HPCC. These activities each with different goals have equipped the workers in various aspects; teachings not only limited to construction matters. In this way it has made the workers competent not only in the skills that they know but to other things as well.

Fire drill, random drug test and basic life support training, these are just some of the activities that HomeChoice Planners and Construction Corporation have been busy with lately, but it does not end here. More collaborative activities are in works for the company’s continual improvement, and that includes the worker’s competency, the system and the work environment.

Time of Refreshing

40400209_1777251402329870_6910886293782134784_oWhen we’re all stressed out and burnt out from work, what good remedy any of us could have but to take a time off from work. Working in a construction company is not easy especially the ones who are doing the hard labor under the scorching heat of the sun for eight hours; well actually in any company or whatever your job is, we all get tired and stressed out. And it is just right that every employee should take a breather from their exhausting work days.

Last August 25, HomeChoice Planners and Construction Corporation, SEAzed the day by bringing their staffs and workers out to the beach; and together they had fun games, sumptuous meal and enjoyed their fellowship. Aside from the games and bonding moments, they get to hear first the word of God. 40032879_1777248352330175_6480327221201338368_oIn everything we do, we should put God first thus hearing and sharing about Jesus is something that shouldn’t be taken for granted. And praise God for after hearing the word, five workers of the company has responded to the calling and decided to receive Jesus Christ in their lives and submitted to be baptized in water. The heavens are rejoicing for these people’s lives, they have decided to follow Jesus and it’s no turning back.

The one day breather from the stressful work might be bitin but it was more than enough time for a refreshing; be refreshed from all the work stressors or life in general. As the activity concluded, everyone felt refreshed physically, emotionally and above all spiritually.
