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.

HPCC ventures in Socialized Housing

38683801_1742209452500732_4111924680426782720_nFor almost 12 years now, Homechoice Planners and Construction Corporation has been a known builder of customized houses. And for almost 12 years, HPCC has been building mid to high end customized houses. HPCC may still be a baby in the construction industry, comparing to other renowned construction firms here in Cagayan de Oro City that has been in the industry for decades already, but one quality that makes HPCC stand out from the others is its innovativeness.

Like any other construction company here in the city, HPCC started out as a traditional builder of houses that is using CHB or the core hollow block. 38635912_1742209435834067_4238330876527640576_n And then in the year 2012, HPCC went out of the norm and started using the Plaswall Technology as their main ingredient in building houses, making them the first one to use this kind of system here in Cagayan de Oro City. HPCC’s very first project using the Plaswall Technology was a success and with this, the system has started to become HPCC’s trademark here in the city. Fast forward to this time, Plaswall Technology is still part of HPCC’s construction system. Because of the system’s efficacy, it has gained interest from clients and even other construction firms as to how it works. And this is the reason why one of the known housing developers here in the city has tapped with HPCC to venture in their newest development.

38528903_1742209449167399_1240406870280110080_nA Brown Company Inc. – the renowned developer of Xavier Estates, Teakwood Hills and Ventura Residences is developing new projects and one of it is a socialized housing located at Agusan, Cagayan de Oro City called Mangoville. This certain project is HPCC’s pioneering venture in socialized housing and collaboration with a housing developer. Last August 13, HPCC held its groundbreaking prayer and started its layout at Mangoville. This project is set to finish on November this year. And HPCC is excited about this project since it’s the company’s desire to have a venture in subdivision and housing developments.

Thanks to A Brown Company Inc. for opening its door to HPCC and for giving them the opportunity to start fulfilling one of their desires. Congratulations to HPCC and A Brown Company Inc. for this collaboration!

It’s all glory to God that the event was a success. Even in a gloomy weather, God orchestrated everything that all things happened smoothly and the event ended well.
