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!

HPCC towards Innovation

HomeChoice Planners and Construction Corporation is making another mark towards innovativeness by embarking on a new venture. For three years now, HPCC has already been known for using the Plaswall Technology on their projects. It has made the company as one of the contractors in Cagayan de Oro City to use a modern construction approach. And with the company’s commitment in new innovation and modern construction, HPCC has ventured in yet another technology – the Lightweight Foamed Concrete Technology.

This innovation of using Lightweight Foamed Concrete Technology is another method of HPCC in modern construction. This certain technology is made from mixing preformed stable foam into slurry of cement, sand and water. The stable foam is the important ingredient in the making of this concrete, and it must be stable and last through the initial stages of mixing the concrete. As a way of incorporating the Lightweight Foamed Concrete on HPCC’s future projects, they have invited a Malaysian technology-based company that specializes in Industrialized Building System – DRN Concrete Resources. The said company provides consultancy, technology and products related to Lightweight Foamed Concrete Technology.

The Lightweight Foamed Concrete or the Portafoam System is a widely used technology in Malaysia and also of some other countries. Portafoam’s component makes it lighter than the traditional CHB. And it also possesses special properties such as low thermal conductivity and high fire resistance. Its density ranges from as low as 400 kg/m3 to as high as 1600 kg/m3; allowing it to be used in a variety of applications such as pre-cast wall blocks and panels, cast in-situ lightweight, floor and roof screeds, trench reinstatement, road foundations and void filling.

HPCC continues to widen its horizon through innovations such as this Portafoam System. HPCC believes that through the use of this technology, modern construction in Cagayan de Oro City will be more significant. And with this step towards innovation, Mindanao will soon be following the modern construction trend of Luzon and Visayas. And these new technologies for modern construction will soon be widely used here in Mindanao. Cheers to modernization of construction!

HPCC collaborates with Tuscania CDO

Tuscania-homechoice-project-capriTuscania CDO is a renowned subdivision that is located in the heart of the city – Kauswagan,
Cagayan de Oro City.  It is an Italian-inspired village with houses that is uniquely designed in sync with the subdivision’s theme.

And now, HomeChoice Planners and Construction Corporation proudly announces its collaboration with Tuscania CDO. It was decided that one of Tuscania’s house models – Capri, a bungalow type of house will be built by HPCC. Of course, in building the Capri model house, we’ll be using the Plaswall Technology. This partnership with Tuscania CDO is another way for the company to further promote the usage of Plaswall Building System here in Cagayan de Oro City. Plaswall Building System is widely used in Luzon and Visayas already and HPCC aims to spread the use of it here in Mindanao. With the advantage that the technology’s giving among other materials used, the turn-over of the house is at its best quality compared to the others.

Just last May 20, 2013, a groundbreaking and lot dedication ceremony was conducted. It has been practiced by HPCC to hold such activity first before starting the actual layout of the project. It is essential to offer our every endeavor to the Lord Almighty; the earth is His and everything in it. So, we should honor Him in everything that we do because it has been given by the Lord.

HPCC intends the faster delivery of the project by using the Plaswall Building System; that’s why the company targeted to finish the project in less than a month. And in just 11 days of work, layout and structural works are done. For next week scheduled works, it is set to work on the semi finishing of the house such as skim coating and furring. Further updates of the project can be seen posted on our facebook page and company website. So, just check it out guys! We’ll keep you updated!

The Rise of HCB Building

homechoice-buildingHPCC marches forth! It was not so long ago when HomeChoice Builders Corporation was established. It was founded in June 2006 and then became HomeChoice Planners and Construction Corporation in June 2009. In its seven short years of existence in the construction business, HPCC has already built a trademark in the said field.

For HPCC’s seven years of existence, its advocacy has not been merely about building houses. As the company continually grows, its advocacy also began spreading to wider scopes and thus made the company more successful. As such, conducting bible study services every Monday has made a great impact to the success of the company. Putting God first and acknowledging Him in all the things that He has done has committed HPCC to be a blessing unto others.

In the seven years service of the company, it has built almost 150 houses to date. With the number of houses built, there were almost 150 families also that HPCC was able to help in realizing their dreams. And of course, HomeChoice Planners wouldn’t be able to build all these houses without its staffs and construction workers. HPCC exists in this business not just to build houses but also to help other people. And because the company is a blessing to other people, HPCC has been blessed more with God’s graces.

hcb-buildingOne of the great blessings that HPCC has received is the soon to construct HCB Building. This very first commercial building project of HPCC is a proof that the company has grown in the construction field. And just last April 2, 2013, HPCC conducted a groundbreaking and lot dedication ceremony for the said building at Golden Glow North Commercial Arcade.

This new project is a four storey commercial building; where in it will cater to commercial and office spaces for rent. There’s also a floor that will be intended for room rentals also. As soon as the building will be finished, HomeChoice Planners and Construction Corporation will be transferring its office to the new building. This is an exciting project because the Plaswall Building System will be used; and this will be the first commercial building here in Cagayan de Oro City that will be using the said technology. Updates of this project will be posted soon. Until then!
