11960140_855445674510452_7544493747301400079_nAs an approach to the modernization and innovation in construction, HomeChoice Planners and Construction Corporation has ventured in the Lightweight Concrete Technology as an alternative to the traditional concrete cement. This technology is also known as the Portafoam System manufactured by DRN Concrete Resources, a company that specializes in Industrialized Building System. For the company to have further insight and knowledge on the said technology, they have invited one of the known consultants of DRN Concrete Resources namely Dr. Norizal Bin MD Noordin.

This invitation of DRN Resources’ consultant has made a way for HPCC to collaborate with other organizations; introducing the new technology to different entities. During Dr. Norizal’s visit, meetings and speaking engagements were part of his itinerary. On his first day, a courtesy call at the Vice Mayor’s office was scheduled. Dr. Norizal was able meet and greet Hon. Ian Acenas last August 17. For the next days, Dr. 11899875_855446917843661_8954629010484059744_nNorizal visited and had a tour around the leader in advance coal power generation technology, known as Steag State Power Inc. The said company was located at Villanueva, Misamis Oriental. The establishing of rapport at Steag State Power Inc. was a way of HPCC to have future collaboration with the said company thru DRN Resources’ technology.

Aside from scheduled meetings, HPCC also arranged two speaking engagements for Dr. Norizal; seminars for students and local contractors for the same purpose; to disclose the use of Lightweight Concrete Technology. Last August 19 was the International Forum for all 5th year Civil Engineering and Architecture students that was held at Capitol University. This event was collaboration with Capitol University and James Hardie Philippines that served as the major sponsor. The attendees were students from Mindanao University of State and Technology, Central Mindanao University, Xavier University, Cagayan de Oro College-Phinma and Liceo de Cagayan 11947519_855449234510096_2869765646873853513_nUniversity. The other seminar was held last August 20 at Prawn House Restaurant for all contractors and builders of Cagayan de Oro City. James Hardie Philippines was also a partner of HPCC for this event.

Every event and activity attended by DRN Resources has been a success. Its purpose of imparting knowledge regarding the new technology was fulfilled. And HPCC believes that this partnership will eventually expand to future endeavors. HPCC would like to thank everyone who made every event possible. Looking forward for the continuous support and partnership!
