TACLOBAN CITY– The construction of a multi-purpose building for the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP)-Leyte Chapter, located in this city, has reached a milestone, with completion currently standing at 15%.

This significant progress marks a step forward in the development of the P100-million project, which is funded under the General Appropriations Act 2023.

The project encompasses the construction of a three-story multi-purpose building, complete with a roof deck, designed to serve the needs of the IBP Leyte Chapter.

The building is set to feature a spacious lounge area on the ground floor, conference and training rooms on the second floor, as well as quarters and other amenities. Notably, the building will be equipped with an elevator for accessibility purposes.

Scheduled to be completed within 240 calendar days, the project commenced with a Groundbreaking Ceremony on March 3, 2023.

During the ceremony, representatives from the Tacloban City District Engineering Office (TCDEO), the IBP Leyte Chapter, and Tingog Sinirangan collaborated to bury the building plan, marking the official start of construction.

In light of these developments, OIC District Engineer Rebecca G. Yuse issued a statement expressing optimism about the project’s progress.
