GOVT READIES RETROFITTING, UPGRADING BUILDINGS

0

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is preparing to retrofit and upgrade public buildings nationwide so these can be more resilient to earthquakes and other hazards in the country. ”We’re coming up with a template for the work,” said DPWH Secretary Rogelio Singson. He noted that hospitals, schools and other public buildings must be retrofitted and upgraded, not just repaired, to meet standards under the country’s National Building Code. The retrofitting and upgrading work is part of government’s disaster risk reduction thrust.
