Upgrading the skills of construction professionals with the help of CW Home Depot and the Philippine Constructors Association

A 2-day technical seminar was launched by CW Home Depot in partnership with the Philippine Constructors Association (PCA) last March. The program aims to answer common misconceptions on related industry topics. Some 150 delegates convened to attend this knowledge- packed event comprising of engineers, architects, interior designers, head masons, head plumbers, head electricians and many others. Dubbed as “Installation & How to Primer”, the seminars were designed to give practical tips and also to answer the frequently asked questions on jobsites. Notable speakers were invited to share their expertise on Masonry & Tiles, Power Tools, Wood, Paints and Chemicals, Bath and Plumbing, Roofing, Metal Furring and Roughing-in Electrical. “Most of the construction workers nowadays still practice the traditional routines in which some may not be efficient to apply or probably the strategies they are using are considered obsolete today. Having a committee that primarily focuses on Manpower Development is essential in upgrading the skills of the industry people at all levels. We will support similar projects in the future for the benefit of the industry that we serve,” said Mr. Lito Garcia, PCA’s Manpower Development Committee Chair. Mr. Marcelo Abad, an engineer and a life member of Asian Institute of Management, was also invited to facilitate the whole day seminars and also provided additional information on the topics. CW Home Depot plans to organize related seminars in the next quarter as one of their many info- sharing contributions to the building and construction industry. CW Home Depot is a joint venture of Cebu Oversea Hardware Inc. and WestPoint Industrial Sales Co. Currently it has seven existing branches located in Ortigas, Westgate – Alabang, Balintawak, Makati, Manila Bay, Las Piñas, and San Fernando, Pampanga. The building and construction haven is set to open its Commonwealth branch in September 2013 to cater to the growing demand of quality building, finishing and furnishing products in the area.
