Bigger projects underway this 2022

In 2021, Aboitiz Construction, Inc. (ACI) implemented its ‘Big Shift Strategy’ as a significant business pivot in order to maneuver in a new market environment. The company reset itself by strengthening its financial performance, revamping critical processes and systems, and investing in organization and talent capability.

Aboitiz Construction achieved its business recovery goals last year. It provided thousands of jobs nationwide, contributing to the economy and elevating its social value in communities where it operated.

As the company celebrates 46 solid years in the construction industry, it is poised to further grow and fulfill its vision of becoming a premier construction company that is committed to advance business and communities.

“2021 is our recovery period and through teamwork, we became stronger and steadfast. As we drive towards expanding operations and setting a national footprint, we have started to implement programs that will continue this momentum through 2022,” said Aboitiz Construction Chairman and President Anton Mari G. Perdices.

2021 Operations and Portfolio

To secure financial gain, Aboitiz Construction balanced its project portfolio and diversified its technical capabilities, creating a wide array of construction projects nationwide. The company is now focused on heavy and light industries, infrastructure, and maintenance and manpower services.

CDP Plant - Aboitiz Construction
Last September 2021, Aboitiz Construction completed its construction project for a mining plant owned by CD Processing Ltd. in Toledo City, Cebu. The project will contribute to sustainable and responsible mining which involves operations with better waste management processes.

Under the heavy industries, Aboitiz Construction helped improve the operations of the 105-MW Sarangani Energy Corporation’s thermal power plant through the completion of maintenance and shutdown works. The project will contribute enough power supply to the areas in Mindanao. Another milestone was the completion of the construction of CD Processing (CDP) Ltd.’s copper ore sorting and processing plant in Toledo City, Cebu. The new facility will manage mining wastes efficiently.

In the first half of 2021, the company also completed the civil works for the expansion of a fuel storage facility in Subic, Zambales and finished construction works for a local manufacturer and distributor of high-grade oleochemicals in Misamis Oriental.

For infrastructure, it contributed to the efficient logistics of agricultural and commercial products through the design and construction of Berth 4 for Davao International Container Terminal in Panabo City, Davao del Norte. In November 2021, the operations to construct transmission lines that will supply power to businesses located in Light Industry Science Park (LISP 4) and residentials areas in Pueblo de Oro in Malvar, Batangas commenced.

Last year, Aboitiz Construction successfully fabricated and installed 20 tons of pillars to the FSTR, a 109-meter high-speed catamaran ferry that was completely delivered by Austal Philippines and considered to be the largest aluminum vessel ever constructed in the country.

In addition, Aboitiz Construction completed the fabrication and installation works for the 20-tons pillars of Austal Philippines’ FSTR, the largest aluminum vessel in the Philippines.

Under its light industries belt, the company has started the construction of a 26,000-square-meter- warehouse and office buildings in Paranaque City. It is by far the largest warehouse facility of the logistics giant. Another big ticket project that is expected to be completed this year is the construction of a 6,000-square-meter warehouse for a local food company in Iloilo City.

The Aboitiz Construction team draws pride in commencing newly awarded projects such as the site-development for Lima Land, Inc. in Batangas and a pipeline project for a fuel storage facility in Zambales.

It will further expand into water and transportation infrastructure, projects for ready-built factories, and maintenance services. “In line with our vision to solidify our national footprint, we are also expanding our portfolio and continuously looking for better ways to help in building a better future for a better Philippines,” said Levi Agoncillo, Aboitiz Construction’s Vice President for Business Development, Tender Planning, Engineering, and Design.
