BGC | Bench Tower [23F|com]

Since no thread was still created for this project, I initiated to start this thread. They are already finished with the digging and the foundation and steel bars are already protruding from the ground-floor level.

Article from Malaya Newspaper (August 24, 2010):


Megawide bags Bench Tower project
Megawide Construction Corp. has bagged the contract for the construction of Bench Tower, the home of one of the country’s most popular clothing lines and its image models.

Megawide chief information officer Louie Ferrer said Megawide was tapped by Suyen Corp. to build the P710-million Bench Tower inside Fort Bonifacio in Taguig City by Suyen.

"Once completed, the building will be housing some of the country’s popular movie and television superstars," Ferrer said.

Bench counts Dingdong Dantes, Piolo Pascual, Diether Ocampo, Georgina Wilson, and Kim Chiu among its image models.

To be completed in October next year, the 23-storey building on a 2,500 square meter prime property at the Fort, will officially become Suyen’s corporate office and will also house FIX, Kashieca, Human, and other affiliated brands.

The Bench Tower will also become one of the first green buildings inside Fort Bonifacio. It is being built with high performance windows that can reduce power consumption by 25 percent.

"This building is due for a Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification of Gold Standard. It even has a rain collector for water recycling and its one side is covered with a virtual garden wall," Ferrer said.

Bench Tower is the second big ticket project Megawide will be working on this year after the P1.30 billion Belle Hotel Casino in Parañaque City.

Megawide said its distinct advantage is in its advanced pre-cast concrete building technology, safety and quality records.

Megawide has a Triple A license from the Philippine Contractors Accreditation Board. Antel Land Holdings, Bellevue Group, Prince Jun Development Group, and SM Development Corp are some of its major partners.- Irma Isip

News Article from Businessworld (August 23, 2010):

Bench building new HQ in Taguig

SUYEN Corp., the company behind the homegrown Bench clothing brand, has tapped Megawide Construction Corp. to build its proposed P710-million, 23-storey headquarters at Fort Bonifacio, the contractor firm said in a statement yesterday.

The tower is slated to become “one of the first green buildings inside Fort Bonifacio” once it is completed by October 2011, Megawide Construction said.

The Taguig building will be fitted with windows claimed to reduce power consumption by 25%, a rain collector for water recycling, and a “virtual garden wall.”

“This building is due for a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification of Gold Standard,” the construction firm added, referring to a globally recognized seal awarded to energy-efficient structures.

Earlier, Megawide Construction was tapped to construct the P1.3-billion hotel casino of listed property developer Belle Corp., which is majority owned by the family of mall and banking magnate Henry Sy.

Megawide Construction has started laying the foundation for the casino project. It expects to complete the casino floor and one of two 15-storey hotel towers in 12 months.

The contractor had said it was planning to raise as much as P3 billion through an initial public offering in November to fund expansion plans that will allow it to cater to projects from the Ayala property and banking group.

Its client list also includes SM Development Corp., the property arm of the Sy-led SM Investments Corp.

Last month, the 14-storey Sun Life Centre at Bonifacio Global City, which is expected to be completed next year, was topped off -- the first building in the country with a pre-certification from LEED to reach that stage of construction.

The Sun Life building will have a gross leasable area of 22,500 square meters. -- J. A. D. Hermosa

Take note ha, ang bilis ng construction nito... target completion is October 2011. That's just 1 year away. Almost sabay lang sila ng TFR (the Fort Residences) ng turn-over.

Bench Tower



The 22-storey Bench Office Building Project is situated at 30th Street , Rizal Drive of Fort Bonifacio, Global City in Taguig, which belongs to one of prestigious developments in the Philippines. The site is accessible to famous Fort Bonifacio Highstreet, International Schools, International airports, interesting entertainment hubs and business districts. This 2,173.00 square meter project’s proximity to infrastructure development makes it easier for users to access different places around the metro.

The basic design concept of the building is to create a modern contemporary building that weaves through the urban fabric but will boasts a new and innovative design approach to office buildings. By integrating green pockets, proper orientation, appropriate and well-considered building materials, the design not only provides its users an efficient workplace but also a daily living environment that is comfortable, healthy and different. The key design features of the development are open-plan office layout where tenants allow addition and relocation of cellular office within several office areas for future increases in the number and size of rooms to be efficient in its operations.

Another green aspect of its architectural design involves the use of light colors for the building, glass-curtain wall oriented along north-south axis, an approach in façade design that allows natural lighting to penetrate. There also several punch-through/recessed part of the façade treated with functional louvers that contribute to the high-shading coefficient of the building. This elevation punch-throughs not only contribute to the passive green strategies but also gives the building a play of mass and volume, shades and shadows.

Kaya siguro mabilis ang construction kasi pre-cast daw ang gagamitin.
