DMSF to build 2 more buildings

THE Davao Medical School Foundation (DMSF) will build two green technology-inspired school buildings inside its 2.5-hectare campus along DMSF Drive, Bajada in Davao City.

DMSF president Dr. Jonathan Alegre said they the school is allocating around P250 million for the two structures, which boast of state-of-the-art facilities and utilize eco-friendly materials.

The first building, a three-storey facility, will be sitting in an 800-square meter lot. Behind it will rise the 10-storey building covering a total of 1,100 square meter lot.

Alegre said the 1st floor of the three-storey infrastructure will be utilized for dental infirmary, storage area for equipment, and operating rooms. An amphitheatre will be set aside for the 2nd and 3rd floors with a total capacity of 800 to 1,000 guests.

The 10-storey building will house wider library spaces and bigger laboratories. This edifice will also cater to the school's expansion needs for offices and conference rooms.

On the 10th floor will nestle an overlooking amusement place such as coffee shop, health and facilities, and a gymnasium.

"An affluent number of plants will spruce up the buildings," Alegre said during the regular Kapehan sa sa Dabaw and SM City Davao yesterday.

The new school buildings will also have solar panels and wind turbines. The energy generated will be utilized for the corridor lights in every floor to lessen the energy consumption of the entire facility.

The basement of the 10-storey structure can cater up to 30 vehicles.

"All floors will have tanks to store the rain water, during rainy season," Alegre said.

The two buildings will be connected by an adjoining a bridge.

"We need to uplift the standards," Alegre added.

According to the DMSF president, the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges, and Universities (Paascu) requires better facilities, including improved laboratories in order to get accreditation.

Among the 40 medical schools in the country, only six have Paascu accreditation. Alegre said they are hoping to also receive the same accreditation at the completion of the green buildings.

"If a school gets Paascu accreditation, it's already world-class," he said.

Aside from its goal to get accreditation from the agency, DMSF will construct the new buildings will attend to the growing number of students.

Aelgre said DMSF listed around 1,000 students for the first semester, with 200 of whom international students from India and Nepal.

The groundbreaking for the new buildings is slated August 1, which is in time for the DMSF's 36th founding anniversary. The new infrastructures are expected to be completed in a year's time.

The Davao Medical School Foundation (DMSF) will establish a 10-storey green building to house its various laboratories, classrooms and spa.

DMSF president Jonathan A. Alegre said yesterday in the weekly press forum at Cafe Rysus in SM City Davao that it will be constructed within the 2.5 hectare lot of the school at Medical School Drive, J. P. Laurel Ave.

He said there is a need to construct the building to provide more spaces for a wider library and bigger laboratories. There will be also a gymnasium, health and wellness center, coffee shop and classrooms in the 10-storey green building.

“It is one way to uplift the standards of the schools. Having a wider library and bigger laboratories, for instance, are among the requirements for the school to become accredited by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities,” he said.

Solar panels will be installed in the green building.

The groundbreaking ceremony of the 10-storey building will be conducted on August 1 in celebration of the school’s 36th Founding Anniversary.

A three-storey building will be also established in front of the planned 10-storey building.

The three-storey building will house the amphitheater and dental infirmary that would be installed with the state-of-the-art equipment. There would be a bridge from its rooftop to connect with the 10-storey building.

The fourth floor of the 10-storey building will serve as a venue for the schools food court while the spa, gymnasium and fitness center will be situated in the 10th floor.

Alegre said the establishment of the facility will also address the growing student population of the school. The number of students in DMSF is projected to grow by 10% annually. At present, the school registered about 1,100 students including 200 foreigners mostly from India, Malaysia and Nepal.

Unta by the road ang ten floors para mas makita iyang kataas and then reserve the inner spaces for less dense developments or better yet, keep them as open spaces..

Parang in the case of addu, at some point kasi medyo eyesore na ang weiman and canisius bldgs. Kung ako lang, gusto ko idemolish yun after the community tower, pero looks like the tower, at its current height, wont suffice to replace the classrooms. I can imagine a long stretch of greens from the tower to rosario bldg..ganda nun..nakakawala kahit papano ng stress..:)
