A three-storey “green” building worth P300 million will soon rise in La Trinidad, Benguet, the strawberry-producing town’s mayor, Edna Tabanda, said.
Tabanda announced the environment-friendly building will be constructed in a 4,000-square meter lot at the public market area through a Build-Operate-Lease-Transfer (BOLT) scheme.
“Everything is being ironed out so that there will be no major problem when the construction starts in at the heart of the municipality,” Tabanda said.
The mayor said it will be the first green building in La Trinidad, and possibly, in the entire Benguet province.
The structure’s design will have renewable resources like using sunlight, plants and trees through green roofs, rain gardens and reduction of rainwater run-off, Tabanda said.
“With our growing population, the project will further boost the economic development and attend to the needs of our municipality,” Tabanda said.
