Webinars in Focus

 

As part of our mission to educate and empower our community, we are committed to becoming the ultimate source of information about construction for Filipinos. As such, Pinoy Builders began to host webinars to help educate the community in various topics related to the construction industry.

 

We had one of our first webinars in July 2020, titled the Fundamentals of Cement and Concrete. The self-directed CPD webinar aimed to introduce the basics of cement and concrete as well as explain its types, usage, and properties. This webinar was graced by Engr. Dick Bon Salcedo and Engr. Mary Grace Hufana, Technical Services Officers from Holcim Philippines.

 

 

The webinar was then followed by another on October 2020 featuring Engr. Dolores Dollaga and Engr. Erwin Mendoza, the Technical Consultant and Technical Services Head of Holcim Philippines, respectively. They discussed the role of cement and aggregates in the durability of concrete.

Reden Reyes, the Health & Safety Manager of Holcim Philippines discussed not only the practices and requirements that the government requires but he also shed light on the potential violations and penalties that come with the Department Order.
