At the leased property adjacent to the Philippine National Bank (PNB) and the Negros Occidental Multi-Purpose Activity Center (NOMPAC) will rise an 8- storey hotel with 150 rooms at the North Capitol Road and is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2016, he said.

The governor also said, there will also be a four-storey office building with 6,000 square meters of commercial space for lease to commercial enterprises, including BPOs.

It is targeted to be completed by the first quarter of 2017, he added.

The mall, Marañon said, will be called “Ayala Mall Capitol Central,” which will span a whole block at the back of the Capitol building encompassing North and South Capitol Roads, Gatuslao and San Juan streets.

“It will be a regional mall with 70,000 square meters of commercial space and an event center that can accommodate large gatherings,” he said, adding that it will be opened by the second quarter of 2017.

ALI will also start the construction of its “Amaia Steps Capitol Central” residential condominium which will be a 9-storey two-tower building with 288 units per building at San Juan streets and will have three to four years to finish the first tower, Marañon said.

He said that per his estimate, the workforce that the project will need will be about 5,000.

“They will hire local workers, but they should be at least high school graduate and have finished a course accredited by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA),” he pointed out.

Gomez told Negros Daily Bulletin that PCAB, an attached agency of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), said they can conduct an investigation

Gomez told Negros Daily Bulletin that PCAB, an attached agency of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), said they can conduct an investigation against erring contractors but there should be a formal complaint.

“We cannot monitor what is happening all over the Philippines. We only have the DTI’s local offices and the local contractors associations,” she said.

She said the mandate of PCAB is to issue or deny licenses based on qualifications, to suspend or revoke licences of erring contractors and issue rules and regulations governing the construction industry.

Under R.A. 4566 as amended by P.D. No. 1746 provides that no contractor (including sub-contractor and specialty contractor) shall engage in the business of contracting without first having secured a PCAB license to conduct business.
