Calbayog government center

July 5, 2019

CALBAYOG CITY – The Department of Public Works and Highways constructed a Government Center at Calbayog City. The three-storey building has a revised contract amount of P28.7 million. It has a total area of 488.78 square meters.

This new building will house government offices such as the National Bureau of Investigation while others are still under negotiations such as PhilHealth and Pag-IBIG. This is part of the city’s goal to put government offices in one place for the convenience of the transacting public.

The building is situated at Barangay Bagacay where other offices are already in existence (BIR, PNP and the Procurement Office). This idea of bringing together government offices in one place will bring efficiency and faster transaction to better serve the public.

The project is a product of a collaboration between the Local Government Office giving the Department of Public Works and Highways the right to build such a structure that is beneficial to the people of Calbayog City.
