Five new multi-purpose buildings (MPBs) were built by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH)-Aklan District Engineering Office to various barangays of Banga in Aklan.
These buildings (covered courts) will serve as venues for barangay-related events for the residents of Banga, Aklan.
Citing a report from OIC-District Engineer Gener J. Abergas, DPWH-6 Regional Director Nerie D. Bueno said the completed buildings are located at Barangays Muguing, Cupang, Mangan, Jumarap and Daja Norte.
“These structures will provide a more ideal venue for any community-related activities among localities. Residents in this area can now engage in a variety of activities to protect themselves from the heat of the sun and heavy rains,” Engr. Bueno said.
The ₱2.9-million project in Muguing involves the expansion of a 434-square-meter covered court
The ₱1.9-million MPB in Cupang comprises the installation of a column, corbel beam, roof beam, and concrete gutter on a 470 square meter area.
