Metaphil builds own staffhouse in Prenza, Cebu

  • New staff house was built with materials accumulated over the years and eliminates renting accommodation outside
  • It has 12 single rooms for officers and managers and 12 double rooms for superintendents and supervisors

For several years, Metaphil would rent various staff houses to provide accommodation for officers, managers, supervisors, and senior staff who were assigned in Balamban, Cebu to do international and local fabrication work for Tsuneishi Heavy Industries (Cebu), Inc.In 2014, the company decided to utilize the material it had accumulated over the years to build its own staff house and eliminate house rental expenses.

The building was designed by Ric M. Ofqueria, the project manager, while “back to shop” team members waiting for new Metaphil assignments contributed the manpower.

The staff house is located in Metaphil’s heavy equipment depot in Prenza, Balamban, Cebu, along the Transcentral Highway, and has 12 single rooms for officers and managers and 12 double rooms for superintendents and supervisors. It was completed in May with blessing and inauguration held on May 23 celebrated by Rev. Fr. Randy C. Nebria and attended by Metaphil’s President & Chief Executive Officer Nap Pe, Vice President for Operations Jonathan Bendebel, and several other officers, team leaders, and team members.
