Lumiere Residences exemplifies DMCI’s engineering excellence
MANILA, Philippines – Leading developer DMCI Homes advances to the next phase of its growth with renewed focus on well-engineered residential structures for urban families. The company’s latest project located in Pasig City, Lumiere Residences, is an exemplar of the brand’s pioneering resort-inspired design coupled with engineering that will stand the test of time and elements.
Occupying an area of 11,582 square meters at the corner of Pasig and Shaw Blvd., two high-rise residential buildings will offer a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units. Lumiere Residences bears the DMCI Homes Quality Seal, wherein the development will undergo the “102-point inspection” which is a proprietary quality management system that involves a series of tests from construction to completion.
In designing the Pasig condo community, DMCI Homes partners with one of the country’s most trusted structural engineering consulting firms, Macro Consulting Structural Engineers. Macro’s managing partner, Ronald Santiago, said DMCI Homes also worked with consultants from Bangkok and modeled the design following the prescriptions of the current building code and performance-based analyses and testing for thresholds, making sure of Lumiere Residences’ structural integrity.
“Unlike other real estate firms, DMCI Homes as a builder-developer performs civil, structural and architectural works of the projects in-house”, added Gerry Ancheta, DMCI Homes VP for design and engineering.
Before acquiring land for development, a soil investigation is conducted first. Results are then passed on to renowned geotechnical experts like Brian Tan, who will recommend the capacity of the soil to structural designers like Santiago. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) certifications on fault line distances and National Structural Code of the Philippines (NSCP) guidelines and provisions are of course, mandatory considerations. In addition, all high-rise residential developments of DMCI Homes are reviewed by third-party consultants abroad who work with the local engineers on record.
With Lumiere Residences, DMCI Homes demonstrates its strength in engineering, and DMCI’s almost 60-year expertise in the construction and development industry. The condominium community is poised to become a landmark of stability, brilliance in design through its modern tropical architecture and optimized natural illumination and ventilation with Lumiventt.
