No building construction will be allowed in Quezon City starting April without complying with “green building| standards.

QC Department of Building Official (DBO) head Engr. Isagani R. Versoza Jr. said that the QC government will strictly adopt and implement this coming April the city’s green building infrastructure ordinance, which mandates the use of eco-friendly technology and system in the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance including the retrofitting, of building projects in the city.

The move, Verzosa said, is in line with Mayor Herbert M. Bautista’s support to the government’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gases and other hazardous emissions from buildings and other structures.

“Our Mayor strongly believes that the implementation of greenhouse policy emphasizes the need to promote and protect the interrelation of the natural ecosystem and development. These are the key factors that contribute to sustainable development, empowerment of people and urban development,” the DBO chief said.

Versoza, who is proud of the fact that QC is the pioneer among local government units in the country in the adoption and implementation of green building infrastructure, said Bautista’s administration strictly adheres to energy efficiency and cost effectiveness  in an effort to mitigate the adverse impacts on environment degradation.

However, the DBO chief explained that before the actual adoption and implementation of the ordinance, his office will be holding a symposium on February 23, 2011 at UP Ayala Technohub, UP Diliman, to allow developers, contractors, professions, building owners and government engineers to clarify issues regarding the green building standards.

“Those who want to be guided accordingly with the new guidelines, procedure requirements, forms and other relevant information on how to apply for newly adopted green building certification, which is a pre-requisite in applying for permits in the construction, renovation or retrofitting of buildings and other structures in QC, should attend the symposium or visit the QC government websites,www.quezon city.gov.ph. or contact Frediswinda de Guzman at (632) 444-72-72 local 8905 for details,” Versoza said.

He also said that there is an incentive in the form of tax credits for the land users, developers and planners who incorporate, implement, install and actually use environment friendly technologies that promote a string biodiversity, improve the state of health of the population and abate the continuing destruction of ecosystem, ground water and air quality in their building project.-30- Maureen Quinones, PAISO
