Army's 547 ECB to construct P2-M EP barracks in Kampo Ranao

ICC Iligan City (21 November) -- At least Php2 million will be spent to construct one (1) unit of an Enlisted Personnel (EP) Barracks inside Kampo Ranao, Marawi City.

This was revealed Lt. Col. Gerardo Catindoy, Commander of the 547 Engineer Construction Battalion (ECB) which is tasked to undertake the project, during its groundbreaking ceremony in the area.

Formerly called Camp Keithy, Kampo Ranao which occupies an area of 4,687 ha. of military reservation is now home of the 3rd Infantry (Haribon) Brigade, 1st Infantry Division (103rd Bde), Philippine Army.

With a measurement of 9 m. x 38 m. and a floor area of 342 sq.m., which can accommodate more or less 120 EP's with basic amenities of toilets, bath, wash area and a day room, the said barracks has a site location that conforms with the proposed camp development plan.

As such, the plan is only an initial scan of the unit requirements in the long-term and provides only a graphical spatial framework for future developments of the Kampo Ranao, Catindoy said.

Hence, the more comprehensive long-range plan containing detailed studies and analysis can be obtained through the preparation of a master development plan that will serve as a detailed guide for the long term physical growth of the camp.

Catindoy added that the project duration is only120 calendar days and thus commit to finish the project before the target completion date.

The groundbreaking ceremony was led by Lt. Gen. Victor Ibrado, Commanding General, PA, Col. Rey C. Ardo, Commander, 103rd Bde and Col. Michaelo Salvaleon, Commander, 55th Engineer Brigade, PA. (OSM Radyo ng Bayan) [top]
