Building Services in Manila

Manila, the capital of the Philippines, is the world’s most densely populated city and so efficient building services are critical for the smooth running of its infrastructure.

With a population of 13 million in the urban area and 1.6 million in the city area, Manila has plenty of call for building services to improve its premises, both commercial and residential.

And as it’s frequently subject to adverse weather conditions, and natural disasters as a country, sustainable building solutions are in high demand.

With high-end hotels for visitors to Manila and beyond, plus a drive to rebuild or improve residential areas for locals, there are numerous building projects underway at any one time in the Philippines.

Our building services team have been delighted to play a part in advising on and helping to install new sustainable solutions to help maximise the building efficiencies, particularly in Manila.

As budding industries and tourist traffic emerge in the Philippines, itself made up of 7,000 islands, there has been a surge in demand for building services as new hotels, holiday complexes, business premises, restaurants and leisure facilities open their doors to overseas visitors, local residents and internal travellers.

As a result, BSG teams are finding themselves increasingly working on projects in Manila either directly or remotely.

The expansive development of the hotel and leisure industry and an overhaul of residential apartments and homes in Manila’s inner city neighbourhoods particularly provides opportunities for innovation in the construction industry – and with it sustainable solutions within their building systems.

Our teams at BSG have been able to share good practice with local architects and international construction teams in the development of sustainable building services and systems.

We work with offices, shops, restaurants, commercial premises, residential use premises, large and small businesses and high end residential blocks for tourists and Manila locals alike.

A focus on sustainability is often important in the eyes of companies as their brand hopes to showcase their efforts to reduce their carbon footprint and attract discerning guests and environmentally-conscious companies to invest in – or relocate to – Manila.

The health, safety and comfort of all the country’s building users are key considerations for owners and developers who equip and maintain building systems.

Efficient air conditioning and ventilation systems are vital to ensure the air quality is in peak condition as breathing clean air is important whilst spending time in indoor environments and the heat outside can be oppressive and polluted.

Suitable levels of lighting are a must for users of commercial buildings in Manila as they provide a place of work for many people who spend prolonged periods of time inside them on a daily basis and the country is trying to capitalise on its tourist base to attract new investment to the country.

Excellent fire and security systems for their peace of mind are all catered for by our teams in their advice and service maintenance work, especially as the Philippines face annual natural disaster threats.

Our building services experience is key to ensuring the health, safety and comfort of residents in commercial buildings around the world but is much sought after in the Philippines with its developing economy and associated building work.

Our teams provide excellent service to ensure that all the Philippines’ public buildings are as compliant as possible with international building standards and provide a positive and green-focused environment in which to work and relax.
