DMCI Homes demonstrates engineering excellence with Lumiere Residences

January 24, 2014

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 sqm. at the corner Pasig and Shaw Blvd., two high-rise residential buildings will offer a mix of 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, and 3-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 for 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, Engr. Ronald Santiago says that 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 inhouse”, says Engr. Gerry Ancheta, DMCI Homes VP for Design & Engineering.

Before acquiring land for development, a soil investigation is conducted first. Results are then passed on to renowned geotechnical experts like Engineer Brian Tan, who will recommend the capacity of the soil to the structural designers like Santiago. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) certifications on fault line distances and National Structural Code of the Philippines or 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.

A Geotechnical Engineering Consultant to DMCI Homes, Engineer Tan recalls the 2004 Metro Manila Earthquake Impact Reduction Study which reveals that improperly built dwellings will bear the brunt of damage in the event of a major temblor in the NCR. Tan, who holds post-graduate engineering degrees from UP Diliman and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, underscores the need for good design and construction. “I think the point is that it’s really all about design and construction. And at this point, when people are more anxious in choosing the right investment and value for hard-earned money, it’s really a matter of trust and relying on reputation.”

With Lumiere Residences, DMCI Homes demonstrates its strength in engineering, and the 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.

The development is located within minutes from business districts and lifestyle centers so parents can easily come home and unwind with their family, instead of spending long hours on the road. Resort-inspired amenities and extended patios bring nature in to complement the lush surrounding landscape and Antipolo hills on the horizon.

Upgraders, young professionals, and start up families from Pasig, Mandaluyong, Quezon City, and Rizal, as well as seekers of halfway homes, and investors are invited to take a look at how good design and construction makes a difference in safeguarding and uplifting the lives of Filipino families.
