ProgeCAD supports the Philippines

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

The ProgeCAD company could not hold itself aloof from the recent devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines early November 2013 and lent a helping hand to the Philippine population by making a donation to the Médecins Sans Frontièrs (MSF Doctors Without Borders) Organisation. Furthermore, ProgeCAD Philippines was on the ground in northern Cebu to hand out relief goods and together with the United Architects of the Philippines Organisation they were being actively involved in devising and constructing emergency shelters to make it possible their prompt deployment.

The ProgeCAD company considers it vitally important to make every possible contribution to support disaster relief and recovery efforts in the Philippines after the recent natural disaster, as it really can make a difference.

The scale of the calamity is enormous and affects especially the central area of the Philippines. The typhoon has caused millions of victims and devastating damages leaving hundreds of thousands of people without their homes. Just like many other Organisations worldwide ProgeCAD has mobilised the company resources to promptly assist the affected in the disaster area and made a charitable contribution to Médecins Sans Frontièrs (MSF Doctors Without Borders) to support the massive recovery efforts right after the natural disaster

Many Humanitarian Organisations are collecting medical and food supplies to help the affected by the calamity in the Philippines. People from numerous villages and towns have to rebuild their lives in the months ahead which means that everyone’s support counts and is highly anticipated

The company has always been particularly sensitive to social issues and over the years regularly offered its support for disaster recovery efforts in different corners of the world. As an example, in 2006, the company helped to raise funds for the victims of Tsunami in Asia, in 2009 for humanitarian relief operations in Darfur and, finally, in 2012 for the reconstruction of Haiti after the earthquake.

Damiano Croci, CEO at ProgeCAD, commented: “All ProgeCAD heartfelt sympathy goes out to all the affected by this horrible disaster in the Philippines. With so many people in need, we want to lend our support to those who have lost everything. We hope our donation will contribute to the common goal of helping people in the Philippines to rebuild their lives in the wake of this natural disaster”.

ProgeCAD is striving to raise awareness of the urgent support needed for the Philippine population and it encourages everybody to contribute to this cause. Please visit the www.msf.org website to learn more about their relief efforts.

80th National Annual Convention: PIA and ProgeCAD support the “green cause”

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

The ProgeCAD team recommends to all his followers the participation in an interesting event:  the 80th National Annual Convention. It will take place in Cebu City from the next 21st to 24th of February and it is organised by the Philippine Institute of Architects (PIA) and supported by our ProgeCAD Philippines partner.
“Touching Earth, touching Lives” is the main theme of the meeting, it will focus on ecological and social awareness in design. The Philippine Institute of Architects takes always care of environmentally friendly topics showing its green advocacy as well as ProgeCAD.
Architect Dioscoro Alesna Jr, event co-chairman for plans and programs, states: “The theme mainly covers on how architecture literally affects the earth, the way in which a building “sits” in its environment and its visual impact in the cityscape and how we, as architects, touch people’s lives with our designs”. His sentence sums up the peculiar aspects of the forthcoming convention. It is very actual especially now after the recent natural disasters occurred in the Philippines, where new design solutions were developed, for example: emergency housing and refugee camp using paper-tube walls or paper poles used also in Japan and Africa.
In fact, the Philippine Institute of Architects sees the convention as a way where architects can discuss and plan new developments in case of calamities. The three days meeting is inspired by well-renowned architects in the global industry and was driven to address the environmental issues facing the Philippines. The 80th national annual convention is also a way to involve new followers to the green movement promoting a change in culture and attitude of people.
The official calendar evinces the presence of the notable speakers: Kazuko Sejima, Kundoldibya Panitchpakdi and Doosdee Thaitakoo. Unfortunately Shigeru Ban is unable to be part of the event as advertised in the last period. The first contribution is “Architecture is environment” by Kazuko Sejima. She won the prestigious Pritzker prize together with Ryue Nishizawa. The second contribution is “Sustainable Housing in the Time of Climate Change” by Kundoldibya Panitchpakdi and the third one is “Balancing Conservation and Development in Historic Town Centers” by DosadeeThaitakoo, both architects from Thailand. Then there will be lectures about sustainable houses and way of balancing conservation on historical places. All this will be accurately supervised by ProgeCAD that always supports these environmentally friendly causes.
Architects and representatives of non-architect companies are welcomed to join the event starting from Thursday and we invite you to do the same!
