First Balfour completed its accommodation project for the frontliners of The Medical City (TMC) at the Metrotent Convention Center last Saturday, 18 April 2020.

An initiative of First Philippine Holdings (FPH), the project addresses the need for comfortable sleeping spaces for the hospital personnel and support staff of TMC who are affected by the shutdown of mass public transportation following the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine.

The 1,440-square meter event venue was converted into a facility with 40 bullpup tents and 120 mattresses complete with pillows, linens, and blankets. It also offers basic amenities such as access to clean bathrooms and internet connection with six WiFi routers provided by Sky Cable. FPH will also be providing food catering services for TMC personnel while First Balfour will ensure the provision of reliable power supply by refueling its two 400 kVA generator sets daily.

Our company [TMC] is really in awe of the generosity coming from the Lopez Group. We were just expecting mattresses but tents were provided too to give more privacy to our women personnel. Food will also be provided for our staff and for that, we are really grateful,” shared TMC Project Coordinator for Board and Lodging Mary Joy Barbin.

Metrotent was converted into a facility with 40 bullpup tents and 120 mattresses complete with pillows, linens, and blankets.

Metrotent will be ready for use beginning today until 15 June 2020.

The project was led by Industrial Projects Division (IPD) Head Rey G. Villar, IPD Energy Sector Head Nelson R. Cartagena, and Project Manager Jerwin Benosa.
