MANILA, Philippines – As every Filipino aspires to have a quality residence in decent and well-planned communities, property developer Stateland Inc. is all set to launch more projects in Batangas, Cavite and Laguna.
Its latest project, Gran Avila, was launched in Calamba, Laguna last March for the economic housing segment while its adjacent subdivision, Casa Laguerta, caters to the socialized housing segment.
The firm said both projects offer affordable homes and carry with them the company’s hallmarks of quality and durability.
According to Stateland, it conducts pre-engineering studies to ensure the quality of land development. These include comprehensive soil investigation, the process of determining the soil bearing capacity to properly design the roads and houses and ensure its structural integrity.
A flood study is also operated to determine the finish elevation of the subdivision including road network, retaining walls and drainage system.
“Flooding is a major concern for many homeowners and the property developer wants to assure its future residents that its proper planning mitigates such occurrences from affecting its development,” the company explained.
Another technical requirement which is an integral part of its planning stage is the go-resistivity study which defines the optimum location of the water source within the project site.
“We want our residents to build their future in good communities. These are made possible through proper planning so we don’t shortcuts when we develop our projects,” said Grant Orbeta, senior vice president for planning and production.
With its almost four decades of service, Stateland ensures that site and land development works are similarly well-executed by making sure its road construction is well-developed. It has undertaken international accepted standards such as the preparation of compacted layers of base course on which the reinforced on concreter roads are poured.
Field density tests, measuring both the percentage of compaction of the backfill material and its moisture content are frequently conducted.
“Stateland’s land development unit makes sure that the soil’s compaction ratio is at the right level before any road is concreted. This guarantees that the soil is strong enough to support the road and vehicular traffic as well as avoid cracks and ruptures on the subdivision’s streets,” the company said.
The company further considered a durable perimeter when building a well-constructed subdivision stating that it helps prevent trespassers from entering the subdivision and retaining wall along the perimeter of the property provides extra supports to the soil which prevents erosion of perimeter lots.
Meanwhile, Jerome Ilagan, head of the architectural department, pointed out that meticulous design, planning and specifications are keys to Stateland’s success.
“Oftentimes, we even go beyond minimum project requirements when we specify materials. Everything is done with careful attention to detail to ensure that we provide optimum value to our clients,” Ilagan added.
Stateland, a 37-year old property developer with 30 completed projects in its portfolio, launched its newest economic project in Laguna, the Gran Avila. With the recent launching, Stateland hereby addresses the need for more residential projects in Southern Luzon.
