The Philippine delegation from the Institute of Civil Engineering won the 1st place in the Eco-concrete Competition at the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Spring 2019 Convention held last March in Quebec, Canada. UP President Atty. Danilo Concepcion recognized the winning team, together with representatives from ACI Philippines, UP ICE, UPERDFI and Longridge Construction, Inc. on April 8 (Monday) at the UP Diliman Quezon Hall.

The team is formed by students Alexis Declaro, Angelica Munar, Ryan Ramelo and Paulo Santos. They were supported by their Advisers – Asst. Prof. Justin Jesse Seranilla and Asst. Prof. Christian Orozco. The Philippine delegation was led by the ACI Philippines Chapter President and UPERDFI member Ramon Allado. The team used ubiquitous materials from the campus to replace some components of cement to make concrete more environment-friendly.

We thank the generous donations of Longridge Construction, Inc., Allado Construction Corporation and anonymous supporters for their contributions to the Student Competition Fund.
