According to the governor, the production team can also handle lights and sounds system installations which are normally rented from outside sources by the provincial government during big events at the Capitol.

“Kasabay po ng pagkumpleto natin ng ating mga kagamitan ay ang pagdagdag po ng mga empleyado tulad ng magma-manage ng sound system,” he stated saying that the expansion of production unit will also allow the provincial government in making use of its in-house production equipment instead of spending for equipment rentals.

The provincial chief executive also stated that the building will also serve as archives for the increasing number of important records and historical documents of the provincial government.

Provincial Engineer Antonieta C. Delos Santos bared that the building has a total floor area of 750 sq. meters at 250 sq. meters per floor.

She said that the provincial government has earmarked P17 million this year  for the first phase of the building construction. The project is targetted to be completed next year.

Also present during the brief ceremony were: Sangguniang Panlalawigan members led by Vice Governor Jose Ferdinand Z. Calimlim, Jr., and department heads led by Provincial Administrator Nimrod S. Camba.

Rev. Fr. Hernan Caronongan led the blessing of the site.
