The Association of Carriers and Equipment Lessors (ACEL), a Philconstruct co-organizer, participated in this three-day event by conducting technical seminars, called “technoforums.” These technoforums were held at the Sunflower Room of the ASEAN Convention Center and attracted a number of participants from the local construction industry.
The first, held on March 28, had Clemente Ray Dorosan of The Crosby Group as the speaker. A two-part seminar, the first part focused on “Fundamentals of Lashing for the Transport of Heavy Equipment,” while the second part delved on “Safety on Rigging” and was highlighted by an outdoor demonstration. The first part was attended by 16 delegates and the second part had 17 participants.
Held the following day, ACEL’s second technoforum was conducted by three engineers from RMD Kwikform Philippines Inc. – Romeo Sevillo Jr., Arlan Vergara and Nepthali Rubio. It dealt with “Formworks Engineering and Safety” and attracted 38 participants.
The last technoforum, held on March 30, generated the biggest attendance. Fifty-two participants listened to Megawide Construction Corporation’s Louie I. Galicia discuss “Leadership Challenge: Work Site Supervision.”

Attended by hundreds of architects, contractors and engineers from Central and Northern Luzon, it is touted to become another much-awaited leg of the Philconstruct expo series. And ACEL’s technoforums are expected to be included among the Luzon show’s top draws.
