Manila, July 10 (Engineering Daily) -- The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) is looking into expanding the National Government Administrative Center (NGAC) at New Clark City, its president and chief executive officer Vivencio Dizon revealed.
The NGAC is intended to house the headquarters of government offices, moving them away from Metro Manila, to help decongest the capital.
Phase 1-A includes an athletic stadium, aquatic center and athletes dormitories, which will be used for the Philippines' hosting of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.
An integrated operations building for government offices and two housing buildings for state employees will also rise on the 60-hectare NGAC Phase 1-A development, it was also disclosed.
The development of the NGAC’s Phase 1-A will cost around PHP13.7 billion, of which PHP9.5 billion will be financed by the Development Bank of the Philippines through a loan agreement.
