Estimates and Specifications of a 2-Storey Building (Duplex Type)

Downloadable Cost Estimates (use Export option): Cost Estimates of 2S BLDG
Downloadable Specifications: Specs of 2S BLDG

This is my designed MS Excel program for estimating a 2-storey residential building of duplex type; I also included the specifications I used for the said building.

The format used is from Gammatech Construction Corp. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CLAIM THIS FORMAT AS YOUR OWN. Please ask for permission if you plan to use this specific format.

The program is still in its primitive state, so if you are planning to use this as your reference, please send me a copy of your improvised program [this way, wisdom is shared ;-) ].

Topographic Surveying

This is our contour map of XU Soccer Field (from goal post in front of ICC to goal post in front of Eng'g Bldg.). Surveying by open traverse was used (since the area is small), with the vertical circle set to 0 degrees. Point A was assumed to have a 1.000 meters elevation.

AutoCAD was used in the map-making. Index contour lines were set to 0.05 meters.

Downloadable Data Sheet (use Export option): Topographic Survey of XU Soccer Field Data

The data sheet provided was the one we used in the field. It can calculate elevations instantly upon entering the data. Succeeding worksheets are used for interpolation during map making.

CDO Flash Flood

On the 3rd of January 2009, Cagayan de Oro's New Year was met with tragedy as tropical depression "Auring" devastated the city with flash floods. This has shocked thousands of Kagay-anons as this has never happened in our beloved city before.

The areas of Macasandig and Carmen have our neighbors evacuated. They need all the help they can get - their homes are either filled with waist-to-head level of water or are totally destroyed. Food may be scarce since nobody was prepared for this. PLEASE HELP IN ANY WAY.

-UPDATES-

On January 11, 2009, another flood has ravaged CDO. This time, the areas of NHA, RER, Kauswagan, Iponan, Bulua, Canitoan, Lapasan, Macasandig, and neighboring towns Alubijid, Opol and cities of El Salvador, Iligan, Gingoog are affected. The floods caused structural damages on bridges and roads and houses; landslides; and lives.



This is the CDO Damage Impact Map taken from the recent floods in the city by the XU Engineering Resource Center (headed by Engr. Dexter Lo).

The REGIONAL DISASTER COORDINATING COUNCIL of Region 10 issued this Progressive Report as of January 12, 2009, 07:00 PM.
