One thing to remember is that construction in the Philippines is a lot different than in many Western countries. Whether you have ample background about construction or a complete novice, there are three challenges that can, most of the times, give you a bad time – labor, language barrier, and culture.
Labor – while there are many good workers around, you’ll find it tough weeding out the good from the bad. If you have never built anywhere in the country before, the first time will definitely be a trial-and- error venture. The bad thing about it is that the errors you have committed will eventually eat up all the money you have allotted for the project. In most cases, there are no ‘second chances’ since there is no more money to spend for the next batch of errors.
Language – while most Filipinos understand and speak the English language, in most cases, the construction workers you’re handling belong to the lower education bracket who may have a hard time understanding your directives, most especially, if the directions are in a language that is too technical for them.
Culture – regardless of the abilities of a Filipino worker, there is a specific work ethic that he is used to doing and while his way may be tolerable to some clients, it may not be acceptable to the standards that you have set.
These are the common issues that confront anyone without experience and wishes to launch a construction project here in the Philippines. So, before you attempt to initiate a construction undertaking, it will be very helpful to do extensive research, not just about people’s culture but also how things are being done.

At every point Gordon was completely transparent with the material costs and pricing and we were pleased to pay a little more knowing exactly what we were getting and that Gordon was checking to make sure we got what we paid for, both in terms of materials and in construction. As with any building project some unexpected elements arose along the way and we also wanted to change a few design elements. Gordon was always accommodating and the prices for extras were transparent and very reasonable.
The experience we had with the house construction meant that we didn’t consider other contractors when it came to site development and the construction of walls, gates and fences. On a 1600 square meter block this is a large project and Gordon and his team have again delivered, on time and within budget. I have absolutely no reservations providing a recommendation to Gordon as a man who is trustworthy. A man with a breadth or building and construction expertise, who does what he says and delivers what he commits to.

When I first arrived in Dumaguete, and decided to build a home here, I had no idea how to make it happen. Fortunately, a friend referred me to Gord McKissock. Gord and his team at Negros Construction guided me through the design process, and when we had a design I was happy with, they took it from there, from working with with local government agencies to get the appropriate permits, through the actual construction of the house, inspections, and even getting water and electrical service started. During construction, they kept me informed on project progress. Post-construction, they stayed in touch, and when a few minor fixes were required, they honored their warranty to the letter.
This was the first time I had built a house from bare ground, and Negros Construction made it possible, giving me a great home at a fair price.
Thanks for everything, and you guys are welcome at my resort anytime.
