For your next construction project in Dumaguete or surrounding Negros, let the professional construction managers at PhilX Support Services do the heavy lifting!

Are you thinking of having some construction done in the Negros? Well if so you might want to consider getting some professional help. The reality of construction in the Philippines is that it is far different in comparison to western countries and it not only due to different construction materials and methods. Those differences are fairly easy for most intelligent people to adapt to with some intensive research, but one area that consistently catches most foreigners off guard, regardless of whether they have a construction background or not, is the labor challenges. Though there are many good tradespeople in the Philippines, the first problem you are going to face is weeding out the good from the bad. If you have never built here, the first time will be trial and error, and those errors you will invariably make, as we all have, will quickly eat up the savings you expected by managing you construction yourself. The second hurdle will probably be language. Though most Filipino’s are passable in English as a second language to varying degrees, your tradespeople will in most cases be of a lower education bracket who though may understand some basics, will usually find it difficult to fully comprehend your directions, especially if you are speaking in technical terms. Another issue most of us have had to face on our first few construction builds in this country is that regardless of how good a Filipino tradesman is, he is used to do things the Filipino way all his life. Though that way may be good enough for most clients, it probably will not meet the standard you have come to expect in the West.

Those are but a few of the issues that we can almost certainly guarantee you will face when you decide to be your own construction manager here without any past experience of building in the Philippines. Besides the headaches, aggravation and frustrations, you will probably far exceed the budget you set out ahead of time which made it sound so attractive.

Philx Construction Management Services is a division of PhilX support Services and is an SEC registered corporation, licensed to do business in the Philippines.

I have worked with Gordon McKissock and his team at Philx over the last 18 months. In the first instance Gordon and his wife Shirley helped us find a block of land. We had been looking for 6 months and Gordon finally found just what we had been searching for. He facilitated the purchase then helped us gain the title through the bureaucracy supporting us to do our part along the way. We wanted to build a cottage and Gordon’s designer presented us with a range of options and we worked with Gordon to get a balance between quality and practical living at a start to finish price that we found very reasonable.

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.

With the help of Gordon and Shirley, we were able to secure a beautiful beachfront lot in Larena, Siquijor to realize my lifelong dream of owning and operating a resort. After the sale was complete, the team at Dumaguete PhilX Condev took over, designing and then building my dream. I am very happy with the professional service and top quality.

Thanks for everything, and you guys are welcome at my resort anytime.
