Shortcreting Works in Phase 9-C

One of the major considerations for success in the Real Estate Industry is the Developer's credibility. MRO Development Corporation (MRO) enjoys a credibility that has been untainted in over 45 years. As a major player in the industry, MRO continues its legacy of providing quality high-end subdivisions to the Cebuanos – where safety and security have always been a priority.

In keeping with this legacy MRO, in 2001, invested a large amount of time and money to secure the unsupported slopes in a portion of Phase 9-C in Busay. The rehabilitation measures included Soil Nailing and Shotcreting, a 1st of its kind in Cebu City. These technologies are prevalent in Hongkong, where the terrain is prone to geologic hazards. Shotcreted areas in Hongkong are able to withstand high-rise structures.

Soil Nailing is the process of drilling holes – 5 to 10 meters in depth – into the mountains. Deformed bars are inserted into the holes and cement is, thereafter, poured through the bars. The poured cement would penetrate and find its way through the holes and cracks thereby strengthening and increasing the safety factor of the lot.

Shotcreting, on the other hand, involves the use of wire mesh installed on the exposed surface of the mountains to protect the slopes from erosion. With the use of a Guncrete Machine, a 4 inch thick concrete is plastered and sprayed to cover the mesh.
Soil Nailing and Shotcreting, however, have been applied on the Open Spaces and in areas that are not salable. All Salable Lots in the Park are deemed sound and stable, and thus, suitable for house construction.

With these mitigating measures, MRO continues to enjoy the trust of not just its homeowners and investors but of the government regulating agencies such as the HLURB and the EMB-DENR. This is the same trust and confidence that has made Maria Luisa Estate Park a byword synonymous to beauty and quality.
