THE Subdivision and Housing Developers Association (SHDA) Inc., in collaboration with the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD), held its annual National Developers Convention, themed “Beyond The Pandemic: The Future of Housing.”
“Our key partner agencies: DHSUD, Pag-Ibig BOI and ARTA are committed to resilient building for better homes and process innovations to streamline regulatory choke points,” said Rosie Tsai-Wang, SHDA chairman.
The conclave centered on providing an avenue for housing and property developers, key practitioners in the housing industry from the national and local government, and key stakeholders in the housing sector to discuss how they can partner in redesigning the housing industry through innovation and green initiatives with the ultimate goal to create smart subdivisions.
The event, likewise, highlighted the most talked-about trends in the housing development sector, including the return-on-investment or ROI on going green for housing projects, disruptive and innovative technologies in housing development, and the creation of smart subdivisions, which is a vital component in making smart cities possible.
Guest speakers talked about the gains of using green initiatives and technological innovations to lower costs in building mass housing projects.
“We want to showcase innovative tech solutions to pain points experienced by housing developers,” Maya K. Colayco, SHDA governor, said.
“We want to show our member developers and colleagues in the housing industry that it is not just desirable, but also financially feasible to build a green mass-housing subdivision,” added Atty. Joy Z. Manaog, first vice president and chair of the National Convention Committee.
With more than 300 members from chapters in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, SHDA is the major and leading organization of housing developers in the Philippines.
