As part the Aboitiz Group’s Great Transformation, Aboitiz Construction is one of the first construction companies in the country that pursued the digitalization of its equipment on project sites.

The construction works for the second phase of the LIMA Estate (LIMA) expansion is progressing quickly and on schedule, thanks to Aboitiz Construction – the construction arm of the Aboitiz Group – which secured the deal to do the site development works for this massive industrial complex.

This year, Aboitiz Construction is targeting to complete the facility construction works for the expansion of LIMA, a 794-hectare industrial-anchored estate in Lipa-Malvar, Batangas.

To be completed in 2023, the 57-hectare expansion project aims to expand the industrial lot inventory of LIMA to accommodate new businesses in the area and generate up to 22,000 job opportunities.

Last month, Aboitiz Construction also finished constructing another 69kV overhead transmission line project that consists of 37 electric poles for Lima Enerzone (LEZ), the electric distribution utility company operating the distribution systems of LIMA Estate. The project effectively increases LEZ’s reliability and doubles capacity to 100 megawatts (MW). This also provides supply connection redundancy to LIMA, as Line 2 may be used as contingency in case Line 1 is interrupted or vice versa.

Aboitiz Construction is a privately held company that has been operating in the construction and engineering industry for 46 years.

As one of the first construction companies in the country to pursue digitalization of its equipment on project sites, Aboitiz Construction is a vital component of the Group’s Great Transformation to a techglomerate.
