Upon the approval of the Board of Trustees of Holy Name University a commercial 3-storey building will rise after the old High School Building in the main campus will be demolished. This was revealed by Rev. Fr. Andres Guban, SVD, the Vice President of Administration of Holy Name University in a formal interview by these writers on Aug. 9, 2010 in his office.
It is the Banco de Oro (BDO) management that will construct the building in a 15-year Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) scheme, says Fr. Guban. Being its builder, BDO will occupy the groundfloor, while the HNU Cabinet members will have the second floor, and the conference rooms and classrooms will find their place in the third floor.
Under this direction, the old high school building which is objectively a fire hazard structure will be transformed into a high-end structure without sacrificing its original architectural design being considered as a landmark or part of a cultural heritage of Bohol.
Fr. Guban made it clear that the alumni were consulted regarding the plan and that they yielded to it in favor of HNU's desire to make the said area a semblance of the original high school building.
If the HNU Board of Trustees will approve of this plan this September, a new commercial building will rise soon in the vicinity of Holy Name University main campus.
Let us eagerly and concernfully wait for the outcome of the Board meeting come September of the current school year.
