According to District Engineer Sanny Boy Oropel, their present office building is already old and overcrowded.

The building is set to include the following offices: first fl oor, Administrative, Maintenance, Finance Management, Quality Assurance and Monitoring sections; second floor — Office of the District Engineer, Assistant District engineer, Planning and Design, Construction sections and the Bids and Awards Committee Office.

DPWH Capiz’s First Engineering District was established as per Republic Act 9228 dated November 28, 2003.

DPWH Capiz was divided into two districts — the Capiz First Engineering District located at Kilometer 1, Roxas City and the Capiz Second Engineering District based in Dumalag, Capiz.

Allotted with a budget of 15 million pesos, the construction of the building will start as soon as it awarded to the bidder.
