ITPI graces IBP golf tourney

Primavera Residences fast becoming a valued member of the Kagay-anon community.

ITPI Corp. (ItalPinas Euroasian Design and Eco-Development), the company behind the eco-friendly condominium development Primavera Residences, is fast becoming a valued member of the Kagay-anon community.

This was evident when ITPI was one of two institutions invited by the Integrated Bar of the Philippines-Misamis Oriental chapter to grace its Open Golf Tournament held over the weekend, November 23-24, at the Pueblo de Oro Golf & Country Club in Cagayan de Oro City.

The tournament, which brought together lawyers from across Misamis Oriental, was meant both as a bonding and fund-raising activity.

According to the tournament director, Atty. Joel Dexter C. Nagtalon, proceeds of the event are expected to fund several projects of the IBP-Misamis Oriental, including its Rule of the Law: Sword and Shield Project.

Funds will also go to set up a paralegal institution for law students and freshly minted lawyers, renovate the IBP building in the city, buy furniture for some of the city’s court rooms and increase legal aid activities.

“Apart from funding our (the IBP chapter’s) scheduled projects, a certain amount will also be set aside to be donated to victims of typhoon Yolanda,” Atty. Nagtalon said.

Meanwhile, Atty. Robert W. Raypon, the president of the IBP- Misamis Oriental chapter who invited ITPI to the tournament, said the event was also meant as a “bonding event.”

“The tourney was also mean to increase camaraderie within the IBP chapter,” he explained.

Primavera Residences, the first eco-friendly condominium development in Cagayan de Oro city, is both its first project and currently, its flagship program. It boasts of several green building and sustainability features, including a ventilation system that slashes air conditioning consumption by 32 percent. This system was inspired by a termite mound’s natural ventilation scheme.

ITPI specializes in the design and development of sustainable buildings, so all of its projects can be considered “green.”

Aside from ITPI, Toyota Cagayan de Oro was the only other company invited to the exclusive IBP event.

Dubbed Mindanao’s auto-hub, Cagayan de Oro is host to the showrooms of Toyota, Honda, Mitsubishi, Suzuki, Ford, Kia, Foton, Mazda, Chevrolet, BMW, Peugeot, Hyundai and Subaru and other renowned car manufacturers.
