A - Brief Project Description

The purpose of the project is to relocate the senior high school students, faculty and staff from the main campus
(Jacinto St.) to the next, in Bankal, Davao City. The Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU) is one of nine schools
in the Philippines owned and operated by the Society of Jesus. The school tradition at Ateneo de Davao
University is the product of over four centuries of educational experience of the Society.

This tradition started with the establishment of a College at Messina in 1547 by St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder
of the Society of Jesus, and which is now found in many educational institutions throughout the world managed
by the Society of Jesus.

The Jacinto campus was obtained in 1951 with the generous support of the Most Rev. Clovis Thibault, PME,
Bishop-Prelate of Davao. The campus provided classrooms for high school students in the daytime and college
courses in the evenings.

In year 2001, the college enrollees at Jacinto campus reached 7,592 students in 47 courses during the first
semester. This was the time before the new 7-storey building named Finster Hall was opened.

Ten years later, at the start of the first semester in year 2011, the number of students reached 8,015 (55%
female) in 51 collegiate courses. Looking ahead, the Administration of AdDU saw the need to expand the
facilities in Jacinto college campus and added a 12-storey building which is not currently called the Ateneo
Community Tower.

In year 2016, the Administration of Ateneo de Davao University started to open its door for students
enrolling for senior high school because of the implementation of the K to 12 program in the country.
The Senior High School students, faculty and staff now temporarily occupies the 7-storey building called
the Finster Building which was originally used by college students. Thus making the Jacinto campus
congested and shifting the subject schedules of college students having frequent night classes compared
to before the implementation of the K to 12 program.

The disadvantages mentioned earlier lead the administration of AdDU to propose an extended campus,
having a land owned by the University in Bangkal, Davao City, which will be the dedicated campus for
the senior high school program which will provide an environment conducive for learning.

ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE REPORT & MANAGEMENT PLAN

B - Brief Summary of Project's EIA Process

Before the implementation of the proposed expansion project, AdDU was advised to secure the Environmental
Compliance Certificate (ECC) to formulate a more comprehensive plan to be undertaken before the
construction phase, during construction phase, and during the operation phase of the project.

The Environmental Management Bureau (EMIB) of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources of
Region 11 was consulted about the proposed project. The EMB advised that AdDU must submit the
Environmental Performance Report and Management Plan (EPRMP), with its accompanying documentary
requirements - subject to the review and scrutiny by the EMB – before ECC can be granted.

Prior to this proposed project, AdDU was already granted an ECC-Xl-2001-5010-0197 on September 3,
2012, at Davao City, Philippines, by the Environmental Management Bureau of Region XI, for the
construction of Twelve (12) storey Mixed-Use Building, Seven (7) storey Multi-Purpose Assemble Hall
Expansion Project and Related Facilities located at E. Jacinto corner Zamora corner Roxas St., Davao City

C - Brief Description of Existing Project Vis-a-vis the Proposed Expansion

Ateneo, a well-known brand of high quality education that produces competent and globally competitive
students, has attracted numerous parents and students all over the nation, as well as exchange students from
other countries. However, due to the surge of applicants that are being accepted every year, the structure can
no longer fully support the necessities of each student.

This is the main reason that in year 2000, the Ateneo de Davao University ventured into another infrastructure
expansion.

In year 2001, the school constructed the mixed-use building in its Jacinto campus named Finster Hall – a 7-
storey building with a basement level food court, with 110 new rooms and offices. In the Finster Hall, Ateneo
de Davao became the first university in Davao City to have three 20-person service elevators and a state-of-
the-art auditorium with 600 seats.

In year 2012, the school ventured for into further expansion in its Jacinto Campus. A twelve (12) storey mixed-
use building and a seven (7) storey multi-purpose assemble hall was constructed to further extend and propagate
the services offered by AdDU.

In year 2016, due to the implementation of the K-12 program, the levels of education offered by Ateneo
increased yet they can no longer expand their infrastructures in Jacinto campus due to land restrictions. This
lead to the proposed extension of the Ateneo campus to be located at Bangkal, Davao City.

As AdDu needed to expand its capacity and at the same time enhance the quality of education system to cope
with the ever changing needs of time, it is imperative to construct new buildings and other relevant facilities
and equipment which will be implemented in the year 2017.

environment of the locality, as the project shall involve movement of people and vehicles, and nation-building.

The representative of the project proponent (AdDU) went to the various agencies of government sector to
inquire for the required documents and the necessary preparations for the implementation of the proposed
building expansion project of the school.

The proposed project was presented to the Barangay Officials of Barangay 32-D where the project is to be
constructed and the Head of Barangay issued a "Certificate of No Objection."

Moreover, the Zoning Certification was also issued by the Davao City Planning and Development Office
(DCPDO) which certified that the project site is suitable for light commercial use and for general institution
zone. Hence, the proposed project conforms to the zoning program and land use plan of the City Government
of Davao.

A consultation was also made with the key personnel of the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB of
Region XI) of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. They advised that it is most appropriate
to prepare an EPRMP for the proposed project in order for the EMB Region XI to issue an Environmental
Compliance Certificate (ECC).

3.1 Basic Project Background and Information

The purpose of the project is to relocate the senior high school students, faculty and staff from the main campus
(Jacinto St.) to the next, in Bankal, Davao City. The Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU) is one of nine schools
in the Philippines owned and operated by the Society of Jesus. The school tradition at Ateneo de Davao
University is the product of over four centuries of educational experience of the Society.

This tradition started with the establishment of a College at Messina in 1547 by St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder
of the Society of Jesus, and which is now found in many educational institutions throughout the world managed

The Jacinto campus was obtained in 1951 with the generous support of the Most Rev. Clovis Thibault, PME,
Bishop-Prelate of Davao. The campus provided classrooms for high school students in the daytime and college
courses in the evenings.

In year 2001, the college enrollees at Jacinto campus reached 7,592 students in 47 courses during the first
semester. This was the time before the new 7-storey building named Finster Hall was opened.

Ten years later, at the start of the first semester in year 2011, the number of students reached 8,015 (55%
female) in 51 collegiate courses. Looking ahead, the Administration of AdDU saw the need to expand the
facilities in Jacinto college campus and added a 12-storey building which is not currently called the Ateneo
Community Tower.

In year 2016, the Administration of Ateneo de Davao University started to open its door for students enrolling
for senior high school because of the implementation of the K to 12 program in the country. The Senior High
School students, faculty and staff now temporarily occupies the 7-storey building called the Finster Building

subject schedules of college students having frequent night classes compared to before the implementation of
the K to 12 program.

The disadvantages mentioned earlier lead the administration of AdDU to propose an extended campus, having
a land owned by the University in Bangkal, Davao City, which will be the dedicated campus for the senior high
school program which will provide an environment conducive for learning.

3.2 Project Rationale

The proposed project is intended to enhance the AdDU' s competitive edge in the education sector and to
strengthen the school's capabilities to support its program to uplift the educational system in the Philippines.
11 | ATENEO DE DAVAO UNIVERSITY
ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE REPORT & MANAGEMENT PLAN

The rapid technological advancement and continuing evolution of global economy, culture, social interaction,
climate-change, environment, fields of sciences, etc., requires educational institutions to be abreast with these
developments and prepare its organization, especially, its students to adopt and conquer challenges.

Hence, it is necessary to expand its infrastructure and capacity not only to enroll more students but also to open
new courses relevant to the changing challenges of times. Thus, the AdDU is determined to add the proposed
project in its existing facilities at Jacinto campus.

3.3 Complete Project Location (with geographic coordinates)

The project site is located at Barangay 32-D of Davao City on a titled property covered by the
following lot titles:

The project site is about a kilometer away North-East from the seat of government of Davao City. The property
is geographically situated at latitude 70 7 8.37" North and longitude 125 ° 61' 347" East. It is bounded by M.
Roxas street on the West side, C.M. Recto Street on the North side, by E. Jacinto street on the East side, and
by Father Zamora street on the South.

The location of the proposed project is Certified by the Davao City Planning and Development Office as a light
commercial and institutional zone (please refer to Annex F-i and Annex F-2).

3.4 Project Site Considerations

The site of the proposed project does not belong to an environmentally critical area (non-ECA). It is situated
within the AdDU' s Jacinto campus, which is wholly owned by the school.

After a thorough study on several options, the Administration of AdDU found that the proposed site of this new
project is the most appropriate as it will complement the existing facilities of its existing campus. It will boost
the productivity of the school staff and faculty.

The Jacinto campus of AdDU is almost a whole city block, bounded by four (4) well-paved streets. It is situated
at the heart of the Davao City and it is where the main routes of public utility vehicles from the northern and
southern part of the city intersect. Thus, it makes the site very accessible for the students, the teaching staff,
and other school workers.

ENVIRONMENTAL
PARAMETERS
IMPACT ASSESSMENT
AND MITIGATION

4.1 The Land

The vicinity of the proposed project is characterized by a highly urbanized area. The site is
situated in Barangay 32-D of Davao City. Barangay 32-D has a land area of 12 hectares
subdivided into seven (7) Puroks. It is accessible by land transportation through the streets of
Roxas Boulevard, E. Jacinto St., M. Quezon Boulevard, and R. Magsaysay Avenue. The proposed
project site is about one kilometer away from the City Hall of Davao.

The existing AdDU Jacinto Campus is the most iconic landmark in Barangay 32-D. The project
site is within the contiguous coastal plains of downtown Davao City. It exhibits a flat terrain with
a general elevation of approximately twenty (20) meters above sea level, with a slope class range
of 0-3%.

The present land uses within the vicinity are built-up structures for commercial, institutional, and
residential use. There are intermittent vehicular traffic congestions at the streets adjacent to the
site, especially, during rush hours, as the project location is at the heart of the business district of
Davao City.

There are few pockets of green areas within the project site and its vicinity. These green areas are
planted with acacia, neem, and mango trees (inside AdDU Campus) and commercial trees along
Roxas Boulevard and Jacinto Street, and ornamental plants within mini parks on the street islands
of Roxas Boulevard.

The soil type is a soft soil profile mainly composed of silt and sand up to 60 meters deep.

4.2 The Water

The project site has no body of water in its vicinity and is not situated in an environmentally
critical area (non-ECA). The entire compound of AdDU’s Jacinto Campus is surrounded by
public drainage which leads to the Davao Gulf - about eight hundred (800) meters away from the
eastern side of the site.

The location of the project and its vicinity is under the franchise area of the Davao City Water
District which supplies potable drinking water.
16 | ATENEO DE DAVAO UNIVERSITY
ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE REPORT & MANAGEMENT PLAN

The water table within the vicinity is about 1.5 meters. Some establishment has shallow wells
where they used ground water for cleaning and washing purposes.

The proposed project shall have a rainwater collection system from its roof and contain it in the
water tank. The collected rainwater shall be used for toilet cleaning, miscellaneous washing, and
watering the plants.

The effluent that would come out from the project is in a form of domestic wastes which shall
pass through the individual 3-stage septic vaults before it is discharged into the public drainage
along Roxas and Jacinto Streets.

4.3 The Air

The city of Davao belongs to the 4th climactic type wherein rainfall is distributed the whole year
round, except when interfered with El Niño phenomenon where dry period is abnormal for several
months.

Based on the rainfall data of PAGASA station in Davao City, the average precipitation from 1961
to 2005 ranges from 88 to 210 mm, with an annual mean value of 1,896 mm. The amount of
rainfall is evenly distributed in the months of April to November. The precipitation decreases in
December to March when average rainfall ranges from 88 to 122 mm. On the monthly basis, the
month of March has the lowest precipitation depth (rainfall).

The average relative humidity in Davao City ranges from 78 to 82 percent year-round. There is a
slight pattern of low humidity in the area between the months of March and June. The annual
mean temperature from 1997 and 2005 ranges from 27.0 to 28.0 degree centigrade.

The prevailing wind direction and average velocity recorded by PAGASA reveled three (3)
patterns. From January to April, the wind blows in a northeast direction at a minimum wind
velocity of two meters per second (2 mps) and maximum of three meters per second (3 mps).

As of year 2010, data from PAGASA Davao showed significant fluctuations in weather pattern.
This was attributed to the long dry spell brought by the El Niño and immediately followed by La
Niña phenomenon which abnormally poured 137 mm of water on April 5, 2011.

Comparative weather data of Davao Region as recorded by PAGASA station:

TEMPERATURE HUMIDITY RAINFALL

17 | ATENEO DE DAVAO UNIVERSITY
ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE REPORT & MANAGEMENT PLAN

The quality of air in the project area and its vicinity is relatively wholesome with no visible smog,
dusts, and smoke.

The level of noise in the area varies every hour of the day as it mainly comes from both public
transport utilities and private vehicles passing by.

4.4 The People

The primary source of income of the local residents in Barangay 32-D is through employment in
both the government and private companies. Others derived their income from boarding houses,
sari-sari stores, carenderia, operating and driving tricycles, and construction jobs.

The construction of the proposed project of AdDU at Jacinto Campus will not pose or offer
impediments to the socio-cultural development of the local residents. Consistent with the social
development program of the school, a big number of local residents who are skilled or unskilled
but capable to handle specific works shall be employed in the construction stage of the project.

During the regular operation of the project, there will be an increase in economic activities in
Barangay Zone 32-D because of the projected increase of students and teaching staff.

The socio-economic profile of Barangay 32-D as of year 2011 is herein presented to wit:

ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE REPORT & MANAGEMENT PLAN

Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) and Federation of Accrediting Associations of the
Philippines (FAAP);

The accreditations was granted to the University “for its long tradition of exemplary accomplishments
in the areas of instruction, research and community service and high performance of its graduates in
government licensure examinations; for the laudable practices leading to internal efficiency and
external productivity; for its meritorious record of excellence as evidenced by the high level of
performance of program accreditation and effective assurance mechanisms.”

6 – ENVIRONMENTAL RISK ASSESSMENT

The project proposed does not belong to the environmentally critical project and the project site is not an
environmentally critical area, the only possible major risk that could greatly have an impact and damage to
the structure is the occurrence of major earthquake that might cause the building to collapse. The proximity of
the existing building in the area is suitable enough to lessen fire impact if in case, there is an existing open
fire from the neighborhood. The location of the area is quite far from the access road. This might be a
disadvantage if a disaster occurs in the area, the disaster respondents might take time in entering the area.

7 – ENVIRONMENTAL RISK CATEGORIZATION (PEMAPS)

8 – ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT PLAN (EMP) FOR THE CURRENT PROHECT AND


PROPOSED EXPANSION (EMP & EGF)

The Ateneo de Davao University have always made it a priority to strictly follow environmental standards.
Thus for the construction of the Senior High School Building, The Ateneo ensures that all measures will be
implemented necessary to contain and mitigate the possible source of pollutants to protect our environment.
