Megawide asserts expertise in commercial infrastructure segment with Landers Aseana

Megawide Construction Corporation (Megawide) is set to stamp its class anew as the premier builder of commercial and retail infrastructure— particularly in high-density commercial center grocery stores, with its construction of the newest Landers Superstore inside Aseana Business Park in Parañaque City.

Landers Aseana will be the fifth that Megawide will be putting up—further cementing its stature as a trusted partner of major businesses, this time with Southeast Asia Retail Inc. (SEARI). This project will be the fifth joint undertaking for the conglomerate and the retail firm, following the impressive roster of the latter’s membership-shopping outlets in Alabang, Muntinlupa City; Balintawak, Quezon City; Arcovia, Pasig City and Otis (Paz Guanzon St.) in the City of Manila.

Landers Aseana’s construction started with a ceremonial concrete pouring on March 20, led by the two companies’ executives and officials. 

According to Frederick Tan, Chief Operating Officer for Megawide Construction, the total project will have a gross floor area of 18,710.91 sq. m, and will cost about P554 million.

“Landers Aseana will mainly involve Megawide’s proprietary and innovative precast solutions in the construction system. About 80% of the structure will be precast, such as half slabs, footing tie beams, intermediate beams, girders, columns, and retaining walls,” explained Tan. “This will be a marked increase in our previous successful builds for SEARI, where 20% of precast materials were incorporated on half-slabs.”

He pointed out that Megawide’s precast solutions will enable it to streamline Landers Aseana’s construction, as the fundamental structures will be set in place in a shorter time span, following the process employed in the four other locations. It will also result in reduced long-term costs for the proponent, as well as overall environment-friendly processes .

“Our precast solutions will be key to Megawide meeting SEARI’s requirement for a December 2024 soft launch of its newest Landers branch, in time for this year’s Yuletide season,” said Tan. “Facilitating a quicker turn-around time for construction, they contribute significantly to elevating our clients’ level of satisfaction. This, in turn, will resonate to their customers who will have an added reason to enjoy their holiday shopping more come Christmas time with their new Landers Superstore in Aseana City.”
