For nearly half a century, Aboitiz Construction has been at the forefront of engineering excellence and innovation, contributing significantly to the growth of the Philippines. As the construction arm of the esteemed Aboitiz Group, the company has embarked on a transformative journey to support the Group's aspiration to be the country's first “techglomerate”.

What is a "techglomerate"? A techglomerate is basically a startup technology company that evolved into a conglomerate, or a legacy conglomerate company that uses technology and startup culture to transform the way it behaves and operates.

Aboitiz Construction has embraced this concept to drive meaningful change, ensuring projects are delivered on time, safely, and with unwavering quality. Their massive transformative purpose is clear: "building for business to prosper and communities to thrive."

Aboitiz Construction envisions becoming the Philippines' premier construction and asset management services provider by 2030. Rooted in their time-honored values of responsibility, integrity, innovation, teamwork, and execution excellence, they aim to foster business excellence and long-term partnerships.

The company’s mission is to offer a reliable single source of innovative engineering, procurement, construction, and asset strategy for heavy, light, and infrastructure industries to drive sustainable growth for our clients, team members, and host communities and build a better future for a better Philippines.

Aboitiz Construction has a vast experience in building plants across various sectors, including power, oil & gas, chemical, cement, mining, logistics, and manufacturing. In infrastructure, it has successfully completed projects involving transmission lines, substations, land developments, and marine works. It also offers maintenance services for the power, cement, mining, and transportation industries, along with equipment rental.

Aboitiz Construction safely completed its maintenance works for GNPower Dinginin’s power plant
in Mariveles, Bataan. The scope of work includes supply of labor services, tools, and professional
expertise for the plant’s Unit 1 HR8 Sootblower Lance Tube Replacement.

Project delivery schemes include Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC), Early Contractor Involvement (ECI), Design and Build, Build Only, Main Contractor, and Subcontractor.

What truly sets Aboitiz Construction apart is its commitment to innovation. They are among the first in the country to use fully-automated equipment, ensuring unparalleled accuracy and efficiency. It has also recently engaged Fragile to Agile, a global visionary consulting firm, to create a digital transformation plan. This strategic roadmap aims to position the company as the leading construction firm in the country.
