Upgraded Building of Compania Maritima in Cebu City: A Project-Based Proposal
This study aims to renovate the abandoned building of Compania Maritima in Cebu City, which is previously known as Shamrock Hotel. In the process of constructing the building, the researchers encountered problems, one of which is how the respondents assess the level of acceptability in terms of the suitability, feasibility, timelines, and presentation, which is known as the statement of the study. The study is necessary to give the readers and other future researchers knowledge and importance of the building. Further reading the content will give the readers or the future researchers important details such as how the miniature is constructed, the results, and the discussions. This study aims to renovate the abandoned building of Compania Maritima in Cebu City. Through the data gathered, the researchers found out the following. The two groups of respondents, which are the Civil Engineer students and Architecture students, assessed the level of acceptability by using the Likert scale. The obtained results in terms of suitability, feasibility, timeline, and presentation were 4.64 for Civil Engineer students and 4.61 for Architecture students, which were both interpreted as very highly acceptable. The study shows the correct materials can achieve the expectation such as toughness and quality of the project. It also shows the proper handling of funds, proper methods, and a correct floor plan can lead to the success of the project. These findings are also connected to system dynamics as a model-based theory in 2008 by Schwaninger and Grosser and the development of design structures in modern Japan by Isohata and Kida. This study has several flaws, including some methods, materials, and designs that can lead to another research.
