Proposed Military Training Camp in Plaridel, Bulacan
Keywords:military, training campus, engineering
This study aimed to construct a proposed military training camp in Plaridel, Bulacan, and the campus is located in Bulacan. The training equipment and facilities in this campus are unique. It is the training campus for soldiers. On this campus, students can improve their fighting skills and military abilities. The research method of design utilized in this study was quantitative analysis. The researchers prepared a floor plan and a miniature for this project. The researchers discussed and tried several materials to determine the most suitable materials to construct the military training camp miniature. When the miniature was finished, the researchers conducted a survey. They surveyed two groups of respondents, that is, five civil engineers and five Architects. The collected data were processed using statistical tools and used to answer the statement of the problem. The results of the study in terms of concept, design, feasibility, and presentation were strongly acceptable as assessed by civil engineers and architects. This result indicated no significant difference between the assessment of the two groups of respondents in terms of the cited variables, wherein civil engineers obtained an overall weighted mean of 3.29, which was interpreted as strongly acceptable with the variance of 3.28. Meanwhile, architects obtained an overall weighted mean of 3.04, which was interpreted as strongly acceptable with a variance of 3.03. The results of the study showed the suitable materials to achieve the expectations, such as the toughness and quality of the project. It also showed that the proper handling of funds, proper methods, and correct floor plan could lead to the success of the project.
