PENRO BLDG 2Department of Environment and Natural Resources- I (DENR) Regional Executive Director Atty. Crizaldy M. Barcelo led the blessing and inauguration of the newly constructed DENR-PENRO Records Building in Dagupan City, Pangasinan on February 14, 2023.

Through former Provincial Environment and Natural Resources (PENR) Officer Leduina S. Co, a budget proposal for the construction of the proposed three-storey Multi-Purpose Building was materialized. This is to ensure the safekeeping and storage of pertinent records and materials, decongest the existing PENRO building, and also a venue room for learning events and conferences.

“There are two (2) significant events that we are celebrating, first is the completion of this DENR-PENRO Pangasinan Records Building – first in terms of the compliance to the DENR uniformed façade (colors blue, green and brown) as initiated by DENR Asec. Joan Lagunda under Undersecretary for Management, Atty. Ernesto Adobo. Secondly, sa lahat po ng may records building, ang may separate records building lang ang regional office. Pag PENRO at CENRO, naka-attach sa CENRO Office buildings. Pero eto pa lang ang nakita ko na nakahiwalay na records building na sa PENRO. Ito pa lang kauna-unahang separate ang DENR-PENRO Records Building,” RED Barcelo said.

The establishment of new PENRO Pangasinan Records Building constructed within a land area of approximately five hundred seventy-five square meters (575 sqm), was built by virtue of a Contract Agreement executed by PENRO Raymond A. Rivera and the CAD Construction Corporation, represented by its President and CEO Mr. Kevin F. Dion.  The new Records building used to be the location of the old Bureauof Forest Development (BFD) Regional Office Building.PENRO BLDG 4PENRO BLDG 3
