Last April 6, 2021, on a Tuesday afternoon, a fire broke out in Salcedo Village, Makati at the Vernida IV building. The fire had spread to the upper floors of the commercial building before it was put out by the city’s Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP). The high-rise located at L.P. Leviste street of Makati was declared fire out by 3:48 PM by firefighters.
The businesses and their corresponding office headquarters residing at the Vernida IV
building had to quickly look for temporary workplaces for their workforce or have their
entire staff return to working from home, after the place of work was struck by the recent
fire. In response to this, the largest flexible workspace provider in the Philippines, KMC
Solutions has offered up their workspaces so that affected tenants can continue to work
in optimal work environments while Vernida’s building management plan for recovery
and relocation for those that used to reside on the upper floors.
KMC Solutions has over 24 workspace locations around Metro Manila, Cebu, Clark, and
Iloilo with 3 sites that are situated within the Makati Central Business District. The V
Corporate Centre, Armstrong Corporate Centre, and Frabelle Corporate Plaza are all of
KMC’s Makati locations are providing assistance through offering free 1 month use
of their coworking spaces to these employees that are required to report on site.
After posting the announcement to the company’s social media pages last Tuesday that
KMC would be opening its doors to all those affected, there are now 2 companies
presently working in KMC’s spaces, not too far from where they used to operate.
The accounting firm, OO and Associates, we’re able to transfer 27 of their employees to
the V Corporate Center, where they were able to occupy one of the flexible workspaces
facility’s office rooms.
On the other hand, Elev8 Media Inc., a media company providing outdoor advertising
solutions to businesses had 39 employees — all of whom were also able to
successfully settle down in the V Corporate Centre as well.
