Official Launcing of USHER Technologies Inc.
The journey towards a future with less casualties, less missed opportunities, and less income loss after a strong earthquake began with a bang last September 2, 2019 when USHER Technologies Inc. held its official launching at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila. USHER Technologies Inc., the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technologies Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD) and Mapua University launched on Monday the Universal Structural Health Evaluation and Recording (Usher) System, a 24/7 economical and hassle-free system that monitors the structural integrity .of buildings and other infrastructures.
Developed to address concerns on the condition of buildings, before, during and after strong earthquakes, Usher is developed by an all-Filipino team of structural engineers and experts in relevant fields that seek to prevent disasters and strengthen the country’s resilience from strong earthquakes.
Attended by representatives from the different local government units and offices, together with private organizations, USHER is humbly thanking everyone who were there during the launch. This event is more than just a celebration; it is a structural engineering milestone for the country.
One of the event's highlight was the ceremonial signing for the USHER Technology Licensing Agreement between the Mapua University, DOST and DOST-PCIEERD with the presence of Mapua University President and CEO Dr. Reynaldo Vea, PCIEERD Executive Director Eric Paringit and DOST Hon. Secretary Fortunato dela Pena.
As of this date, Usher devices have been installed at the Malayan Plaza in Pasig, Prima Residences in Quezon City, One Legaspi Park in Makati, Omm-Citra Building in Pasig, Triumph Building in Quezon City, Everest Academy Manila in Taguig, Alpha Grandview Condominium in Manila and Richville Place also in Manila.
